Dangerous Intersection Accidents

Manchester Attorneys Helping People Hurt in Dangerous Intersection Accidents Seek Compensation

Collisions can happen on any road, but they occur more frequently on some than others. For example, there are certain intersections in New Hampshire and Massachusetts that have earned a reputation for being particularly hazardous due to the high number of accidents that occur there. In Manchester, New Hampshire, intersections like Amoskeag Circle at the junction of Routes 3, 3A, and 114, as well as South Willow Street and Weston Road, have a history of crashes. Similarly, in Concord, New Hampshire, intersections like Loudon Road and the I-393 Interchange, as well as South Street and North State Street, are known for frequent collisions. In North Andover, Massachusetts, the Sutton Street and Merrimack Street intersection sees numerous accidents yearly.

Drivers navigating congested intersections have a duty to abide by traffic laws and proceed in a reasonable manner, and those who fail to do so and subsequently cause collisions should be held accountable for the losses that ensue. If you were hurt in a dangerous intersection accident, you should speak to an attorney about what compensation you might be owed. The seasoned Manchester personal injury attorneys of Stephen Law Group can inform you of your options and aid you in seeking the best legal outcome possible under the facts of your case. We often represent injured parties in car accident lawsuits in Manchester as well as in other cities in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Maine.

Obtaining Police Reports Following Dangerous Intersection Accidents

One of the critical pieces of evidence in any dangerous intersection accident case is a police report. To obtain a police report for an accident that occurred in New Hampshire, you must submit a completed Request for Motor Vehicle Records (DSMV 505) via the Concord Drop Box. The fee for a crash report is $1.00 per page, with a minimum charge of $5.00. If mailing your request, enclose a $5.00 check; if the cost exceeds this amount, the Division of Motor Vehicles will contact you.

Parties involved in a motor vehicle crash in Massachusetts can request a standard or certified copy of a police crash report processed by the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV). It’s advised to wait at least four weeks after the crash before submitting a request. If you’re an individual involved in the crash, you must meet specific criteria. There’s a $20 non-refundable search fee per report requested. Requests can be made online by providing personal and credential information, including the applicable fee.

Recovering Damages Following a Dangerous Intersection Accident

A party seeking compensation for a dangerous intersection accident must prove that another person or entity is responsible for the accident. In most car accident lawsuits, the injured party alleges the defendant’s negligence caused the accident. To recover on a negligence claim under New Hampshire or Massachusetts law, the injured party must prove that the defendant owed the injured party a duty of care and that the duty was breached. The injured party must also show that the breach was the cause of the accident and that they suffered actual damages as a result of the accident.

Damages recoverable in a lawsuit arising from a car accident include the cost of any reasonably necessary medical treatment and out-of-pocket costs. If the plaintiff could not work following the accident, they may be able to recover compensation for lost wages as well. Additionally, in many cases, the plaintiff may be eligible for damages for pain and suffering.
