Running Red Lights
Since the early part of the 20th century, traffic lights have been used across the United States to control traffic flow at intersections. Electric traffic lights use three colored lights – green, yellow, and red – to instruct drivers to either drive, slow down, or stop. Traffic light-related accidents cause a large number of injuries and fatalities across the nation every year. In fact, statistics from 2009 reported over 110,000 injuries and just fewer than 700 fatalities resulting from drivers running red lights. Traffic lights are easy to understand and follow, but when drivers act recklessly or fail to pay attention, they put innocent lives at risk.

Recovering Losses from an Accident
Many drivers choose to run red lights or speed up to catch yellow lights when they are in a hurry. Unfortunately, this increases the risk of a serious accident, and if a driver is speeding, it also increases the force of an accident if one occurs. The majority of red-light collisions blindside the innocent driver who doesn’t have any chance to avoid the accident.
If you were injured because of another driver who ran a red light, you may be eligible for compensation for medical bills, vehicle repair bills, and lost wages from time off work.
