New research indicates that some Fresno county intersections could be more dangerous than other, leading to a significant spike in the number of accidents and possible consequences for those who cause the accident. A recent study shows that there have been three serious crashes at one Fresno intersection since February 2018. One of those Fresno intersection accidents was deadly, leading officials to wonder why there has been a spike in this particular area.
The intersection of Del Rey and McKinley has been the focus of a local news station’s eyewitness investigation program. There are only two stop signs at this intersection and some residents and drivers in the area argue that traffic doesn’t stop at this intersection. Over the course of just a couple of months, several serious crashes have occurred at that same location.
Those who live and work in the area argue that more needs to be done before another serious or fatal accident occurs. Those who have been personally connected to people hurt or killed in the recent accidents argue that each one of the accidents that occurred at the same intersection involves some type of driver error. They believe that more needs to be done and experts from the Fresno county supervisor’s office are looking into having a study come back from the county roads department that could provide further information.
If you’ve been hurt in an accident at any Fresno intersection, you need to prepare to talk to a lawyer who can help you put together a personal injury claim. You have a limited period of time in which to file a legal claim. It’s far too easy for you to get in over your head if you have not retained a lawyer highly experienced in filing claims. Whether you were hit as a pedestrian or involved in an accident as a passenger in another person’s car, help from a lawyer is instrumental in helping you to recover compensation.
