The Driver Ran a Red Light and My Doctor Said I Need Surgery, What Do I Do Now?

Video Transcription:
Drivers who run a red light cause more serious injuries in Florida than any other type of an accident. If you think about it, it's because both cars are moving and even two cars moving at 25 mph have a big impact when they collide. But more frequently the cars are moving at 35 or 45 mph on a three or four lane road and you can imagine the tremendous velocity that occurs when these two cars collide.

So, it's pretty common for someone to come out of this type of an accident with serious injury requiring surgeries. The car who caused the accident, their insurance company that insures that driver is responsible for all of the harm that that driver has caused. Medical expenses that aren't covered by No Fault, future medical needs, pain, suffering, disability, rehabilitation, the ability to earn a living now and in the future will all be covered. So their insurance company will be looked to as the primary source to pay all of the harm that driver has caused in running that red light.
