Car Accidents Caused by Running Red Lights
It’s become the norm.
If you are at a red light, when it turns green you don’t step on the gas,
you look to your left first to make sure no one is running the red light.
It happens so often in Houston that you have to take extra precaution.
You need to protect yourself from being injured by someone running a red light.
Car Accidents caused by running red lights and other traffic violations happen all too often in Houston.
If you or a loved one was injured when another driver ran a red light in Houston or anywhere else in Texas, the first thing you should do is contact our car accident lawyers right away.
In 2008, nearly 8000 fatalities resulted from intersect-related crashes. One in three people claim to know someone affected by running a red light. A red-light offender may be an impaired driver because of DWI, or just simply distracted. In any event, the negligent conduct of red light offenders can cause serious injury to you or your family.
Insurance companies will often try to settle accident claims immediately, and for a fraction of the actual payout you are entitled to receive. Do not let this happen to you.
Some cities in Texas have installed red light cameras to address the problem or red light runners. Here in Houston, red light cameras were installed a few years ago but were then deactivated after a referendum called for their removal.
