The law also requires you to yield to all vehicles approaching from the oncoming lane. Unfortunately, in many cases drivers making a left turn are often considered at fault in a left turn accident, even if they are not.

Left turn accidents lead to serious injuries on Hollywood city streets for a number of reasons:
- These accidents tend to be T-bone or side-swipe accidents, which tend to cause serious passenger injuries
- These accidents tend to occur at busy intersections, where the risk of multiple-car accidents is high
- Speed tends to be a factor in these accidents, as cars speed up to avoid a collision
If you are in a car accident, you are supposed to be protected by your car insurance policy. Car insurance money should help pay for medical costs, lost wages, and other expenses related to an accident. Unfortunately, in many cases, car insurance companies try to settle claims quickly and inexpensively. This may mean giving passengers less than the total amount needed to cover medical bills and other costs. In these situations, is difficult to know what to do. You may feel frightened and alone and you may be unsure how to proceed to ensure that you don't face financial distress or bankruptcy.
If you have been injured in a left turn crash, it is important to consult with a personal injury attorney for just these reasons. Car insurance may not cover the full cost of your injuries, especially if your injuries are permanent or severe. An attorney can help you find other legal options for finding compensation for your injuries.
