Dangers of Running Red Lights
Most people run red lights when attempting to “beat” the light to make it through the intersection. They may also drive through a stoplight when drivers are distracted and fail see the light turn red when entering the intersection. Unfortunately, these accidents can be very severe, especially if you are T-boned by the careless motorist. However, you may be entitled to financial compensation to help pay for the following damages:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death
- Auto repairs
If a driver has run a red light and hit you, you should not have to cover the resulting expenses out-of-pocket.
Those who injure others by disobeying traffic signals should be held responsible for any accidents they cause. Contact the Des Moines reckless driving attorneys of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. today at 877-327-2600 to learn more if you have been hurt by a dangerous driver.
