Left Turn Collisions in Albuquerque
Drivers who fail to yield the right-of-way are putting themselves and others at risk of serious injury. Intersection collisions are involved in 50 percent of all major collisions each year. A majority of these crashes involve drivers making lefthand turns.
Sixty-one percent of intersection crashes are caused by left turns. Drivers often continue into the intersection without the right-of-way, causing them to be hit by another driver. In some cases, injured parties can recover deserved compensation by contacting an Albuquerque car accident lawyer.
