Failing to Stop at Stop Sign Causes Serious Newport News, VA Car Accident

Comments (0)
Sometimes in life we take the little things for granted -- like that when we get in our car for a trip to the store, we'll be able to get out the same way we got in, through the door. This was not the case recently for a driver in Newport News, Virginia (VA), after the person had to be extricated from their vehicle by emergency personnel.

The accident occurred when the driver of a sedan pulled into the path of a pickup truck and was T-boned. As a
Virginia (VA) car accident attorney, I see many accidents that occur when drivers try to turn left in front of oncoming traffic. Although this driver did initially stop at the stop sign before proceeding into the intersection, the person clearly didn't see the pickup that had the right of way. 

That's the tricky part about stop signs. Sometimes when
drivers are distracted by the radio or cell phones, they fail to make the connection that they must stay stopped until the path is clear. The driver of the pickup truck clearly has the right to make a claim against the other driver.


Serious injuries can arise from all types of accidents. In cases involving deaths, the families of a person killed can file a wrongful death claim under state laws, whether this occurs in Virginia, North Carolina (NC), or any other state. Our injury lawyers handle all types of injuries.
