There are few driving situations as complicated as a left turn, especially an unprotected left turn. Drivers need to make sure they have enough time to turn before oncoming traffic arrives, deal with honking cars behind them, be aware of civilians and bikes on crosswalks, and execute a safe left turn.

The complications of a left turn make it one of the most dangerous aspects of driving, especially in heavily congested cities like San Francisco. 40% of fatal traffic accidents occurred when a car took a left-hand turn and struck a pedestrian. While some blame for these accidents can be attributed to intersection design, negligent driving is also a common cause.

If you or a loved one was involved in a traffic accident, you might be due compensation for the injuries or wrongful death. San Francisco car accident lawyers at Berg Injury Lawyers can help you recover the financial losses associated with your injuries or a loved one’s death.
