Phoenix Left Turn Bike Accident Lawyers
Left-Turn Collisions Involving Bicycles
Like so many Arizonians, you're a responsible bicycle owner and rider. You regularly maintain your bike, wear a safety helmet, and obey the rules of the road. But despite your best efforts, you still ended up in an accident. Of course, mistakes happen – but, this was no mistake. This was a left turn collision, in which you had the clear right-of-way and the motorist in question failed to pay attention. For whatever the reason they missed you, there is a good chance they are at-fault, which means you could be entitled to compensation.
But what kind of compensation? Depending on the extent of your injuries and the degree of negligence involved, you could be awarded damages for:
- Emergency medical transportation and treatment
- Extended hospitalization and accommodations
- Prolonged physical and emotional therapy
- Pain and suffering
- Future medical bills
- Lost wages
- Property damage

I Was Clearly Going Straight – So How Could This Happen?
For most people, taking a left hand turn off of a busy street can be tricky. It requires the driver to be mindful of the incoming traffic, the traffic behind them, and the street light above. This is a lot of information to take in at once, so a good deal of concentration is required. Now, if that same driver is incapacitated for any reason or not paying attention, their left hand turn quickly went from tricky to treacherous.
Driver Behaviors that Lead to a Bike Collision in Phoenix
In most scenarios, the driver misjudges the amount of time left on the light, the speed of the traffic and the distance of the person on the bike. However, some particularly negligent drivers choose to engage in dangerous behavior, which can further complicates matters. Some of the more common missteps some drivers take often include:
- Texting while driving
- Drinking while driving
- Speeding or reckless driving
- Distracted driving of any kind
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Driving while emotionally compromised
