In most cases, if a car coming in the opposite direction makes a left turn in front of you and causes an accident, the law will hold that party liable for the accident and any injuries and damages sustained in the accident.
There are a few exceptions to this rule:
- Speeding - if the driver going straight was speeding, the driver turning left may not be held accountable.
- Red Lights - if the driver going straight ran a red light, he or she may not be able to hold the other driver liable.
- Unexpected Instances - if something unexpected forced the driver turning left to make a sudden stop, he or she may not be liable for the accident.
Because it's difficult to make judgment calls on an accident without examining all facts, police reports and application laws, you'll want to speak with a Louisville personal injury attorney to discuss the specifics of your case. An attorney will help determine if the other party should be held liable, then prepare a solid claim for your Louisville motorcycle accident.
