It only takes a split second of indecision or distracted attention to break a rule of the road. It could be something minor, like forgetting to use your turn signal. But if you run a red light, the consequences can be quite dire as an incident in Commack shows.
Just before midnight on Tuesday, a driver ran a red light in front of North Ridge Primary School. They went through the light at Townline Road, then hit a car and a pole. Four people were injured in the incident. One had to be airlifted to a hospital.
When you’ve been injured by someone who broke the rules of the road, you have the right to compensation. The question is whether or not the insurance companies will give you the compensation you truly deserve. It is in the interest of the insurance company to give you the minimum due to you in your policy and no more.
But we all know how expensive health care is these days. Plus, if injuries develop weeks after the crash as so often happens, you may be out of luck if you already signed an insurance settlement. Before you agree to anything with your insurance company or sign any paperwork, get the facts and the help you need to get the money you truly deserve after an accident.
