Car Accidents Caused By Traffic Violations

People injured in accidents caused by others' traffic violations may be able to obtain compensation for their injuries and expenses. When motorists drive over the speed limit, follow too closely or change lanes abruptly or without signaling, they place other drivers in jeopardy.

If you were hurt because another driver failed to obey traffic laws, talk with our Cleveland car accident attorneys about your options.

Examples of traffic violations

Causes of traffic violation accidents include:

  • Failing to obey stop signs
  • Failure to obey red lights and other traffic signals
  • Driving too fast for conditions
  • Exceeding the speed limit
  • Improper turning
  • Driving with broken headlights or taillights
  • Driving a vehicle with illegal equipment such as tinted glass or prohibited tires
  • Changing lanes without signaling
  • Following too closely

How our lawyers can help you

Our attorneys consult with accident reconstructionists and other specialists who help us understand exactly how the accident occurred. We start quickly to preserve evidence such as skid marks, damage to vegetation and broken glass — evidence that may be cleaned up or will fade as time passes. And we work with in-house nursing staff and other medical consultants to understand exactly how the accident has affected your life.
