Tupelo Left Turn Accidents

Motor Vehicle Wreck Lawyers Assisting Injured Victims in the Tupelo Area

Tupelo, Mississippi, has safety laws and ordinances to regulate traffic, prevent motor vehicle collisions, and ensure the safety of drivers, passengers, and pedestrians. Unfortunately, many drivers fail to obey these implemented laws, such as the ones regarding right-of-way. Left turn accidents often occur when drivers are turning left but fail to yield the right-of-way to oncoming traffic. If you or a loved one has been injured due to another driver making an improper left turn, you should call the Tupelo car accident attorneys of Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz. Comprised of more than 30 lawyers and over 120 staff members, we are a large regional personal injury law firm that has represented injured people throughout the Mid-South for more than 30 years. To date, our firm has recovered damages in excess of $1.5 billion for our clients.

Consequences of Left Turn Accidents

An example of a left turn accident would be if you were driving through the intersection of North Gloster Street and Jackson Street when another driver coming from the opposite direction tried to make a left turn but failed to yield the right-of-way to you, resulting in a collision from which you sustained critical injuries. The injuries you can receive from the accident may include head trauma, whiplash, lacerations, spinal cord injuries, skull fractures, and broken bones – all of which can contribute to the accumulation of medical bills and other out of pocket expenses.

When seeking compensation for your injuries and losses, you will likely have to establish the other driver’s negligence by proving that the other driver owed you a duty of reasonable care, breached that duty, and caused you to sustain injuries as a result. This can be done by documenting evidence from the accident scene, obtaining a hardcopy of the police report regarding the accident, and gathering the names, contact information, and testimonies of witnesses at the scene of the wreck. A skilled car accident lawyer in the Tupelo area can assist you in procuring additional evidence to substantiate your claim.

The focus can shift to damages once liability has been established. Depending on the severity and nature of your losses and injuries, you may be entitled to compensatory damages, which can typically be broken down into two categories: economic damages and non-economic damages. The former can compensate for monetary losses, including lost wages, medical bills, and other out-of-pocket expenses that stem from the accident. Non-economic damages, on the other hand, attempt to quantify and compensate for intangible losses, such as pain and suffering, disfigurement, loss of consortium, and loss of enjoyment of life.
