Our team of experienced lawyers and dedicated professionals helps the people whom we represent assert their right to the full legal remedies that are appropriate in their circumstances. Our attorneys have over 146 years of combined legal experience, and our previous successes for clients include a number of six- and seven-figure settlements in car accident cases.

Holding a Driver Accountable for a Traffic Signal Violation

Just because accidents can and do happen does not mean you should be on your own after a collision. Massachusetts law gives people injured in a crash the right to seek compensation from those responsible. Generally, this includes the negligent driver who struck the victim, possibly in addition to his or her employer if the driver was working at the time of the crash. The damages typically available in these cases cover items like medical bills, property damage, missed wages, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.

Massachusetts law makes drivers responsible for operating their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner. The law refers to this obligation as a “duty of care.” A driver who does not live up to the duty is likely to be found negligent and responsible for any crashes that happen as a result.

Drivers thus are expected to obey any traffic laws that apply in a certain situation, such as those involving traffic signals. Traffic signal violations not only may result in tickets and fines but also can put people on the road at risk of suffering a serious injury. Disregarding red lights or turn signals is particularly dangerous because it catches other drivers off guard and may give them little or no time to react. In these cases, it is important that a person injured by a driver’s failure to obey a signal presents clear evidence of that failure, as well as proof that the negligent behavior caused the crash and the resulting injuries. Depending on the situation, this may mean getting police reports, witness testimony, and medical documentation, among other evidence.
