Traffic Law Violations from a St Louis Personal Injury Lawyer
Traffic Law Violations discussed by a St Louis Personal Injury Lawyer:
Traffic laws are designed to protect people. But every day we see them violated. When a driver breaks a traffic law and causes an accident, the driver acted “negligently.”
“Negligence” is a legal phrase meaning a “mistake” or “carelessness.” Examples of traffic law violations that often form the basis of a negligence claim are:
• running a red light,
• failing to yield right of way,
• failing to stop at a stop sign,
• making an unsafe lane change,
• failure to keep a careful lookout,
• inattention, and
• making an unsafe left turn.
When a driver violates a traffic code, that driver can be held responsible for causing the accident as a matter of law.
A traffic citation is only considered a determination of fault by the reporting officer. Since the ticket is not admissible in court, an injured victim needs a St Louis Personal Injury Lawyer who will prove that the other driver caused the accident and violated a traffic code.
A St Louis Personal Injury Lawyer will take depositions, question eye-witnesses and gather the evidence necessary to prove that the other driver broke the traffic law in question. Eye-witness testimony is critical. The longer you wait to bring your case to us, the harder it is to track down the witnesses who can help you win your case.
