Red Light Accidents And Fault
In a red light car accident, the fault driver is immediately clear. It’s the person who ran the red light at an intersection. If you’re the victim of a car accident where someone ran a red light and hit you, resulting in personal injury, emotional distress, medical bills, and possibly even property damage, you may have a personal injury claim.
To determine if you have a claim you should be able to provide:
- A police report
- Examples of property damage (preferably at the accident scene)
- Medical bills
- Correspondence with your insurance company about claim handling
If you have medical bills and your insurance company has only paid part of your claim, or is denying your claim, you can be one of the many accident cases that turns to a law firm for legal advice.
Traffic law favors those who abide it, and the fault driver’s insurance company, or your insurance company, may be responsible for compensating you for things like medical expenses and lost wages.
The personal injury lawyers at the law firm of Florin|Roebig are standing by to assist you.

Traffic Signals And Right Of Way
Most people know the big three traffic signals and what they mean, since it’s a basic requirement of passing a driver’s test to understand red lights, yellow lights and green lights. However, when lots of traffic signals are present, their meanings aren’t always immediately clear to all drivers. Here’s a look at some traffic signals and what they mean:
- Red light: Come to a complete stop, sometimes called a stop light.
- Green light: Green tells drivers to go.
- Yellow light: Slow down and prepare to stop.
- Blinking yellow light: Proceed with caution.
- Blinking red light: Operates like a four-way stop, in lieu of stop signs.
- Crosswalk signal: Indicates a crosswalk where pedestrians could be present.
Types Of Car Accidents That Happen At Intersections
If you’ve experienced a car wreck, you may need a car accident lawyer to ensure you receive compensation for your claim. A red light car accident can be dangerous for you, the fault driver and other oncoming traffic. Here are some common types of red light car accidents:
- Left turn accident: A left turn accident occurs when a person turns left on a red arrow, or runs a red light through an intersection when the left turn arrow is green.
- Right turn accident: A right turn car accident occurs when a right turn driver is hit in the intersection.
- T-bone collision: A t-bone car crash happens when the front end of one car hits the side of the other in an intersection.
- Broadside collision: Broadside collisions are side swipes that often occur from illegal lane changes.
- Rear-end collisions: Rear end collisions can occur when an accident occurs in traffic.

Collecting On Insurance After A Red Light Car Accident
