Understanding how Liability Works in an Albuquerque Left Turn Auto Accident
Our roads are governed by right-of-way rules. Many times the right-of-way is dictated by a traffic light, stop sign, or yield sign. Other times the right-of-way is dictated by vehicle and traffic rules that are not displayed on the road, but known by motorists. This includes vehicles coming from a private driveway which must yield to all vehicles already on the roadway, or that all vehicles must yield to an emergency vehicle with its lights and sirens on. Another example is that all vehicles turning left must yield to the right-of-way of other vehicles on the roadway which present an immediate hazard. This is because a left-hand turn is one of the most dangerous maneuvers a motor vehicle can make since one vehicle is crossing over the lane of travel of other vehicles. When a motorist fails to comply with this right-of-way law, it could result in a catastrophic Albuquerque left turn auto accident. This may cause extreme personal injuries and wrongful death.
