Stop sign violations can become serious when a person is injured or killed.
Thousands of Californians are involved in car accidents each year because someone runs a stop sign.
In the United States, millions of people walk, ride, bike, or drive through intersections with stop signs every single day. Every year, there are nearly 70,000 collisions caused by a driver carelessly running a stop sign. And about one third of those accidents result in injuries.
There are as many scenarios for collisions are there are stop signs in the world. Here are just a couple of example: A driver may hit the person that ran the stop sign, or a driver may be hit by a person running a stop sign. In an intersection with a 3 or 4 way stop, its possible there are multiple vehicles involved. And often, when a stop sign violation results in an accident, it can be tricky to determine who was at fault.
In some cases, it is necessary to investigate the intersection where the collision occurred. We have an experienced investigator examine everything, from the design of the intersection and pavement conditions to the damage to the vehicles involved.
