Jonesboro Left Turn Accidents

Jonesboro Left Turn Accidents

You may have seen a driver attempting to turn left out of a parking lot and onto a street. If traffic was heavy that day, that driver probably waited at the exit of that parking lot longer than he or she would have liked. By law, that driver had to yield the right of way to the oncoming traffic and only turn left when it was appropriate to do so. Unfortunately, many drivers in that situation do not wait. Instead, they make an improper left turn when it is not safe to turn, which often results in oncoming traffic hitting the side of the turning driver’s vehicle.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a left turn accident caused by another driver making an improper turn, you should contact one of the Jonesboro car accident attorneys of Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz today. We are a large regional personal injury law firm that consists of more than 30 attorneys and over 120 support staff members. For decades, our firm has helped victims of motor vehicle collisions throughout the South.

Car Accidents Caused by Unsafe Left Turns

Left turn collisions can happen for a plethora of reasons in Craighead County. For example, let us say that you are driving on South Gee Street, and up ahead to your right, you see a driver that is leaving Presley’s Drive Inn – located at 917 South Gee Street, Jonesboro, AR 72401 – and preparing to turn left onto South Gee Street. Instead of waiting for an appropriate time to turn left and yielding the right of way to oncoming traffic, the driver guns it and aggressively drives out in front of oncoming traffic in hopes of getting to the other lane. Regrettably, the motorist the other driver pulled out in front of was you, which caused you to collide with the side of his vehicle and bang your head against your steering wheel.

Hitting your head against your steering wheel due to a left turn accident can result in head trauma, and the violent movement of your head and neck from one direction to another can leave you with whiplash. Whether you sustained head trauma and whiplash or some other injury from an auto collision, you should seek medical attention for your injuries at one of several medical facilities in the Jonesboro area. Many victims of car crashes go to NEA Baptist Memorial Hospital, which is located at 4800 East Johnson Avenue, Jonesboro, AR 72401.

Not only is having your injuries tended to by a medical professional important to your well-being, but it is also crucial to your claim of negligence against the other driver. Recovering economic and non-economic damages requires you to establish the negligence of the other driver by proving that he or she owed you a duty of reasonable care, breached it, and caused you to sustain injuries as a result. A car accident attorney in the Jonesboro area can help you validate your claim and inform you of other types of damages to which you may be entitled.
