Compensation In Stop Sign and Traffic Violation Accidents
Springfield, Jefferson City, Columbia
Accidents Caused By Stop Sign and Traffic Light Violations
Traffic violations are a common cause of car accidents. It’s also common for those involved to sustain some injury because of these accidents. Traffic violations can include speeding, not yielding, and driving with burned out headlights. Two types of accidents that can result in some severe injuries are from running a stop sign or a red light.
Stop Sign Accidents
We’ve all done it: rolled through a stop sign accidentally or when we felt like no one was around. Failing to stop properly at a stop sign is one of the most commonly violated traffic laws.
Stop signs protect drivers and pedestrians. It is negligent and illegal to run a stop sign. If an accident occurs because of a drivers’ failure to properly stop, they can be held liable for damages and personal injury claims.
If you’ve been involved in an accident involving a stop sign violation, consult with a legal professional to explore your options for compensation.
Accident After Running A Red Light
Similarly, red lights keep drivers and pedestrians safe, and it is illegal to run through a red light. This traffic violation can result from a drivers’ recklessness, speeding up to make it through a yellow light, poor weather conditions, distracted driving, or any other number of causes.
Because people are often speeding while running a red light, injuries resulting from a collision can be significant. Some common injuries include whiplash, back injuries, spinal cord stress, injuries from airbag deployment, or head injuries.
