What Happens In A Right Turn Car Accident?
Often, when a right turn car accident occurs, a person gets in a car crash because they make a right turn into traffic without enough time or space between cars to make the turn successfully. This can happen when someone underestimates the amount of space they need to make the turn, how much time it will take them to complete it or if they are distracted by something like texting and driving.
If you’ve been in a right turn car accident don’t hesitate to document the scene, talk to witnesses and collect their information, exchange insurance information with the other driver, seek medical attention immediately and file a claim with your auto insurance company.
Who Is At Fault In A Right Turn Car Accident?
If you don’t have the right of way, and choose to make a turn that leads to a right turn car accident, you may end up with more than just car accident injuries. You may be considered at fault.
If a driver fails to make a correct assessment about the time required to maneuver safely into the lane from a turn, they are likely at fault, but in some instances may share fault with another driver involved in the car crash.
In no fault states, like Florida, fault can be assessed from a car accident scene, but isn’t taken into account when it comes to insurance billing and payments. All parties involved pay equally for damage and medical claims through the insurance company.
In other scenarios, where fault is tied to compensation, a driver must be found less than 50 percent at fault in order to seek compensation from a claim and the compensation is tied to the percentage of fault assessed.

When Is The Fault Party Liable In A Right Turn Accident?
If you are seeking compensation for a car accident, you may be considered a fault party in some states if you failed to yield to oncoming traffic that has the right of way. Even if an oncoming car was driving over the speed limit, your failure to yield at a right turn can make you a fault party.
In Texas, special circumstances sometimes exist for right turn intersections to help people avoid right turn car accidents. In these intersections, a right turn may have a green light signal associated with it, and anyone making the turn when the light isn’t green would be considered a fault party.
Personal Injury Protection For Right Turn Crashes
In many states, fault can impact whether or not you are able to be compensated for your claim. But that doesn’t stop you from incurring personal injury and medical expenses from a right turn car crash. If you’ve been injured in a right turn car accident, it’s important you seek medical attention right away.
In Florida, Personal Injury Protection insurance is required on all cars and trucks belonging to residents of the state. Commonly known as PIP insurance, it helps you cover medical expenses, lost wages and associated funeral costs from personal injury and wrongful death no matter who is at fault in your right turn accident.

Filing A Claim After A Right Turn Collision
If you’ve had a right turn collision, you may be wondering what to do next. First things first, it’s important to document the scene of the accident.
If you have a cell phone and you are able to, use it to take pictures at the scene. Also, speak to any witnesses who stopped to help, safely off of the road, of course. Get their statements and information.
Next, get yourself to a medical professional as soon as possible. You want to be seen by someone who can understand the full extent of your injuries and tell you what to look for in case they get worse.
Finally, call your auto insurance company and make a claim. Speak to a representative who will help you through the process. Submit your documented accident and injuries, and wait for an insurance adjuster, who works for your insurer, to make a determination.
If you believe your insurance adjuster made a determination in bad faith, contact Florin|Roebig.
