Traffic lights and motor vehicle collisions

On Behalf of | Dec 30, 2019 | Car Accidents

Many different factors need to be examined following an accident, especially if a victim is thinking about filing a lawsuit in order to obtain the financial resources that they need. For example, those struck by another driver in Massachusetts often experience various challenges and crashes happen for many reasons. In this blog, we will look at some of the ways that traffic lights can play a role in crashes. Sadly, Feinman Law Offices knows many fatalities have occurred at busy intersections and a lot of people sustain injuries in these wrecks.

For starters, some drivers ignore traffic lights, especially those in a rush. This is extremely dangerous and when someone runs a red light or fails to pay attention to traffic signals, as well as stop signs and other signage, they cannot get away with what they have done if an accident occurred. Moreover, in some cases, the risk of an accident is especially high because traffic lights do not work properly. If you encounter a broken traffic light while driving, you need to watch out (unfortunately, some drivers do not do so in these situations).

Accidents that occur at intersections often make life tough. When a vehicle is t-boned by another vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed, the outcome is frequently devastating. In the wake of a crash, victims are often in a state of shock and have no idea of what to do next. However, many will benefit from looking into their legal options and filing a lawsuit to obtain the funds they are in need of. We write more about car crash consequences on our personal injury page.
