Danger of Running Stop Signs in Atlanta School Zones

Danger of Running Stop Signs in Atlanta School Zones

Atlanta car accidents involving children can be caused by either the child or the driver. For example, a child could suddenly run into the street or a negligent driver could be participating in distracted driving behaviors.

Unfortunately, drivers often run stops signs, roll through stop signs, or don't pay close enough attention to their surroundings when accelerating away from stop signs. Thus, they run the risk of hitting pedestrians, children, bicyclists, etc.

When drivers run stop signs in school zones, serious damage can occur, including:

  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Paralysis
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Internal injuries
  • Death

These are the inherent dangers of stop sign accidents that can occur to children and other pedestrians due to negligent, inattentive drivers. If you or your child has suffered at the hands of a careless driver, you shouldn't be left with the financial burden in addition to your physical injuries. You may be entitled to financial compensation for medical bills and expenses, physical therapy, ongoing medical treatment, lost wages, and more.
