Can I sue a driver that ran a red light and caused a Michigan auto accident?

Yes, you can sue a driver that ran a red light and caused a Michigan auto accident. Running red light accidents are a common cause of serious injury because these crashes often take place at high speed.  Under Michigan statute, an injured car accident victim can sue the negligent driver that ran the red light and caused the auto accident.  These Michigan statutes include:

  • Failing to obey the instructions of the traffic control signal located at the aforesaid intersection which did then and there show red against the passage of the drive, in violation of Mich. Comp. Laws Ann. §257.612.
  • Failing to yield right-of-way to the vehicle of the plaintiff which was then and there lawfully within the intersection, in violation of Mich. Comp. Laws Ann. §257.612.
