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.
