Miami Red Light Accident Lawyer
One of the worst things that our society has been left with in the wake of the Covid pandemic is impatient, speeding, aggressive driving. Aggressive driving and road rage have been on the rise since 2020, and continue to take the lives of thousands of Americans every year. Speeding and red light running cause some of the most serious collisions, including T-bones, rollovers, and head-on crashes that cause traumatic injuries to innocent drivers. If you or a loved one were harmed in a red light accident, our Miami red light accident lawyer at Spencer Morgan Law is here to help.
One of the Following Was Most Likely Involved in Your Red Light Accident
Running a red light does not happen by accident. Despite the term ‘accident’ our society uses to describe a traffic collision, almost all car wrecks are caused by driver error—errors that are known to drastically increase the chance of a crash. The following types of driver errors are likely to lead to red light running, and the type of collision in which you were injured.
- Texting and Driving
- Another Form of Distracted Driving
- Impatient Driving
- Tailgating Another Red Light Runner
- Drowsy Driving
- Drunk Driving
Running Left Turn Reds is Becoming the Norm
You may or may not have noticed the impatient tendency that more and more drivers have developed in the last few years: running red lights while making a left turn across traffic. It is not uncommon to see not one, and not two, but three or more drivers go through a red left turn light, forcing those with the right of way to wait. While this usually only causes frustration among others, it can also be the cause of serious injury crashes if the oncoming vehicles are traveling at speed by the time they reach the intersection (and their green light) while those making the left turn are still passing through illegally.
Proving that the Light was Red
Believe it or not, but bad drivers are prone to lying to law enforcement when it comes to describing how the crash occurred. These fabrications are seen in the official accident reports that police conduct following collisions, and it can be devastating to learn that the driver who caused you serious injury has the gall to lie about what happened. However, there are usually many sources to turn to when shedding light on the truth: eye witnesses, your own statements, skid marks and other crash scene forensics, traffic camera footage, and dashboard cameras are a few of these. We are confident in our ability to prove that the other driver ran a red light, that you had the right of way, and that you had no reasonable course of action to prevent the crash from happening once the other driver set the life-threatening chain of events in motion.
