Dangerous Fairfield Intersections

I’m Ed Smith, a Fairfield personal injury and car accident lawyer. Vehicle accidents happen every day and, often, they cause people serious injuries. In fact, data from UC Berkeley shows that over 6,000 injury-causing accidents have taken place on Fairfield roadways during the past ten years. Although there is always some risk of being involved in a crash when you drive, bike, or walk on the road, knowing where accidents are likely to happen can help you to avoid being involved in one.

For reasons ranging from poor signage to high traffic and damaged asphalt, many roadway areas can be dangerous. However, one of the roadway locations where accidents most often happen is at intersections.

Common Delayed Injury Symptoms

I’m Ed Smith, a Fairfield car accident lawyer. When people think of auto accident injuries, they often think of very noticeable, immediate kinds of injuries. Fractured bones, burn injuries, lacerations, and injuries to the spinal cord are all kinds of trauma that may occur in a serious accident and are often visibly apparent.

However, car accident trauma can also leave individuals with delayed injury symptoms that can take hours and even days to become significant enough to be noticed. This blog will discuss a few of the types of injuries that can remain hidden immediately after an accident occurs.
