Running Red Lights and Stop Signs
Motor vehicle crashes that are caused by drivers who fail to obey stop signs or red lights frequently result in severe or fatal injuries. Some of the most common cause of these accidents include one motorist doing one of the following:
- Aggressive Driving
- Distracted Driving
- Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
- Driver Fatigue
- Reckless Driving
Because other drivers are often proceeding through intersections under the assumption that cross traffic will be stopped, motorists who go through red lights or stop signs often cause devastating T-bone collisions. Innocent occupants of the vehicles that are struck in these crashes can suffer catastrophic injuries that result in significant property damage, medical bills, and lost wages, but bicyclists or pedestrians crossing streets may be killed.
Any driver who runs a stop sign or red light will be considered negligent and can thus be held liable for all financial damages that innocent victims may incur. Victims can file lawsuits against negligent motorists to recover compensation.
In many cases, people who were hurt in accidents caused by a driver failing to obey a red light or stop sign will have to seek recovery through that motorist’s insurance company. When it comes to these types of cases, insurance adjusters will frequently attempt to pressure victims to accept lump sum settlements to resolve their claims. While these amounts can initially seem appealing, they very rarely account for future lost wages or medical needs.
