Dangers of the Right Turn
In busier metropolitan areas like Atlanta, there are many crosswalks and hundreds of pedestrians. Often, when a light turns green for a right-hand turn the crosswalk light will also turn green to let pedestrians walk. Drivers are supposed to wait until the pedestrians have crossed the street before turning right, even if the light happens to be green at the time.
Some drivers won't check to see if there are pedestrians and will zoom through a right turn on a green light, which can result in a pedestrian accident. It is the law to yield to individuals who are walking, so it should be easy to prove the driver's liability. Your lawsuit may not be legitimate if you were jaywalking or crossing the street on a red, no-walk signal.
Fighting for Recovery from Your Injuries
Some of the injuries resulting from pedestrian accidents include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Organ damage
- Road rash
Oftentimes, spinal cord injuries can lead to paralysis or disability and brain injuries can lead to confusion, memory loss or mental retardation.
