We drive through many traffic lights every day and rely on them to control multiple flows of traffic. While we trust traffic lights to keep vehicles and pedestrians moving in a safe manner,
accidents at traffic light intersections are common and can result in severe injuries. According to the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), accidents at intersections account for over
25 percent of severe injury and fatal crashes. In Rockford alone there were over one thousand accidents at traffic signal intersections in 2014.
As a car accident attorney, I stand up for drivers injured in traffic light accidents. If you or a loved one have been injured in a traffic light crash, then compensation can help cover the cost
of medical treatment, hospital visits, physical therapy, car repair bills, pain and suffering, and other expenses. Call us at (815) 289-3209 to discuss your case with a Rockford
personal injury lawyer.
If another driver runs a red light or otherwise crashes into you at or near a traffic light, you still need to prove fault to the insurance company so you can recover compensation for damages to
your vehicle and reimbursement for medical expenses. Most of the time, these type of accidents give rise to a he-said-she-said dispute with each driver giving a different account of what
happened. In that case, the insurance company will likely deny the claim to try and avoid paying.
Gathering evidence is essential to winning your traffic light accident claim. Favorable evidence can include photographs, witness testimony, police statements, and video surveillance from nearby
storefronts with street view cameras.
If you or a loved one have suffered injuries at a traffic light intersection due to someone else’s reckless or negligent driving, our Rockford personal injury law firm can help you prove the
other driver was at fault and help you receive compensation for your injuries. Call the Law Office of Adrian Murati at (815) 289-3209 to speak with a personal injury attorney about your
