Failure to Obey Traffic Signals Is a Negligent Action
Under Mississippi Motor Vehicles and Traffic Regulations §63-3-313, drivers in Mississippi must obey all traffic signals they encounter, and there are few exceptions to this rule. Unless a police officer is directing you to ignore the traffic signal or you need to go through an intersection as a first responder in an emergency response vehicle, you must obey the signal, or you could face a traffic infraction.
When drivers ignore or carelessly fail to obey a signal, a crash can result. For example, running a red light often leads to a collision with a motorist traveling across the intersection under a green light. The driver who ran the signal would be legally liable for this crash and the injuries suffered by the occupants of the other vehicle.
Seeking Damages in a Pascagoula Car Accident Claim or Suit
Most accident victims who recover a payout based on their Pascagoula accident and injuries do so based on an out-of-court settlement. This action requires us to negotiate a settlement agreement with the at-fault driver’s auto liability insurance provider.
When seeking compensation via a liability insurance policy, an accident victim can recover a payout for their documented damages as well as intangible losses. This claim could allow you to recover money to pay your medical bills, future care costs, lost income, and other financial losses. Pain and suffering damages, mental anguish, diminished quality of life, and other non-economic losses are also possible.
At the Morris Bart law firm, we also seek wrongful death damages through insurance claims and civil suits on behalf of clients whose loved ones died due to their accident injuries. If a motorist who ignored a traffic signal caused the death of your family member, we may be able to help.
The Timeline for Pursuing Your Pascagoula Car Accident Case
There is a timeline that accident victims need to know about when they consider moving forward with a Pascagoula liability insurance claim. We like to begin our investigations for our clients quickly after their injuries occur. This early response gives us the opportunity to secure evidence such as surveillance video and accurate eyewitness statements.
There is a deadline for filing a lawsuit based on a Mississippi traffic accident, as well. If we do not file a civil suit for our client within three years, Mississippi Limitations of Actions and Prevention of Frauds §15-1-49 generally prevents us from doing so later. Therefore, we must determine if we need to take the client’s case to trial by the third anniversary of the accident.
