It has been a busy Friday at Burger Law! I filed five lawsuits today in St. Louis City and St. Louis County. Four of the five lawsuits involved drivers who chose to violate the rules of the road and, as a result, seriously injured our clients in car accidents. These rules come from the Missouri Drivers Guide. Here is just a sample of the rule violations that led to today’s lawsuits: Drivers should not cross a sidewalk or crosswalk without first yielding to pedestrians Drivers entering a road from a driveway, alley or roadside must yield to vehicles already on the main road When passing, give bicycles a full lane width. Do not squeeze past these road users. The speed limit is the maximum allowable speed in ideal conditions. Adjust your speed for hills, curves, slippery roadways, limited sight distance, pedestrians, bicyclists and slow-moving vehicles No one should ever be in too much of a hurry or too distracted to not drive safely while behind the wheel of a vehicle. Take your time and be safe out there. Don’t drive intexticated.
