Red light accidents are more common than you think.
As a red light accident lawyer serving Memphis, Nashville, and the Mid-South area, I see it all the time. Every year, countless drivers are injured and killed by careless motorists who run red lights. It happens more often than you might think. In some cases, the drivers are reckless. In others, the drivers believe they can beat the light. Either way, the consequences of their rash decisions may stay with their victims for the rest of their lives.
Whether the other driver caused the accident because they were distracted, fatigued, inebriated, negligent, or something else, the consequences for the victim driver can be catastrophic.
