Why Left Turns Contribute to Accidents
Making a left turn is a complex event that requires drivers to make split-second decisions about speed, distance, and turning radius. Inexperienced drivers and people with depth perception or impaired reflexes may be at greater risk for making mistakes during a left turn. According to National Public Radio (NPR), a quarter of all pedestrian accidents in the United States are due to left turns.
There are several reasons why turning left increases the risk of a collision:
- Left turns require drivers to cross against oncoming traffic
- Left turns need a wider turning radius
- Drivers can incorrectly estimate the speed and distance of oncoming traffic
- There is not always a designated left turn lane and signal arrow
- There may be decreased visibility and increased “blind spots” during a left turn, depending on the vehicle
You Could Seek Financial Recovery Even if You Made the Left-Turn
There is a misconception that the left-turn driver is solely liable. Traffic accidents can be complicated. A left-turn accident lawyer from D. Miller & Associates, PLLC will carefully evaluate the circumstances of your accident, your injuries, and collect evidence to decide who is liable.
Often there are contributing factors in a left-turn accident that allows you to seek financial recovery regardless of who turned left. These factors include:
- The driver making the left turn had a green arrow
- The other driver ran a red light or stop sign
- The other driver was speeding, driving while intoxicated, or breaking a traffic law in some manner
- There is an inherent and dangerous flaw in the road design or signal mechanism
It is your right to talk to an attorney about seeking recovery after any kind of motor vehicle accident. You do not want to risk losing potential financial recovery, especially if you are faced with a costly and extensive recovery. Please call (713) 850-8600 for a free case evaluation with D. Miller & Associates, PLLC.
Injuries and Damages from a Left-Turn Accident May Be Significant
There are many types of injuries after a left-turn accident. These include:
- Broken or fractured bones
- Lacerations and contusions
- Internal bleeding
- Torn ligaments or muscles
In addition to medical expenses and lost wages, you may have considerable property damage. If your car was struck head-on or broadside, it may not be drivable. This means you must secure alternative transportation while you are getting your vehicle repaired. Some left-turn accidents can total a vehicle.
