Running Stop Signs
Stop signs are a signal to drivers that an intersection is not safe to pass through without coming to a complete stop. Many times, intersections have limited visibility and stop signs can help drivers maintain awareness of other drivers on the road, and any possible road conditions that may cause hazards. Unfortunately, when drivers fail to halt at stop signs, they pose dangers not only for themselves, but also other drivers and pedestrians who are using the road. Many people are injured or killed every year in the United States because of drivers who run stop signs.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury because another driver ran a stop sign, you may be entitled to financial compensation to help pay for your injuries and recovery costs.

Dangers of Running a Stop Sign
Stop signs are in place for the safety of all users of the road, and should be obeyed at all times. When a driver runs a stop sign, he or she also runs the risk of:
- Hitting another driver
- Hitting private property/building structure
- Hitting a pedestrian
- Losing control of the vehicle
It is important to be aware of aggressive drivers who may give indicators that they will run a stop sign, and avoid them. Regrettably, you may not have had the opportunity to take evasive action and could have been severely injured as a consequence.
Accidents happen, but you can fight against the financial burden of an injury that you did not cause.
