Homestead Left Turn Collisions

Left turn collisions can result in serious injuries, and in many cases the driver who is completing the turn is considered to be the at-fault driver because the driver making a left-hand turn is expected to yield right of way. If you have been injured in this type of accident or any traffic accident, you can always contact Flaxman Law Group at any time to arrange for a free, no obligation consultation.

Left Turn Car Accidents In Homestead Tend To Result In Serious Injuries

Left turn collisions are likely to result in serious injuries for a number of reasons:

  • These accidents are likely to result in broad side or t-bone accidents, which can be serious because passengers have no crumple zone to protect them
  • These accidents tend to involve speeding because one driver is impatient, and speeding can make the force of impact and subsequent injuries more severe
  • These accidents tend to occur on busy intersections, where multiple cars may become involved

Injuries that result from broadside left turn collisions tend to include:

  • Head injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Fractures
  • Amputations
  • Disfigurement
  • Facial injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Back injuries
What are the True Costs of Your Car Accident?

No matter what your injuries, keep in mind that severe injuries can be not only painful but can also result in severe financial issues. Even if you have excellent health insurance and car insurance, it is common for insurers to undervalue serious injuries, especially long-term and permanent injuries. Keep in mind that if you have sustained a serious injury, you will face many costs, including:

  • Medication
  • Emergency medical care
  • Visits to specialists
  • Therapy or counseling
  • Rehabilitation
  • Medical care that may not be covered by your health insurance coverage
  • Lost income if you need to lose work
  • Car repairs or replacement of your car
  • Transportation to medical appointments and other appointments
  • Replacement or repairs of any personal property you had in the car at the time of the accident
  • Any medical devices, such as braces and wheelchairs
  • Surgery
  • Long-term medical care
  • At home care
  • Renovation costs if you need to make your home or car accessible as you recover

If someone has caused your injuries through their recklessness, there's no reason why you need to pay for all of these costs out-of-pocket. However, many people tend to underestimate the total cost of their injuries. This is why it is important to consult with a personal injury attorney in Homestead or your community before you make the decision to accept any insurance offer or any other settlement money.

Keep in mind that once you accept money from your insurer or accept a settlement, you may be limiting or eliminating your ability to seek compensation later on, even if the money runs out and you still have substantial bills to pay. A personal action injury attorney has dealt with hundreds or even thousands of cases similar to yours, and they can often accurately explain to you how much your injuries will end up costing you in the long-term.
