Stoplight Car Accident Lawyers in Missouri
Each and every year in the United States, people running red lights are one of the top causes of car accidents. When negligent drivers run stoplights they cause intersection accidents that often involve highly dangerous rear-end, side-impact and head-on collisions.
At Holder Susan Slusher, LLC, we know the devastating effects of red light violation car accidents. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motor vehicle collision at a traffic light, our experienced attorneys can represent you in a lawsuit against the negligent driver who ran the red light or failed to yield.
As the population continues to grow, and the number of drivers increases, more and more red lights are being installed at intersections. Red lights help ease the flow of traffic so that drivers don't get bogged down by four-way stop signs and blinking lights. Unfortunately, red lights do not ease the flow of traffic enough for aggressive drivers who often speed up and rush through trying to beat a yellow light.
Collecting Valuable Evidence on Who Had The Green Light
Just like any other piece of equipment or machinery, traffic lights are also susceptible to defects. Although rare, there have been situations where a traffic light malfunctions and gives both drivers a green light at the same time. However, more often than not, one driver is not being truthful about having a green light at the time they entered the intersection.
The experienced car accident attorneys at Holder Susan Slusher, LLC know what it takes to conduct accurate and timely investigations. If you have been involved in a car accident at a red light, hiring an experienced car accident attorney as soon as possible may be your best decision. The sooner you hire an attorney, the sooner we can begin ensuring that the injured party has the proof needed to show that they had the right of way, or that the other driver entered the intersection on a red light, or in those rare circumstances, that the light was defectively programmed or maintained. If the injured party waits too long before hiring a car accident attorney, valuable evidence can be lost and the city, county or state might fix the traffic light before a proper investigation can be conducted.
