Hurt In Any Accident?

A recent article about a car accident near Batesville, Indiana, reports a common scenario.  At an intersection, one driver disregarded a stop sign; as a result, his car collided with another car, resulting in injuries to himself, the other driver, and two of his own passengers.

Car accidents at stop signs occur frequently; according to a Journal of Safety Research study conducted in 2003 (“Analysis of motor-vehicle crashes at stop signs in four US cities”), there are hundreds of thousands of stop sign accidents every year, and roughly 1/3 result in injuries.

If there’s a side impact collision, which is one of the most common types of car accidents at stop signs, multiple passengers are likely to be hurt, even killed.  Rear-end crashes are also frequent at stop signs, when one driver has properly stopped but another driver approaching from behind fails to do so; this can result in injuries such as severe whiplash.

In the aftermath of a stop sign accident, it’s important to determine if you’re a victim of another driver’s negligence on the road.  There are a number of ways drivers behave negligently at stop signs, including:

  • Breezing past the stop sign; on top of that, the negligent driver may be speeding.
  • Not coming to a complete stop or stopping for an insufficient amount of time.
  • Failing to look for other cars at the intersection.
  • Misjudging distances between cars.
  • Getting caught up in distractions, including talking on a cellphone, texting, fiddling with the radio, or interacting with other passengers in a distracting fashion.
  • Driving while intoxicated.

If you live in or around Indianapolis, reviewing the details of your accident with an Indianapolis car accident lawyer will help determine whether or not you have a case.  Along with damages to your vehicle, you and your passengers may be left with steep medical bills following a stop sign accident.  We will fight for your fair treatment from insurance companies and compensation from those responsible for the accident.  Don’t hesitate to contact us for assistance.
