Red Light Runners and Justice for You

Many drivers, like yourself probably, take responsibility for their actions on the road. This means that you try to obey traffic laws as often as possible and that you expect others to do the same. Unfortunately, some other drivers do not have the same high standards as you do, and engage in dangerous driving behaviors like running red lights. Red light runners may think they are in a hurry and that running the light will help them “get there” on time, but this behavior can actually make an accident much more likely to happen, and might involve innocent drivers like you in the process.

Steps to Take if a Red Light Runner Hits You

Whatever the “reason” a person runs a red light, this is an illegal behavior, and can be punishable. A lot of victims of red light runners are unsure what to do when this happens to them, but there are some steps you can take toward justice, including:

  • Exchanging insurance information with the red light runner
  • Documenting the damage done with pictures
  • Storing any receipts from medical bills or repairs
  • Contacting a legal representative to discuss your situation

Dealing with a red light runner can be frustrating, especially if you are facing bills from medical costs and vehicle repairs, but you might have more options than you think.
