Who is liable in a left turn accident?

Most drivers in Kentucky will have experienced a car accident at some point in their lives, whether they were involved in the incident or simply passing by it. These events can be highly traumatic for all concerned, resulting in emotional distress, physical injury and costly damage to vehicles. In the worst cases they can even cost lives.

Sadly, no matter how careful you are as a driver, there is still a chance that you could get caught up in a car accident. It only takes one person on the road to make a mistake for everyone else to be put at risk. It is a difficult thing to think about, but unfortunately it is a very common occurrence.

If you are harmed in an accident or your vehicle is damaged, you may wonder how you are going to cover the costs. However, you might be able to make a claim against the person responsible. If they are found liable, then the claim should count against their insurance.

Of course, proving liability is not always easy. However, as this article on car crashes explains, there are some cases in which fault is generally clear cut. For example, in the case of a left turn accident, it is usually deemed to be the fault of whichever vehicle was in the process of turning left.

Still, every case is different, so you may benefit from the support of an attorney. He or she can evaluate the circumstances of the crash and may be able to help ensure that you get the most out of your claim and receive the compensation you deserve.
