Coral Gables Left Turn Collisions

Left turns can be dangerous, since the vehicle making the left turn enters lanes of traffic that already contain other cars, trucks, and other vehicles. These intersection accidents in Coral Gables and Florida often lead to serious collisions, including pedestrian accidents, broadside collisions, and head-on crashes.

If you have been seriously injured by someone making a left turn incorrectly, you may be eligible for compensation that can help you pay for property damage, medical bills, lost income, and more. To find out more and to find out whether you qualify for a legal claim or for insurance negotiation, contact Flaxman Law Group for a free, confidential case assessment.

Making Left Turns Safely

Florida law requires drivers who are making a left turn to take extra precautions to ensure that turns remain safe. Drivers who are making a left turn are expected to check to make sure that they can complete the turn safely. They are also expected to make sure that the vehicles coming towards them stop fully before they cross their lanes as part of the turn. Drivers who fail to take these extra precautions can be held liable if their negligence causes a collision.

Why do Left Turn Accidents in Coral Gables and Florida Happen?

There are many reasons why left turn accidents happen:

  • Drivers do not check the lanes of traffic that they will cross as part of the turn
  • Drivers do not yield right-of-way to other traffic when they are making the turn
  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Cars honking and pressuring drivers to make a left turn even when it is not safe to do so
  • Inadequate signage
  • Malfunctioning traffic lights
  • Road hazards
  • Poor road design
Who is at Fault in Your Collision?

Left turn collisions can be very confusing. It can be difficult to tell exactly who is at fault and it can be difficult to prove that a driver was negligent in making a left turn. Liable parties in your case can include:

  • Another driver
  • The municipality responsible for the road where the accident took place
  • Vehicle manufacturers
  • Private companies or construction companies

It is important to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney in South Florida who understands how various statutes and laws apply to your situation. A good attorney can determine all liable parties and can help you pursue justice and compensation in your situation. An attorney can work with private investigators, accident reconstruction experts, and other professionals to help determine who was responsible for the collision. An attorney can also give you legal advice specific to your situation, so that you make the right decisions about your case.
