Building a Hoover Left-Turn Accident Case
Our Morris Bart law office attorneys know how to develop a case based on a left-turn accident. We need to investigate the facts of the case and gather evidence to show which driver acted negligently. This is the only way to determine who caused a Hoover intersection crash. The evidence often available in these cases includes:
- The accident report filed by law enforcement officers
- Eyewitness interviews
- Photos and videos of the crash
- Physical evidence
- Accident reconstruction
- An accident scene survey
- Relevant medical records
- Documentation of damages
While the Transportation Research Board published a study showing five types of left-hand accidents, determining who is liable for these crashes comes down to understanding the right of way. One driver had the right of way in these crashes. Commonly, a driver will fail to yield the right of way when turning left. An oncoming vehicle cannot stop in time and slams into them. When this occurs, the left-turning vehicle’s driver causes the crash.
In other cases, a driver will turn left at a green arrow. They have the right of way. Another driver runs the red light and hits them. When this occurs, the driver who ran the light causes the crash. Eyewitness statements, crash videos, and accident reconstruction are often crucial in these cases. The facts of the case matter, and our attorneys know how to discover, analyze, and document them to support our client’s claim or civil suit.
Damages Recoverable in a Hoover Traffic Accident Claim or Lawsuit
Our Hoover left-turn accident attorney identifies our client’s expenses and losses, seeking compensation based on the costs they experienced. This is how we get justice in these cases. We need to determine a fair settlement range for the case before we demand compensation from the insurer and attempt to negotiate a payout. We can also present the evidence we gather at trial to show the jury what our client lost because of the crash.
The recoverable damages in these cases vary from case to case. However, they include many of the same types of expenses and losses. This could include:
- Medical treatment and related expenses to date
- Future treatment expenses or ongoing care costs
- Income losses from time missed working
- Reduced earning capacity if you cannot go back to your previous work
- Car repair or replacement
- Related expenses
- Pain and suffering damages
When a victim dies from crash injuries, our attorneys may seek punitivewrongful death damages as allowed under Ala. Code § 6-5-410.
How Our Attorneys Handle a Hoover Left-Turn Accident Case
Most traffic accident cases settle outside of court. We can often file a claim and negotiate a payout for our clients, including those hurt in left-turn crashes. However, sometimes we need to sue the negligent driver and navigate the legal process to prepare the case for trial.
Even after we sue, we can often negotiate a fair settlement in these cases. Our ability to get a fair payout sometimes increases following filing a lawsuit. If necessary, we will take the case to a jury trial. When this occurs, we present the evidence to the jury and ask them to award fair compensation to our client. This could result in a verdict and court award in the client’s favor.
Alabama law limits how long we can wait to sue in a left-turn accident. The statute of limitations on these cases under Ala. Code § 6-2-38 is generally two years after the crash date. Exceptions apply and could give you less time. Connect with our team as soon as your injuries allow to ensure you do not miss critical deadlines.
