When you approach an intersection with a green light, you assume that you are safe to proceed. However, another driver facing a red light may not notice or may choose to ignore the signal to stop. When this happens, the end results are usually catastrophic and require injury victims and/or family members to take immediate action in holding the responsible party accountable for all damages.
Intersection collisions are usually beyond a victim’s control.
