Frequently, both drivers involved claim that the other driver ran a red light. Without corroboration from independent witnesses or evidence, an injured party's claim for damages may be denied by the responsible party's insurance company. It is important in such cases for the involved party to contact an experienced Santa Clarita personal injury attorney for assistance as soon as possible following the auto accident. At the Law Office of Robert J. Kaiser, a Santa Clarita personal injury attorney firm, we will fight to protect victims' rights in auto collision injury and wrongful death cases.
Serious personal injury and wrongful death are all to common a result of a negligent automobile driver running a red light. The City of Santa Clarita has installed red light cameras at several major intersections in the valley, but not all intersections are monitored for red light violations. Even at the intersections where red light cameras are installed, the systems do not monitor traffic in all directions. With red light disputes where no independent witnesses come forward on their own, a timely investigation may identify important evidence regarding who was at fault for violating the red light signal. A traffic collision report by the appropriate authority should always be requested in every serious auto accidents. In personal injury and wrongful auto accident cases, it is not advisable for a victim or a victim's loved ones to take a "wait-and-see" approach to protecting their rights.
