Illinois Stop Sign Accidents
Illinois law requires that all drivers come to a complete stop before entering a stop sign-controlled intersection. Despite measures to make drivers safe, nearly 700,000 stop sign collisions are reported annually in Illinois. Nearly one-third of these accidents result in injuries.
Impatience and inattention are the primary causes of stop sign accidents. Sometimes, just taking a few seconds to survey traffic could prevent catastrophic accidents. Injured victims should partner with a qualified Illinois car crash attorney to pursue possible compensation.
