    Compensation for a crash caused by a driver running a red light


    No matter how good a driver you think you are, the potential to be involved in an accident always exists – it doesn’t have to be your fault; it could be caused by a negligent driver running a red light or somebody speeding in wintry weather conditions. So if you’ve been injured by a driver running a red light or driving dangerously, what can you do about it?

    Chances are, you’ve sustained some pretty nasty injuries – whether you’ve suffered whiplash or have been left with a broken leg, it doesn’t matter. You may be eligible to make a claim for personal injury compensation if you have been injured in an accident that was somebody else’s fault. Why should you have to suffer at the hands of a dangerous driver? Your settlement will take into account your pain and suffering, how your injuries have affected your life and any financial losses you have sustained, such as loss of earnings from time off work.

    Why not get in touch with a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after your accident, to find out whether you’re eligible to make a claim? There’s a three-year time limit, so if you delay, you could miss out on a golden opportunity to claim the compensation you deserve.

    Staying safe on the roads

    Whilst there isn’t much you can do if a driver runs a red light, you can stay safe on the roads by being aware of hazards and staying a safe distance from the vehicle in front. Allow other drivers extra room and time to manoeuvre, as this reduces your risk of being involved in a collision, if they behave unpredictably. If somebody else is driving dangerously, or if you believe they are under the influence of drugs or drink, you should report this to the police, as it could prevent an accident from happening.
