Who Is At Fault for Atlanta Car Accidents Caused by Left-Hand Turns Across Traffic?

Have you ever thought who is at fault for an accident involving a driver making a left-hand turn across traffic?

The driver making the left-hand turn across traffic is usually the one at fault for a car accident. As the driver, he/she is responsible for completing a safe turn and taking precautions to avoid a collision. Sometimes, there are circumstances where the driver making the left-hand turn is not the driver at fault.

The Atlanta car accident attorneys at Kalka & Baer note these specific circumstances as ones where the left-hand turn driver might not be at fault…

  • If the oncoming driver is excessively speeding or driving aggressively
  • If the oncoming driver ran a red light
  • If something unexpected happened between the driver decided it was safe to turn and when he/she actually turned


If one of these kinds of car accidents happened to you, you need a legal advocate on your side. It can be difficult to prove the reasons why the other driver was at fault. And, the last thing you want to be doing while recovering from a car crash is to fight a negligence battle between you and the other driver.

The Kalka & Baer law firm has represented many clients after Atlanta car crashes. Our lawyers can find evidence like intersection cameras, eyewitnesses, and more to help prove the other driver’s negligence.
