Left-Hand Turns are a frequent cause of accidents. A driver making a left-hand turn must pay attention to several things at once, which can make left-hand turns more dangerous.
An inordinate percentage of auto accidents occur at intersections. Some of these accidents are caused by negligent drivers who run stoplights and stop signs. Many are head-on and side-impact collisions, and often result in serious injury. Pedestrian accidents also often occur at intersections, and bus and truck drivers also often cause accidents when maneuvering at intersections.
Side-impact accidents, which are also commonly referred to as T-bone accidents rank among the most dangerous types of motor vehicle crashes. Vehicle occupants are highly vulnerable to cars and trucks striking from the side. Also, air bags don’t always inflate or provide adequate protection in T-bone crashes.
Head-on collisions tend to result in especially catastrophic injuries, and therefore the need for extremely expensive medical care, including in-home care and modified vehicles. Additionally, we feel that a diminished quality of life should result in the highest possible compensation.
We have also represented numerous victims of rear-end collisions. Every responsible and experienced driver has safely slowed or stopped while approaching slowing or stalled traffic on freeways, in intersections, at red lights and stop signs and in numerous other situations. It can be frustrating, then, to experience serious injuries due to a driver’s failure to avoid rear impact
Pileups And Multivehicle Accidents
Vehicles that are top heavy, such as an SUV, van or a pickup truck, can rollover in a motor vehicle accident. Additionally, reckless driving, excessive speeding or drunk driving, even in a coupe or sedan can cause a car to flip over on impact.
