Respecting and obeying traffic signals is fundamental to the safety of our public roadways. When we take to the road, we count on every other motorist to follow the rules and stop at red lights. Because when negligent or distracted motorists run red lights, tragedy can strike.
With one of Ohio’s premier motor vehicle accident law practices, the attorneys of Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA have represented countless drivers and passengers injured in red light accidents. Because running a red light is negligence per se—that is, negligent without requiring any additional proof—our team believes it is our responsibility to aggressively pursue those responsible for red light accidents.
Injuries sustained in red light accidents can be severe and even fatal. T-bone accidents, left turn collisions, and other red light accidents can leave vehicles totaled and those inside suffering permanent or deadly injuries.

If you sustained injuries as a driver, passenger, pedestrian, or cyclist, you have the right to pursue legal action against the driver responsible.
