Georgia Law Requires All Drivers to Obey Traffic Signals
Per O.C.G.A. § 40-6-20, all drivers in Georgia must obey the signals provided by traffic control devices. There are only two exceptions:
- When a police officer directs you otherwise; or
- If you are driving an authorized emergency vehicle such as a fire truck or ambulance
This is important in your car accident case because these cases are usually only viable when negligence occurred. There are four factors we must typically prove to demonstrate that negligence occurred. This includes:
- The driver had an obligation, such as a law stating they had to obey a traffic signal.
- The driver failed to obey the signal, breaking the law.
- The driver’s failure caused a collision.
- You suffered physical damages and financial losses as a result.
A South Fulton failure to obey traffic signals accident lawyer from Bader Scott Injury Lawyers may be able to collect evidence to demonstrate all four of these factors when we represent you. This could allow us to show an insurance company or judge how the at-fault driver in your accident acted negligently and is, therefore, liable for the injuries and other damages you sustained.

We serve accident victims in South Fulton and other areas south of Atlanta, as well as the entire Atlanta metro area.
We represent accident victims based on a contingency-fee basis, meaning our attorney fees are contingent on reaching a settlement or other payout in your case. We do not get paid unless we secure a financial recovery for you.
We can analyze evidence, survey the scene of the accident, interview medical experts, and work with accident reconstruction specialists to develop a narrative of what happened, when, how, and who played a role. Then, we can present this evidence to the insurance carrier representing the at-fault driver and demand a fair payout. We may be able to reach an agreement out of court, but if the insurance carrier refuses to make you a fair settlement, we can take your case to trial.

A Two-Year Statute of Limitations May Apply to Your Case
O.C.G.A § 9-3-33 puts a general two-year statute of limitations on most personal injury lawsuits in Georgia, including traffic accident cases.
