Portner & Shure Law Firm Serving Maryland, Virginia & Washington D.C.


Just recently, Portner & Shure won a $19,513 verdict for our client who was injured in a car accident in Prince George’s County because of a red light dispute. The Defendant claims that he had the green arrow, but our client alleges that the other driver only had a solid green light. A solid green light compared to a green arrow means that the driver making a turn must yield to oncoming traffic before turning. After bringing in a traffic light sequence expert, it was determined that based on the timing during the incident in question, our client’s allegation that there was a solid green light was correct.
