Red Light

Running a Red Light is Negligence Per Se

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.

Red Light Accident Injuries

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.  Contact our traffic crash lawyers now if you or your loved one suffered injury as the result of another driver running a red light, including:

  • Broken Bones and Fractures
  • Airbag Deployment Injuries
  • Side Impact Injuries
  • Paralysis or Other Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Concussion or Other Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Whiplash or Soft Tissue Damage
  • Wrongful Death

Running a Red Light is Negligent

There are many reasons why a driver may run a red light.  Distracted, drowsy, drunken, or simply careless drivers all may ignore traffic signals and cause injuries.

Why a red light injury occurs, though, is irrelevant.  There is no excuse for an individual to endanger the lives of you and your family by ignoring the rules of the road.  If you sustained injuries as a driver, passenger, pedestrian, or cyclist, you have the right to pursue legal action against the driver responsible.

If you or a family member suffered serious injury or loss of life when a driver ran a red light, call or e-mail our Cleveland red light accident attorneys to schedule a free consultation.
