Car accidents at uncontrolled intersections can be devastating

While a dangerous collision can occur at any time and place, certain areas tend to be more hazardous than others. Intersections, for example, are a common spot for car accidents to occur, and each of these incidents could pose a threat to the health of everyone nearby. Residents who live near a certain intersection in Montana have taken to painting the road with vibrant colors in hopes that is might remind drivers to use caution and reduce the chances a collision will take place.

Most intersections have stop signs or lights to help control the flow of traffic. However, there are still some areas in Montana that have uncontrolled intersections that do not have lights or signs. At one such intersection, nearby residents recently decided to add a variety of colors of paint and reflectors to the crosswalk and on the sides of the road to catch the attention of drivers and remind them to slow down.

These individuals reportedly decided to take action after witnessing numerous accidents at the intersection. While this may reduce the likelihood that an accident will happen, with common concerns such as distracted and reckless driving, preventing every accident could be nearly impossible. Should drivers or pedestrians encounter such negligence at an intersection, the consequences they may suffer in the process could be severe.

With the extensive costs of medical care, those who suffer serious injuries in car accidents may be left in search of some much-needed financial relief. If another party is deemed at fault in a collision, the victim could choose to speak with an experienced attorney for advice on how best to proceed. An attorney can examine the incident and assist a client in Montana in pursuing the full amount of compensation deserved through a personal injury claim.
