Risks Of Left Turn Accidents In North Miami Beach And Florida

Left turns can be extremely risky because they require motorists to cross other lanes of traffic. These types of accidents carry many risks, including the risk of:

  • Broadside collisions
  • Head-on collisions
  • Rear end shunt crashes
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Serious injury
  • Intersection accidents
  • Chain reaction accidents

The force of impact in these types of collisions can also be severe and can cause life-threatening or life-altering injury.

Understanding Who Caused Your Left Turn Collision

After a serious traffic accident, it is common to have questions about exactly who has caused the accident and what led to the collision in the first place. While it is possible that law enforcement will investigate the cause of the accident and the insurance company will send insurance adjusters to conduct their own investigation, a personal injury attorney representing you can also investigate your claims and the accident and can gather evidence that can support your case.

Depending on the findings, you may find that there are multiple liable parties in your collision, including:

  • The municipality where the accident took place
  • The at-fault driver
  • Vehicle manufacturers
  • The construction company working in the area
  • The construction company responsible for maintaining the roads

Who is liable will depend on exactly what led to the accident and the first place. If mechanical failure contributed to your accident, for example, a vehicle manufacturer may be partly liable. If poor signage or poor road design contributed to the collision, it is likely that the municipality where the accident took place or the construction company responsible for maintaining the road will be held partly liable.

A personal injury attorney can investigate the causes of the accident and can uncover all possible liable parties in your case. This is an important step in the legal claim process since finding all liable parties is important for justice and can also improve your chances of getting fair compensation for your injuries.
