New York City Red Light Laws
Entering a traffic intersection when a traffic light is red is not only illegal, but it can result in a serious motor vehicle collision. In fact, running a solid red light is one of the most dangerous actions that a motor vehicle driver could take while on the road. The offending driver could be pulled over by a police officer or issued a ticket in the event that a red light camera captures the violations.
If you have been injured in a red light accident, an experienced New York City red light accident attorney can determine your legal options.
Ability to Sue the at-fault Driver
Since the State of New York is a no-fault state when it comes to motor vehicle accidents, an accident victim may not be eligible to sue the at-fault driver in every circumstance. However, if the accident victim suffered a bone fracture in the accident or some other permanent injury, he or she might be eligible to file a claim or lawsuit directly against the at-fault driver to recover compensation.
In order to prevail in a personal injury lawsuit, the accident victim must demonstrate that the at-fault driver broke the law, that the accident victim suffered injuries and damages, and that those injuries and damages were the result of the red light accident. In other words, the injuries which the accident victim suffered must stem from the accident itself.
