You’re stopped at a red light, and finally, the car in front of you starts to move. You start to follow and then…you see it. Another car stopped at a perpendicular intersection, right in your way. Now what? If you’re like most people, you probably have no idea who has the right of way at a 4-way stop. Luckily, we’re here to help clear things up. In most jurisdictions, the driver who arrives first at a 4-way stop has the right of way. That means that if you’re the first to stop, you get to go first. If two cars arrive at the same time, the driver on the left should go first. If there’s still some confusion, whoever has the right of way can proceed when it is safe to do so.

Of course, there are always exceptions to the rule. For instance, in some states, drivers must yield to pedestrians who are crossing the intersection, even if they don’t have a walk signal. In other cases, a driver may need to yield to emergency vehicles or other cars that have the right of way by law. When in doubt, it’s always best to err on the side of caution and let the other driver go first.

How Can Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer Help Me?

There are many benefits to hiring a personal injury lawyer to represent you after an accident. A lawyer can help you navigate the complex legal system, identify all potential sources of compensation, gather evidence and build a strong case, negotiate with insurance companies, and fight for your rights in court, if necessary. Perhaps most importantly, a personal injury lawyer can level the playing field against the big insurance companies that have their own teams of lawyers working to minimize or deny your claim.
