Left Turn Into Oncoming Traffic

By: Fry | Goehring

An automobile collision can happen quickly, leaving little or no time to react. One common scenario is when a car makes a left turn into oncoming traffic. The driver attempts to run through a traffic signal, or fails to notice that traffic in front of him prevents him from getting his vehicle clear of oncoming traffic.


If you have been injured in an automobile accident, establishing right-of-way is an important determining factor in deciding whether you are due compensation under Georgia law. In the aftermath of an injury accident, you may not be certain of all the details or whether you have the right to sue under the circumstances.

In a post-traumatic state following a car crash, it’s understandable that you may be tempted to just leave it to the insurance companies to sort out. That’s not generally advisable, however, since insurance coverage typically doesn’t cover everything you’re faced with after a wreck. You could be left with out-of-pocket expenses and lost income because someone else made a left turn into oncoming traffic. Insurance coverage likely won’t even pay 100% of your medical bills, much less any lost wages resulting from your injuries.


Insurance providers typically want to settle claims quickly, and too often that leaves the insured settling for much less than the fair compensation they may be due. Your best recourse for protecting your rights after an auto collision in Atlanta is to get competent legal representation.

An experienced personal injury trial attorney can advise you whether you are due compensation for pain and suffering. You deserve competent and compassionate aid on behalf of your rights and expert counsel to answer all your questions.
