Georgia Law Requires Drivers to Obey Stop Signals
Under these laws, drivers need to stop when they come to a stop sign, red light, or another stop signal. They should stop at the stop line, before reaching a crosswalk, or as close to the intersection as they can to see both ways without entering the intersection.
Having a law that states a driver must stop when they encounter a traffic signal is important, because it creates an obligation or duty to stop. This is the first factor we must prove to show they acted negligently and are liable for a traffic accident. These factors include:
- The motorist had an obligation to stop at the stop signal.
- They failed to stop when the signal ordered them to do so.
- Failing to stop caused a collision.
- You suffered injuries and financial losses as a result of the collision.
By proving these four factors and demonstrating the value of your injuries and damages, Bader Scott Injury Lawyers may be able to build a case against the driver who caused your accident and hold them accountable. Call 404.888.8888 for a free case review today.

Time Limits on Taking Legal Action in a Georgia Accident Case
Every state has its own time limits for seeking justice in a car accident case by going to court. While many cases settle out of court, it is important that you protect your right to file a personal injury suit. This right also gives you leverage to negotiate a fair settlement with the insurance company, since they are unlikely to want to have to pay for a trial in court.
Under Georgia law, O.C.G.A § 9-3-33 gives traffic accident victims two years to take their case to court if necessary. In general, you may have until the second anniversary of your accident to file paperwork and prepare to go to court. We will need to determine if we can reach a fair settlement with the insurance carrier before this date arrives.
