Can you make car accident injury claims in Islington after an accident at traffic lights?
When in charge of a vehicle, drivers are expected to follow the rules of the road and this includes adhering to traffic signals and stopping at red lights. Although waiting at traffic lights can be inconvenient, it’s essential that drivers do not try and speed through the lights before they turn red or set off before the lights turn back to green as this could cause accidents to occur.
When traffic going in one direction is held at a red light, it normally means that vehicles travelling in a different direction have the right of way and will be using the carriageway. If someone passes through a red light when they shouldn’t, it’s highly likely that other vehicles wouldn’t see them and an accident could easily occur.
In some cases, red lights are used to stop traffic and protect road users from other threats. At level crossings, for example, lights are often used to warn vehicles of an approaching train. If drivers fail to stop, or try and pass over the crossing before the train arrives, a catastrophic accident could occur.
If you have been hurt or injured due to an accident which occurred at traffic lights or signals, you may want to make car accident injury claims in Islington. If you can show that the incident wasn’t your fault, it’s likely that you will be eligible to make a claim and you could be awarded a significant amount of compensation.
