Building Your Case & Filing Your Claim
Stop sign accidents are one of the most common types of car accidents that
lead to serious or fatal injuries. Aggressive and distracted drivers are
responsible for the high incidence of accidents involving failure to stop
at a stop sign or traffic signal. A victim who survives may be facing
a long period of medical treatment, surgeries, or long term nursing care.
In the most tragic cases, the victim is permanently disabled or disfigured,
or dies as a result of the accident.

Why You May Need Our Legal Protection
Cases that involve a failure to stop at stop sign are resolved through
an insurance claim filed against the negligent driver, or if contested,
can proceed to civil court. As trial lawyers, we are highly proficient
in case development and negotiations with the insurance company in our
efforts to get a claim paid fairly. However, this is easier said than done.
More often than not, insurance companies may try to pay out the minimum
compensation possible, which may not be the amount you need to cover all
of your losses and expenses. If you are contacted by an insurance adjuster,
it may be extremely beneficial for you to withhold giving out any information
and getting in touch with an injury lawyer.
The statement you make could significantly reduce the value of your claim. For example, should the insurance company discover that you have been
treated in the past for any pre-existing physical condition, it could
be claimed that your case has a lesser value. We have confronted insurance
companies on these issues for many of our clients.
