Crash Liability When No Traffic Control Devices Are Present
http://www.mallardlawfirm.com/ Traffic signals, stop signs, and other markers are used to control traffic throughout Florida. Especially in intersections where traffic should be managed to allow pedestrians to cross and vehicles to know when to stop and go, some type of traffic control device is often used. But when no traffic sign or device is present, drivers sometimes forget the rules of the road.
When drivers forget to yield the right-of-way when a traffic control device isn’t present at an intersection, a car accident or pedestrian accident is often the result. In a situation like this, there is typically always someone at fault and someone who had the right-of-way. If you were injured in an intersection accident in Sarasota where there was no traffic control device, you should speak with an experienced attorney about your case.
You may have had the legal right-of-way and can pursue a personal injury claim for your injuries.
