Unsafe, Careless, and Reckless Lane Changes Cause Accidents
When a driver acts carelessly or recklessly and does not ensure they are safe to change lanes, accidents may occur. Motorists have a responsibility to remain in their lane until they are certain the adjacent lane is clear of other vehicles. This is codified under O.C.G.A. § 40-6-48.
Under this statute, drivers should not move from their lane until they have “first ascertained that such movement can be made with safety.” They also need to use a turn signal to indicate they plan to change lanes. Any deviation from this may be considered an unsafe lane change.
When a driver changes lanes without making an effort to be safe, they may collide with traffic in adjacent lanes. If this is what you believe caused your accident, there may evidence available to prove their negligence and hold them accountable.
At Bader Scott Injury Lawyers, our team understands what laws pertain to unsafe lane change accidents, as well as the common evidence that may be available to document liability in such a case.
