Nationally, fifty percent of serious collisions, as well as twenty percent of fatal collisions, happen at intersections. Orangevale, California is not immune to such statistics. When reviewing Orangevale’s intersections there are some that are clearly more dangerous than others. For example, within one year alone there were 13 recorded injuries at the Greenback Ln & Hazel Av intersection, making it the most dangerous intersection in Orangevale, California (data compiled by 1point21 Interactive). We’ve listed below other major intersections where traffic collisions have occurred.
It’s important to know if an intersection is considered dangerous because if a serious accident occurs, besides a driver’s negligence, a “defective highway design” could be a contributing factor. In the event that road defects contributed or caused an accident, the government entity responsible for the design and/or maintenance of that road may be held responsible for the accident and any resulting injuries. In such incidents, it is important to get an experienced highway defect lawyer involved.
