In a stop sign accident, the fault is determined by who failed to follow the rules of the road. The driver who failed to come to a complete stop at a stop sign or who failed to yield the right of way to other vehicles or pedestrians may be found at fault for the accident.
For example, if a driver runs a stop sign and hits another vehicle that has the right of way, the driver who ran the stop sign would likely be found at fault for the accident. On the other hand, if a driver properly stops at a stop sign but is then hit by another driver who runs the stop sign, the driver who ran the stop sign would likely be found at fault.
It is important to gather as much evidence as possible after an accident, including witness statements and photographs of the scene, to help determine who was at fault. A lawyer can help you review the evidence and build a case to prove fault in a stop sign accident.
