Left Turn Collisions

Many situations created by drivers on the road present imminent danger to everyone else out there. They cause severe injuries or death and major financial costs. One area of driving that is constantly fraught with risk involves left-hand turns. Left turn accidents, 99% of them, usually put the turning driver at fault, as straight-through drivers are almost always guaranteed the right of way at intersections. Our North Carolina and South Carolina car accident lawyers have handled plenty of crashes involving left turns, and we may be able to help you.

Accidents which implicate the left-turning driver can take many forms, from a fender bender to a full-scale head-on or broadside impact. The angles created in scenarios where one vehicle negligently takes a turn expose all parties present to potentially increased force of impact at weak points in an automobile’s anatomy. This can make such accidents exceptionally destructive or life-threatening.

If you've been injured in a crash caused by a negligent driver making a left turn you know just how much pain and concern this situation can cause. Drivers have to know and follow the rules, and if someone failing to do so has caused you pain, you may be entitled to compensation for injuries and pain and suffering.

North Carolina and South Carolina Car Accident Laws Are Not The Same

The North Carolina and South Carolina car accident lawyers at Grimes Teich Anderson have extensive experience in representing injured victims in both states where the laws may differ. For example, North Carolina is a “contributory negligence” state, meaning that if you contributed in any way to the accident that harmed you, your claims to the insurance company or the at-fault party could be denied. South Carolina is a “comparative negligence” state, meaning that as long as you were not more responsible for your accident than the party deemed at-fault, you may be able to collect financial benefits to cover your accident-related costs. Our accident lawyers are knowledgable and experienced with the laws in both states.

From medical expenses and lost wages to vehicle repairs and legal fees, you will have costs associated with your accident that you probably were not expecting and you may not be able to pay. Grimes Teich Anderson is here for that very reason. We know how hard it can be to get over an accident from the pain and anguish alone before costs are even considered. We fight to protect the rights of car accident victims injured in left hand turns in North Carolina and South Carolina. People who need the compensation they may deserve as a result of their injuries; we never represent the insurance companies who seek to deny claims to victims like you. We hope you’ll consider us as the firm you trust to protect your rights and get you the maximum benefits that your situation allows.
