What Happens in a Right Turn Car Accident?
A right turn car accident generally occurs when two vehicles collide, or one vehicle hits a pedestrian, when one was in the act of making a right turn. Typically, this is due to the right-turning driver misjudging the space between their car and the car or person in front of them.

Determining Fault in a Right Turn Collision
Determining fault in a car accident is extremely important, as you will be unable to receive compensation if there is no one held liable for your injuries or property damage. Often, the liable party will be the one who was found to be driving negligently.
Is the Fault Party Liable in a Right Turn Accident?
Typically, the at-fault party will be held liable in a right turn accident. This is the party who failed to yield to oncoming traffic with the right-of-way, for example, or the party who turned right at a red light where a sign stated “no turn on red.”
If you have been involved in an accident and are unsure of who was at fault, contact Zinda Law Group today.
Failing to Yield
A failure to yield accident happens when one driver does not follow the rules of the road and fails to yield appropriately. This may occur when one driver is turning right onto oncoming traffic, causing an accident. These accidents can cause significant damages to all vehicles involved.
If you have been involved in a car accident and believe the other driver had a duty to yield, but failed to do so, contact Zinda Law Group today. We can help discuss your case and determine who was at fault for your injuries and property damage.

How Do I File a Claim After a Right-Turn Car Crash?
The “statute of limitations” is the legal time limit you have to file a claim. This time limit varies from state to state and from claim to claim, so it is important to contact an experienced personal injury attorney in your area soon after the accident occurred, before filing your motor vehicle lawsuit. Knowing the statute of limitations in your unique case is extremely important, as you may be barred from receiving compensation if you fail to file your claim on time. Hiring a personal injury attorney may help you file your lawsuit properly and in a timely manner.
As stated, the statute of limitations will vary from state to state. Below are examples of the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in different states where Zinda Law Group practices:
- Colorado: 3 years if your claim involves a motor vehicle; 2 years for all other claims
- Texas: 2 years
- New Mexico: 3 years.
It is important to note that the time limit in each of the above states begins at the date of the accident. For example, if you were involved in a motor vehicle accident on January 1, 2020, in Texas, you have until January 1, 2022, to file your car accident lawsuit, or you may be barred from receiving any kind of compensation for your injuries or property damage.
If you have been involved in an accident and are thinking of filing a lawsuit, contact an experienced Zinda Law Group personal injury attorney today. Our team is nationwide and available to speak to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We may be able to help you seek the maximum amount of compensation available in your unique case.
What Type of Damages Are Recoverable After a Right-Turn Car Accident?
There are two main types of damages that you may be able to recover after a right-turn car accident. The first is economic damages, which are easily quantified by combining out-of-pocket expenses, such as medical bills and property damage costs. The second is non-economic damages, which are harder to quantify, as they include non-monetary losses, including disfigurement, loss of enjoyment of life, and pain and suffering.
Contact Zinda Law Group today if you have been involved in a right-turn car accident; our attorneys can help investigate your case and determine what damages you may be able to recover.
Financial Compensation After a Right Turn Accident
As previously discussed, you may be able to receive economic and non-economic compensation for your various damages. These damages are meant to compensate the victim for their losses following a car accident. For instance, if you suffered from a broken bone and required medical treatment, you may be able to seek compensation for your hospital stay, pharmaceutical costs, physical therapy, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions
If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident and suffered injury, you may have a lot of questions. For example, you may be wondering:
How do insurance companies determine who is at fault?
Insurance companies may determine fault in many ways, including by looking at the police report, speaking to witnesses, reviewing video footage, reviewing photographs, by speaking to experts, looking at medical records, and reviewing all other relevant evidence.
What are some basic mistakes that can cause right turn accidents?
Examples that may cause right turn accidents include:
- Turning at a red light when there is a “no turn on red” sign
- Failing to yield to oncoming traffic
- Turning without properly signaling
- Making an illegal U-turn.
How do you know whose fault it is in an accident?
Typically, the at-fault driver will be the one who violated traffic laws. For instance, if it can be shown that one driver turned right at a red light when there was a “no turn on red” sign and subsequently got in a wreck with an oncoming vehicle, he or she will likely be found liable for any resulting damages.
Who is at fault in a right-turn accident?
As previously discussed, the at-fault party in a right-turn accident is often the individual who violated traffic laws. Furthermore, the subsequent police report will likely be beneficial in showing which driver violated those laws.
