Louisiana Left Turn Accident Lawyer

Louisiana Left Turn Accident Lawyer

In a Louisiana car accident where one car makes a left turn in front of another, the car that is turning is usually at fault. Louisiana law states that a car making a left turn must wait until it can completely make a turn before moving toward oncoming traffic.

Left Turn Exceptions in Louisiana

There are a few exceptions to the left turn liability rule:

  • If the car going straight runs a red light; OR
  • If the car going straight is speeding, they are the liable party.

Both of those scenarios are quite difficult to prove and more often than not, the party who made the left turn will still be blamed. If something unexpected happens that forces the car making the left turn to stop or even slow down, the driver may not be at fault, but these instances are rare.

Remember, it is vital that you document everything that happened during your car accident as best you can while the incident is still fresh in your memory. If there are any witnesses around, be sure to get their names and complete contact information. Their testimony can help prove fault in your Louisiana car accident case.

If you find yourself injured from a Louisiana car accident where another driver made a left turn, it would be in your best interest to consult with an experienced Louisiana personal injury lawyer who can help you determine liability for your accident and explain your legal options.
