Left-turn Accident Lawyer Miami, Broward, Palm Beach
Left turns are one of the most common causes of traffic accidents. When approaching an intersection to make a left turn, it can sometimes be difficult if there is no left arrow green light to let you go. Instead, you’ll usually have to deal with a solid green light, flashing yellow light, or no light at all. That is when your judgment will come into play.
The number one reason for left-turn accidents is an error in judgment. If you cannot accurately judge the speed and distance of the oncoming drivers as you attempt to make a left turn, it could result in an accident. The sad thing is that it could be a tragic accident that causes severe injury and property damage to you and the other people involved.

When Do You Need to Hire a Left-turn Accident Lawyer?
According to Florida Statutes 316.122, the driver attempting to turn left at an intersection does not have the right of way when other vehicles are approaching them from the opposite direction. The driver turning left has to yield to the oncoming traffic until it passes them. Failure to yield is a moving violation and will place more blame on the left turning driver in the event of an accident.
Therefore, if a left-turning driver causes you to have an accident, you would have an excellent case to make when filing a personal injury claim. But even if you were the left-turning driver, there may still be a chance to place some liability on the other driver. It all depends on the unique circumstances surrounding the accident.
You should hire a left-turn accident lawyer if you got into an accident involving someone turning left, whether you or another driver was turning left. An experienced lawyer knowledgeable of traffic law will know the best way to defend your injury claim and seek the maximum compensation you’re entitled to receive under Florida law.

How do left-turn accident claims work?
When you have experienced a left-turn accident, you need to contact an attorney for a consultation immediately. They can help you collect evidence and the necessary resources to make a strong left-turn accident claim against the other driver. The strength of your claim depends on their level of negligence and the severity of your injuries.
For example, if the other driver was turning left but failed to yield as you approached them, you will be entitled to a significant amount of compensation from the other driver. Failure to yield is a clear sign of negligence. In addition, a severe injury from the accident, such as a bone fracture, scarring, or disfigurement, could entitle you to more compensation as well.
Once our legal team estimates the value of your claim, we’ll negotiate with the other driver’s insurance company to reach a settlement amount equal to this value. If they don’t agree to settle for that amount, we’ll proceed with a civil action against them on your behalf.
