Left turns can be one of the most dangerous maneuvers that vehicles make. They can be especially dangerous for a number of reasons:
- They put the driver risk of an intersection accident
- They require the driver to cross lanes of traffic with other vehicles in them
- Left turn accidents often involve speeding, which can mean more serious injuries
- Left turn accidents can involve an area where there are multiple types of vehicles and even pedestrians all using the same roadway
- Some drivers are confused about left turn rules and can cause a left turn accident
Left turn accidents are often failure to yield or intersection accidents and can cause a number of serious injuries, including:
- Head injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Spinal cord and back injuries
- Disfigurement and scarring
- Internal injuries
- Fatal injuries
Unfortunately, serious injuries and damages can occur when someone makes a left turn incorrectly. If your loved one have been injured by someone who has made a left turn incorrectly, it is important to consult with an experienced lawyer who specializes in car accident or traffic accident cases. A good attorney will work with an injured plaintiff to help them understand their rights and options. An attorney may also work with engineers and accident reconstruction experts who can break down step-by-step exactly what that led to the accident. This can help build a stronger case for the injured motorist and can increase the chances of getting fair compensation for their injuries.
Even if you have excellent coverage under your medical or car insurance policy, it is important to get legal advice. Your injuries may end up costing more than you realize and you may have more legal options than you think. If you have a strong case, pursuing a civil claim can allow you to seek a larger settlement offer so that you can pay for more of your costs without having to resort to selling assets or dipping into savings. A personal injury attorney can review your options and can even negotiate with defendants or insurance companies to ensure that your best interests are protected.
