Left Turn Accidents Occur as a Result of Failure To Yield
The Official Code of Georgia Annotated (O.C.G.A.) § 40-6-71 is clear. A vehicle turning left must yield the right of way to any oncoming traffic before turning.
When a driver fails to yield the right of way during a left turn, they may turn in front of another vehicle and cause a collision. This collision can happen at a green light or in an intersection when there is no traffic signal for either driver. It can also occur when the driver turning left is turning into a driveway, alley, parking lot, or another private drive.
Left turn accidents usually cause side-impact collisions, which can be especially dangerous for the occupants of the vehicle hit broadside. Injuries may be more severe in these cases because there is less material to absorb the forces of the accident in a door than, say, in the front or rear end.
If you suffered injuries in a collision that occurred because another driver failed to yield, a member of our team from Bader Scott Injury Lawyers will discuss your case with you for free.

Let Bader Scott Injury Lawyers Handle Your Roswell Car Accident Case
A Roswell left turn accident lawyer from Bader Scott Injury Lawyers can represent you if another driver caused your Fulton County car accident, and there is evidence to support your case. We know how to navigate the process to prove the allegations against the other driver, document your losses, and seek a fair payout. Reach out to us so we can go to work for you right away if you qualify.
Building a Case and Protecting Your Rights
If another driver turned left in front of you and caused your Roswell accident, you have a right to seek compensation through their insurance coverage or a civil suit. We will protect this right by communicating with the insurance company, investigating your accident and gathering evidence to support your case, and representing you throughout the process.
We know the kind of evidence commonly used to prove these cases and have the resources to build a case to demonstrate your losses.
Minimizing the Effects of Comparative Negligence
All too often, the defendant or their insurance company tries to lay the blame on the victim for their accident injuries. When this occurs, we will help to fight the allegation or minimize the effect it has on your payout. As long as the majority of the liability is on the other driver, O.C.G.A. § 51-11-7 still allows you to recover damages.
Ways to Recover Compensation
There are two ways we can recover compensation for our clients who suffered injuries in a north Fulton County left turn accident:
- File an insurance claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance provider
- File a civil lawsuit in a Fulton County court
In most cases, it is possible to reach a settlement without taking legal action. Most car accident cases never go to court. However, when this is needed, we will move forward with a civil case against the at-fault driver.
Time Limits on Personal Injury Cases
There are time limits on how much time we have to file a lawsuit in your case if this is needed. However, since we need to pursue an insurance claim first, it takes time to learn if this will be necessary. Under O.C.G.A § 9-3-33, we have two years to file paperwork in a civil court before you likely lose the right to do so.
Call Bader Scott Injury Lawyers as soon as possible after your injuries begin to heal. We can help you understand your case and your options for holding the at-fault driver responsible. You can reach us today at (678) 562-5595.
