Motorcycle Red Light Accidents

There can be many reasons for running red lights. Some reasons include the driver being in a new area, getting distracted by surroundings, or the traffic light could be malfunctioning. The potential for injury goes up when a driver is on a motorcycle. There is a likelihood of injury even when the motorcycle is stopped and is rear-ended by another driver. In fact, in recent news, a motorcycle police officer was killed after being rear-ended by another motorist. Rear-ended accidents at red lights occur when a motorist is not paying close enough attention and does not see the motorcycle or underestimates the amount of time it would take to stop. The motorcyclist can be pushed into oncoming traffic or be thrown from the motorcycle completely. Either scenario can cause serious injury and even death. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety running a red light is the leading cause of crashes. Red light accidents are about 47 percent more likely to result in injury. Red light accidents are also more likely to result in fatality when the accidents occur on urban roads. It is up to every driver to be vigilant and stay aware of their surroundings in order to avoid unnecessary accidents. Any injury can create a challenge in everyday life and it is important to hire an experienced Chicago accident injury attorney that can fight to recover medical bills and other compensation.
