Left Turns are a Major Source of Car Accident Injuries in Kentucky

Left turns are a major source of car accident injuries in Kentucky according to the most recent Kentucky State Police Traffic Collision Facts report.  A side impact car accident, truck collision or motorcycle accident often results in more serious injury.  The safety improvements in vehicle design for head-on collisions and rear-end accidents have substantially improved over the past decades.  However, whenever you turn left you are exposed to a side impact from traffic approaching from as many as three different directions.  There is much less protection for a driver and their passengers when a vehicle is hit in the side as it is making a left turn.

The forces associated with an impact in the side of your car during a left turn are quite powerful.  The human body is forced to endure sudden forces from multiple directions immediately upon impact and following any subsequent impact with another vehicle or fixed object.  Even if the driver or passengers are restrained, side-impact accidents can result in serious injuries including multiple broken bones, neck injuries, head injury including Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and in some cases paralysis.  The Traffic Collision Facts report also notes the high number of fatal accidents which occur at Kentucky intersections.

Left turns are a major source of car accident injuries in Kentucky according to Kentucky State Police.  The attorneys at Hargadon, Lenihan & Herrington encourage all Kentucky motorists to exercise additional caution whenever entering an intersection, especially on a left turn.  There is less protection for you and the occupants of the vehicle you are driving in the midst of a left hand turn.
