Legal Rights of Texas Car Accident Victims
The law is quite clear when it comes to establishing fault in car wrecks involving right-of-way violations where one car attempted to make a left-hand turn through an intersection across oncoming traffic. Either the driver trying to turn left must wait until they get a guarded green arrow to make a left-hand turn, or they must yield to traffic coming in the opposite direction and wait until it is safe for them to make their turn.
Some of the most common reasons why at-fault drivers fail to yield or wait until it is clear and safe to make their left-hand turn are that the driver is simply inexperienced, in a rush, they are distracted, drunk, have poor eyesight, or poor perception of oncoming vehicle’s speed or proximity.
