Knoxville Accidents Caused by Traffic Signal Violations

Motor Vehicle Collision Lawyers Fighting for Victims in Knoxville and Surrounding Areas

While all drivers are expected to abide by traffic signals, some do not. Instead, they commit traffic signal violations. By not obeying traffic signals, these drivers are putting other drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and bystanders at risk of getting seriously injured. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident caused by a traffic signal violation committed by another driver, you may be able to bring a lawsuit against the responsible party to recover damages for your injuries and losses. The Knoxville car accident attorneys of Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz can discuss the facts of your situation with you, and we may be able to represent you. For over 30 years, our firm – comprised of more than 30 attorneys and over 120 staff members – has been dedicated to advocating for car crash victims in Knoxville, across Tennessee, and throughout the rest of the South.

Pursuing Compensation for Accidents Caused by Traffic Signal Violations

In Knox County, there are plenty of opportunities for accidents to occur due to traffic signal violations, especially at stoplights and intersections. You could be T-boned by a driver running a red light at the intersection of Highland Drive and North Broadway as you are driving through it – the result of which could involve you sustaining severe injuries to your head, neck, back, and chest. Certain injuries to the head and neck could lead to impaired vision, hearing loss, and even paralysis if the spinal cord is critically damaged. After a car crash, it is important that you seek medical treatment for injuries. Catastrophic injuries may require invasive medical treatment including injections or surgery.

Motor vehicle collisions often leave injured victims with exorbitant medical bills and other losses that can take a toll on their daily lives. To recoup compensatory damages for your injuries and losses, you will have to establish the negligence of the other driver; this can be done by showing that the defendant owed you, the plaintiff, a duty of reasonable care, meaning to drive safely. However, due to the negligence of the other driver, which could be anything from distracted driving to drunk driving, the duty was breached, resulting in you sustaining injuries.

Depending on several factors regarding your injuries and losses, including the nature and severity, you may be entitled to compensatory damages, which can be broken down into two categories: economic damages and non-economic damages. The former compensates for monetary losses, which may include lost wages, medical bills, and property damage, while non-economic damages attempt to quantify the intangible losses, such as loss of enjoyment of life and disfigurement, stemming from an accident and compensate accordingly. Hiring a skilled auto accident lawyer in Knoxville can shed light on other forms of damages that may be relevant to your case.
