Dealing with the unexpected loss of a loved one can be quite challenging. Unfortunately, innocent people die as a result of vehicle collisions every day in our state. Every year, we see many innocent people lose their lives due to collisions caused by acts of negligence. Leading factors in many of the collisions across our state include:
- Inadequate signage
