The Danger of Accidents at Stop Signs
Drivers are obligated to stop and yield the right of way at a stop sign. This responsibility is often violated at a four-way stop or other intersections and the result is an accident. Such instances can result in anything from a fender bender to a serious injury case involving paralysis, spinal injuries, or even wrongful death. A common issue in such cases is that it may not be immediately clear to arriving police officers who was at fault. Establishing liability in such cases can require interviewing witnesses and nearby residents. It may also involve employing an accident reconstructionist. Hiring an Austin attorney knowledgeable about stop sign cases may be crucial to your ability to recover damages.
