Motor Vehicle Accidents Caused by Wide Turns—Queens, Brooklyn and the Bronx
Car Crashes Caused When Drivers Make Excessively Wide Turns | Commercial Trucks | Automobiles | Sideswipes | Rollovers | Right of Way Violations
We’ve all seen it… a large commercial truck driver, trying to navigate a turn on a fairly narrow road, finds it necessary to make a big sweeping arc in the opposite direction before making a left or right turn. Unfortunately, because of the sheer size of the vehicle, and because of challenges to a clear line of sight on all sides of the truck, such a move can often directly or indirectly cause a serious motor vehicle accident. The driver may unknowingly cause his truck to hit another vehicle or pedestrian, or may flatten a vehicle lost in a blind spot.
But it seems that those wide turns are no longer just being executed by truck drivers—it’s becoming more and more common for automobile and light truck drivers to do the same thing, often with disastrous consequences. If you or someone you love has been hurt in an accident caused when another driver carelessly makes a wide turn, you want an experienced and proven attorney to protect your rights.
