In Missouri, Revised statute 304.016 addresses passing laws. Never pass on a hill, at a curve, or in an intersection. This law exists because intersections are dangerous and have both high volume, speed, pedestrians, visibility issues and distractions. Because a driver must drive very carefully, and because intersections are dangerous and are more unsafe than other places on the roadway, a driver should not attempt to pass another vehicle at an intersection.
Pedestrians have the right of way over cars at an intersection and Cantor Injury Law has won millions of dollars for pedestrians walking in intersections that have injuries from a car or truck hitting them while walking at the intersection.
The first car or truck at the intersection has the right of way in Missouri over other vehicles. Mark Cantor says, the first car to stop is the first car to go. If two cars arrive at the same time, the vehicle on the right has the right of way. So remember “the right way has the right of way”, as per Mark Cantor.
Cantor Injury Law can help you win your case at both a controlled intersection or an uncontrolled intersection. At the uncontrolled intersection, the above rules of right of way, or duty to yield, become more important.
An intersection accident will account for a number of different variables not accounted for with other accidents. Your intersection accidents lawyer will look for important evidence at the scene of the accident like signs or signals that weren’t followed, pedestrian activity, and the flow of traffic. Additionally, things like distracted driving, texting while driving, and drunk driving can be key factors.
