Were You Hurt in an Intersection Accident?

Our attorneys will help you navigate the twists and turns ahead

With traffic going in multiple directions, pedestrians crossing the road, and too many motorists not paying attention, intersections always have the potential to be dangerous. If you’ve been hurt in an intersection crash, you know that firsthand. All it took was another driver’s momentary lapse in judgment to change your life forever. And now, an insurance company is preparing to take advantage of your pain to protect their bottom line.

You don’t have to go into that fight alone. The Swanson Law Group has the experience and winning track record needed to successfully resolve complex intersection accident cases. If you were hurt in a car crash, schedule your free consultation with our experienced intersection accident attorneys today.

We know the legal issues that can come up in intersection cases

Intersection crashes are often side-impact collisions where the front of one vehicle hits the driver or passenger side of another vehicle. These crashes can cause serious harm because the side of a car provides much less protection than the front and rear. Intersection accidents also frequently involve vulnerable road users like cyclists and pedestrians. When the injuries sustained are severe, the insurance companies look extra hard for opportunities to delay, dispute and deny claims.

Unfortunately, in an intersection accident, there is often plenty of ammunition for the insurance company. Fault for the accident may depend on a split-second change in who had the right of way. Witnesses may disagree on what color the traffic light was, or which car entered the intersection first. Skid marks and other physical evidence may tell an incomplete story. The insurance company will seize on this uncertainty and try to blame you for the accident; after all, if it’s even partially your fault, that’s less they must pay.

Insurance companies may also dispute the extent of your injuries, particularly if you were rear-ended or the accident happened at a low speed – which is often the case in intersections, particularly four-way stops. They may claim you’re faking or exaggerating your symptoms, or even gaslight you into doubting your own pain. To them, it’s all in a day’s work. To us, it’s personal.

The Swanson Law Group will get to the bottom of your accident

As soon as you retain us to handle your intersection accident claim, we’ll contact the insurance company and tell them they can send all further correspondence to your lawyer. Then, we’ll launch an independent investigation to get to the bottom of what happened. We pore over accident reports, review physical evidence, interview witnesses, and cross-reference their testimony. Above all, we listen to your story and work to provide you with clarity and closure. What happened wasn’t your fault, and we’ll help you take control of what comes next.

We prepare every case we handle for trial. Usually, when the insurance company sees that we’re ready to face them in court, they’re willing to offer a fair settlement. If they won’t pay enough to meet your needs, though, we’re ready to take them before a judge and jury. We have the experience and resources to take even complicated cases all the way to trial, and we have the results to prove it.

Throughout the process, we’ll handle the day-to-day interactions with the insurance company while you focus on getting better. We can’t promise a fast or easy resolution; after a complex accident, more often than not, the insurance company chooses to be difficult. There will be more challenges ahead. What we can promise is that we’ll walk with you, guide you forward, and fiercely advocate for full value for everything you’ve lost.

You can count on our legal team to sort out your situation

We represent accident victims on a contingency fee basis, which means there is no up-front cost to hire us. From your free consultation through the resolution of your case, we will invest our time and resources to move the process forward. If we win, our fee is a percentage of the recovery; if we don’t win, you don’t owe us anything. Our job is to advocate for your legal rights, and those rights shouldn’t depend on your ability to pay.

The key is to get us involved quickly. Evidence can disappear fast in an intersection case, and we need to take action before important legal deadlines expire. Don’t go up against an insurance company alone; get answers about your legal options. Contact us today to speak with an experienced intersection accident lawyer about your case.
