According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), about 1,109 of the nation’s car accident fatalities in 2021 were caused by drivers running red lights. Florida law makes it clear that continuing to drive when you have a red light is a criminal offence. If you’re injured by a driver running a red light, you also have the right to file a legal claim and seek compensation for your injuries.
