Running Red Lights and Stop Signs at Intersections
Failing to stop at a red light or stop sign at an intersection is not only considered negligent behavior, it is also considered reckless behavior as well. Many of the drivers who fail to stop at a red light or stop sign are either inattentive or impatient which typically results in a side impact or rear end collision causing you and or your passengers, catastrophic injuries. Whether you suffer cuts and bruises, broken bones, a traumatic brain injury, paralysis or the death of a loved one, contact Stockbridge car accident lawyer, Tracy Udunka for your free case evaluation, today.
In a 2015 study performed in the Metro Atlanta area, it was said that the top ten most dangerous intersections throughout the metro Atlanta area include:
- Covington Highway and Panola Road
- Memorial Drive and North Hairston Road
- East Park Place and Stone Mountain Highway
- Jimmy Carter and Peachtree Industrial Boulevard.
- Butner Road and Camp Creek Parkway
- Briarcliff Road and North Druid Hills Road
- Cobb Place Boulevard and Earnest Barrett Parkway
- Piedmont Avenue and Monroe Drive
- Steve Reynolds Boulevard and Venture Drive and
- State Bridge Road and Medlock Bridge Road
Although these intersections are deemed some of the most dangerous in the Metro Atlanta area, there are others that are dangerous as well and every driver should use care when attempting to enter an intersection. A good tip to help prevent an accident while entering an intersection, involves avoiding distractions while driving. Distracted drivers are everywhere including in intersections. Do not take your eyes off the road and most importantly, keep your head on a swivel.
If you or a loved one was injured in a side impact collision or rear end collision due to someone failing to stop at a red light or stop sign, you have two years from the date of the date of the accident to file a claim. Do not wait until the two year statute has almost expired to file a claim. These types of accidents may require our office to send an accident reconstructionist to the scene, obtain crucial evidence and interview eyewitnesses to the accident. We will use all of the evidence acquired to demand a fair settlement in your favor or we will use that evidence to advocate on your behalf at trial. Do not delay.
