Everybody probably does it — rolls through a stop sign or turns right without looking. And drivers usually get away with this type of negligent behavior.
However, when someone is injured because a motorist did not obey a stop sign, the injured pedestrian or driver and any passengers may be eligible to file a claim for damages and expenses. It’s important to speak with a knowledgeable car accident lawyer to find out about your legal rights.
