Our Michigan car accident lawyers frequently represent clients injured in auto accidents in which a negligent driver runs through a stop sign and causes the accident. Running stop sign accidents are a common cause of serious injury accidents because these crashes are often at high speeds. The unsuspecting accident victim is not prepared for the crash and often has little or no time to take any action to avoid being hit by the other car.
Michigan Laws For Stop Sign Accidents
Michigan laws have specific statutes that address accidents in which a driver runs a stop sign and causes an accident with another car. These specific laws include that the at fault driver was negligent for :
- Failing to bring said vehicle to a stop in compliance with a stop sign which confronted the defendant at this intersection, in violation of Mich. Comp. Laws. Ann. §257.649.
- Failing, before starting, to see that the said movement could be made in safety, in violation of Mich. Comp. Laws Ann. §257.649 and §257.646(6).
- Failing to accord traffic on the through street the right-of-way, in violation of Mich. Comp. Laws. Ann. §257.649(7).
In addition to these specific laws on failing to stop at a stop sign, there are other claims for general negligence that our auto accident attorneys use to prove and win a stop sign accident case.
