There are always many factors that come into play in terms of determining who’s at fault in a car accident, and when it comes to left-hand turn accidents there tends to be a false assumption that the driver conducting the left-hand turn is always at fault.
Of course this isn’t always the case because all circumstances are different, but there still is a predominant legal misconception within these scenarios because left-hand turns typically require drivers to yield the right of way. It’s always perfectly reasonable to expect drivers making left-hand turns to yield to oncoming traffic, but the liability within some of these types of accidents is sometimes more difficult to determine than most would initially think.
We are proud to support our clients through these confusing personal injury cases, and we fully understand how difficult it can be to prove that the other driver not making a left turn was at fault in these types of scenarios. So what we’ve done in this article is provide you with everything you need to know in terms of determining fault if you find yourself involved in a left-hand turn accident by making the turn or driving straight.
As always, if you have any questions for us don’t hesitate to contact us for a free consultation so we can better understand your case and start making the initial steps towards legal action.
The driver who is trying to make a left-hand turn must always yield to other vehicles, unless the left-turning vehicle has the right of way (green arrow). For the most part, drivers must always properly wait to make left turns until there is no oncoming traffic, or the traffic is at least a safe distance away to allow for the left turn.
It’s also very important for left-turn drivers to remember that they must always wait for cyclists and pedestrians to cross a street or crosswalk safely, but there are some liability differences when a cyclist or pedestrian illegally enters a crosswalk and the driver doesn’t have enough time to stop.
It’s never legal for a left-hand turning driver to cut off oncoming traffic, and this is always a very risky maneuver that does many times lead to collisions. There are many left-hand turn accidents that occur in places where a stoplight isn’t present, and in these places it’s always the responsibility of the left-turning driver to take the necessary precautions before initiating the turn. The oncoming traffic always has the right of way in these situations, which is why left-turning drivers are often initially deemed at fault for these types of accidents.
There are instances in which the left-turning driver isn’t liable for the accident’s occurrence, and this typically is when the driver making the left turn has the right of way. Some examples of this can be when a green left turn arrow is provided, or when a driver runs a red light and impacts the car making the left turn.
Other drivers besides the left-turning driver may be liable for the accident if they are found to be rolling through stop signs, texting and driving, or any other kind of distracted driving. But in legal terms, the liability of these types of accidents will come down to the right of way, each driver’s duties on the road, and what a reasonable and prudent driver would have done in the same type of scenario.
There are also liability situations in which the other driver not making the turn simply was acting negligently or driving recklessly. An example of this would be if the other driver was speeding well over the speed limit and made it difficult for the left-turning driver to gauge the safety of their impending turn.
Unexpected circumstances are always at play when it comes to causing left-turning drivers to swerve or come to a stop while executing their turn, and in certain situations these third parties can be found liable for the accident’s occurrence.
If the other driver going straight was intoxicated or negligent in any way then this could also be a factor in determining at least partial fault for the accident.
No matter which side of the table you’re on in these scenarios, it’s crucial for everyone to know how to prove fault within left-turn accident lawsuits. This can include physical evidence like the debris that’s left on the road after the accident, the resting positions of each vehicle after the crash, and any kind of camera footage that may be helpful in determining the liability of what happened. There’s no doubt about it that collecting this type of evidence is somewhat difficult, especially in more rural areas where traffic cameras aren’t available.
Once any kind of left-hand turn accident occurs, it’s always important to call the police immediately and have them come conduct an official accident report. If you’re capable of doing so, it’s also a good idea to take pictures of the accident scene and your injuries as soon as possible. The timeliness of these pictures is crucial because the police may be required to move the crashed vehicles out of the street, which could potentially destroy valuable evidence that would help your case.
No matter what, you should always reach out to one of our attorneys as soon as possible when you’re involved in a left-hand turn accident. By going through our free consultation process we’ll be able to help determine your best course of legal action and begin building a strategy that will help you prove that the other driver was at fault for the damages done to you and your passengers.
Legal jargon can be confusing for everyone, and torts and crimes are technical terms in the legal world that are often misunderstood and improperly overlapped with one another. Tort and criminal law are especially difficult to distinguish from one another, so in this article we are setting the record straight and providing you with everything you need to know about both legal fields.
Here are the fundamentals:
By understanding the basic principles associated with each field of law, you’ll be able to have a much clearer understanding between the differences of torts and crimes, so let’s dig deeper…
A tort is a private breach of someone else’s civil rights, and in the legal world a tort is what occurs when someone’s negligence directly causes damage to a person and/or their property. There are all types of torts, but every tort directly results in the injury to a person or damage to a person’s property.
Negligence is one of the most common causes of torts, but there are distinct differences between unintentional and intentional torts. An example of an unintentional tort would be someone being injured by a faulty product or someone’s pet, while an intentional tort could comprise of something like defamation of character or battery. Typically, the injured party will sue the tortfeasor (person who committed a tort) for damages to a person’s health or their property that was derived from the tortfeasor’s negligent behavior.
Intentional torts are often confused with crimes, and this is probably because these types of torts will coincide with criminal behavior. But if an injured individual decides to sue for compensation purposes, then the case is brought to a civil court (as opposed to criminal court) and the criminal case becomes a tort. Some of the best examples of torts can be seen within all aspects of personal injury law, including car accidents, medical malpractice, product liability, workplace accidents and essentially all of our many practice areas.
One example of a tort being involved with criminal activity is when a drunk driver causes bodily harm and property damage to another individual involved in an accident. In this situation, the crime is the drinking and driving and the tort is the injury sustained by the victim.
The following are the main reasons why torts are illegal:
The generic definition of a crime is any kind of wrongdoing that affects society, and crimes are always identified via a state’s legal system and prosecuted accordingly to a state’s laws and criminal court procedures. In many personal injury situations, an injured party is technically classified as the society and the criminal laws broken were ultimately set up to protect members of society.
Crimes are always brought to justice within criminal courts of law, and the punishment that is given to the criminal will fit the structure that was set up by the state’s criminal laws. Crimes are always punishable acts that go against the laws that are established to keep peace and the protection of all people.
The following are the main reasons why crimes are illegal acts:
We are a team of Silver Spring, Bowie, College Park, Landover and Upper Marlboro Injury & Accident Attorneys who have become experts within ever aspect of personal injury law, and it’s through our multiple decades of combined experience representing our clients that we’ve been able to successfully distinguish the primary differences between torts and crimes. The three main differences include the following:
A tort is something that is classified as a wrongdoing against an individual, while a crime is classified as an illegal act that affects the entire social order our communities live within.
Torts can be unintentional, and many times they involve accidents caused by negligence. This negligence certainly can still cause serious damage to the accident victim(s), which is why torts are tried in civil court and compensation is metered out based on the victim’s losses due to damages and the measure of wrongs involved with the tort.
A crime is an intentional, planned wrongdoing that affects society. There are situations in which an innocent individual may suffer during criminal activities, but usually crimes are a direct act against the law that aim to gain in some way from the specific wrongdoing.
The ways in which torts and crimes affect society differ, but the impact is always going to be negative no matter what the circumstances are.
A tort is something that ultimately distresses the well being of another individual who then seeks out legal action and other forms of compensation.
A crime affects society on a more grand scale, and the criminal laws established within any given state will make certain that criminals are adequately punished for their committed crimes.
There are situations in which torts and crimes coincide with each other within the same criminal activity, and this predominately entails an individual being injured on the scene of a crime due to the criminal’s illegal activity.

If you or a loved one has suffered some kind of significant harm in an accident that involved someone else’s obvious negligence, then it might not be so difficult to answer this article’s question. However, as we all know very well. there are many situations in which deciphering the validity of a personal injury case isn’t so easy.
If you’re in the process of trying to figure out if you have a serious personal injury case that justifies going through insurance claim filing and a potential civil court lawsuit, then there are many factors that you should keep in mind while going about your initial legal strategy decisions.
In this article we’ll go over the fundamentals of what coincides with a personal injury lawsuit, the four requirements for a valid personal injury case, other factors that strengthen these types of lawsuits, and the reasons why your personal injury case may potentially fail.
Everything in this article is crucial to take into consideration as you are figuring out what you can do about a specific injury/accident that occurred, and our team of attorneys is always here to assist you through all the hoops and bounds associated with personal injury law.
When you file a personal injury claim, you are essentially going through the legal process of enforcing you and your loved ones’ rights towards receiving your rightful compensation for any monetary damages a specific injury may have caused you.
In most situations, you’ll be seeking your rightful compensation from the insurance company of the responsible party in your personal injury case, and this is because most people have insurance policies that protect them for these exact types of scenarios. Some of the more common personal injury claims include the following:
There are many different types of injuries that can take place within a personal injury case, and this also includes a lot of different types of compensation to cover your losses. Some of the common types of re-compensation in personal injury law go towards:
In order to know if you truly have a personal injury case, you’ll need to examine the overall strength of your case, including your general rights to recover the types of compensation we listed above. It’s crucial to be able to undoubtedly prove the essential elements that are involved with every personal injury case, which usually will require the use of verified evidence and testimonies to establish the following four requirements:
These other two factors may not be considered part of the four essential elements of a personal injury claim, but they still are serious factors that you should be aware of when it comes to your overall chances of success. These factors include:
Every state is going to have different restrictions in terms of the amount of time you have to file a lawsuit in court after the date of the accident. If you do not initiate your personal injury case prior to your state’s deadline, then you are not eligible to recover compensation.
This law will generally affect the overall amount of monetary damages you’ll be able to receive within your personal injury case. This rule will ultimately focus on your own conduct and whether your actions played a role in contributing to your injuries. This essentially means that if you had any partial fault for creating the injury-inducing situation, then your compensation will be reduced by the percentage of fault a judge will attach to your actions.
Maryland, DC and the Greater Virginia Area just so happen to be three of a handful of jurisdictions that uphold contributory negligence laws, which essentially state that a personal injury victim forfeits their rights to compensation if they are found to be partially at fault for an accident’s occurrence. So what’s important to know here is that an insurance company representing an at-fault driver/individual can attempt to prove how a plaintiff in a personal injury case was in any way responsible for an accident, and essentially nullify your rights to compensation.
There have been several proposed changes to this law in Maryland to more lenient comparative negligence rules, but with contributory negligence currently remaining prevalent it becomes even more crucial to utilize the counsel of expert personal injury attorneys to help you prove that the at-fault driver was completely responsible for the accident.
It’s important to measure the overall strength of personal injury cases by also assessing the potential weaknesses that may be involved. There are several different types of flaws that can assist insurance companies in denying your injury claim.
So, you may be putting your case and yourself at a disadvantage if you:

It’s finally summer, which means you and your family will have plans to have days full of fun and a ton of sunshine. You’ll have endless reasons to get in the car and drive to fun places like the beach and mountains to get the lasting experiences that summer is all about!
During the winter, we tend to pack our cars with equipment that assists with inclement weather, but just because the summer months provide beautiful weather doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be packing your cars with at least as much care. There is a whole array of summer essentials that everyone should have packed in their cars, in order to assure you and your family are fully prepared to make the most of vacations and regular days during summer break.
You’ll, of course, have your own personal list of specific items that align with your athletic and creative interests, but here is our list of car essentials to keep your summers rolling smoothly!
Everyone knows how important it is to put on sunscreen prior to going outside, but many people forget to regularly reapply throughout the course of the day. This is why it’s always crucial to keep sunscreen readily available for you and your family in your car.
Hats are also always going to be something you’ll want to keep in your car during the summer, and it’s also a good idea to keep enough hats for everyone in the family so you’ll all be ready when the sun is scorching!
We recommend having at least two pairs of sunglasses ready to go, one for the car and one for when you’re simply walking about. It’s never fun to have to look around for your glasses when you’re getting ready to go for a drive, and squinting against the sun’s glare is an easy way to induce a headache, or worse, cause an accident.
You know it is summer when you see countless cars parked with massive window shades in their front windshields, and these items are crucial in terms of blocking out unnecessary sun that can severely heat up a car during the day. Window shades also make a big difference in terms of the overall time it takes for a car to cool off once you’re ready to start driving.
You’re going to want these items in your car during all seasons, but it makes a lot of sense to avoid getting a cold that could keep you away from any type of summer fun too.
Traveling with reusable water bottles is a lot safer than keeping a plastic water bottle around and it’s always clutch to be able to get a free re-fill of water at fountains wherever you end up going. Staying hydrated while out on the road during the summer is crucial for you and the whole family, so keeping water bottles in the car will help you ensure no one goes too long without refreshments.
Summer always leads to more outdoor play, and more cuts and injuries. This is why we recommend having a few single-use ice packs in your glove compartment ready to go just in case one of your kids takes a tumble. Put in some Band-Aids and antiseptic ointment and you’ll be ready for whatever trips and scrapes may unfortunately happen!
Everyone needs to go grocery shopping no matter what time of year it is, but in the summer your frozen foods can be at risk in between the store and your house. That’s why utilizing insulated grocery bags can make a huge difference during the summer months, and you should keep them around in your car for other purposes besides shopping, like upping your picnic and park days!
You and your kids are inevitably going to get hungry while riding around in your car, which is why it’s important to keep snacks in your car year-round. In the summer months you’ll have to think about how well your snacks will stand up to the inevitable heat, which is why choosing heat resistant snacks is so important.
These snacks include things like Wheat Thins, granola bars, nuts, Cheez-its, Graham crackers and much more. Having a personal car stash of snacks will always go a long way, especially when you’re trying to do some longer day trips and extended road trips to your favorite destinations!
You’re always going to have some spills happen when you have kids in your car no matter what time of year it is, and an added bonus of keeping a roll of paper towels in your car is that they can double as a pillow or even extra lumbar support when needed!
Weather can always be somewhat unpredictable during the summer months with scattered thunderstorms and afternoon showers randomly rolling through on any given day. An umbrella is definitely a must-have car item during the summer.
Mosquitoes are always going to be at least somewhat of an issue during the summer months no matter where you live, so it’s always crucial to keep some insect repellant in your car. This is especially the case if you enjoy outdoor activities in more rural areas, like hiking and camping.
We also recommend keeping some hydrocortisone anti-itch cream in your car just in case you do get bitten up!
Everything is going to melt faster during the summer months, which can lead to more car spills. We always recommend keeping some moist cleaning wipes in your car at all times so you can help keep your interior stain-free from those inevitable accidents that will happen.
Every parent understands how useful Ziploc bags can be for a whole variety of purposes. You can put snacks, change, trash, and even keep wet things off of seats. So, when it comes down to it, having Ziploc bags in your car can always be useful!
These summer car items are simply for being ready to have some fun, because if you have items like shorts, towels, a zip-up blanket and swimsuits in your trunk then you’re inevitably going to be ready when the right moment strikes and you want to get a little bit spontaneous. So we recommend keeping some items in your car that help you be more ready to get outside and get a tan, because it’s summer and you deserve some fun in the sun!
We saved the best and most important for last, and although you should keep a safety bag in your car all year long it’s important to replenish all your supplies at the beginning of each season. You’ll want to include items like
We understand how important it is to be as prepared as possible whenever you get behind the wheel, and if you have any other summer essentials to add to this list feel free to leave a comment below.
