Running Stop Signal Accidents in New Orleans
Hit by a driver running a stop signal?
At red lights and stop signs, drivers are required to stop, but running stop signal accidents are still common in New Orleans. If you’ve been injured or you’ve incurred vehicle damage as a result of another driver running a stop signal in New Orleans, you need an experienced car accident lawyer. We’ll walk you through the claims process so you can get maximum compensation for your car accident claim.
According to Louisiana traffic law, motorists are permitted to make a right turn after stopping at a red light, but doing so requires the motorist to first yield to pedestrians and any other traffic passing through the intersection before making their turn. Vehicles turning right on red lights often cause accidents because they fail to come to a complete stop and yield to oncoming traffic.
How to Support Your Claim after Running Stop Signal Accidents
Any motorist who fails to stop at a red light or stop sign places creates a great risk for injuries to other motorists and pedestrians. If you have been injured due to the fault of another driver, and that driver ran a stop signal, they will likely receive a citation from police on the scene. The police report will help your car accident case because it speaks to the other driver’s negligence and the extent of your injuries.
