Failing to stop at a stop sign is a common cause for a vehicle accident. Usually, this happens when drivers are driving distracted or driving recklessly. If a driver is using a cell phone, eating, applying makeup, conversing with a passenger, or even programming a GPS, it’s easy to pass up a stop sign and cause an accident. When drivers are driving under the influence or speeding, it’s also very likely that a stop sign will be missed. Despite the fact that all drivers have an obligation to drive responsibly on the roads, thousands of drivers are injured or killed each year because of negligent behavior. The police are currently investigating this accident to determine why the woman failed to stop at a stop sign. Fortunately, both drivers are expected to be okay. The injured sheriff could file a personal injury lawsuit with the help of an attorney to help cover current and future medical expenses.
