Left-hand turn accidents are one of the most common types of motorcycle accidents. These accidents are caused by a driver failing to notice a motorcycle because of its small size, thus resulting in a collision. This normally happens on intersections when the driver is waiting to turn left and does not see the oncoming motorcycle.

There are a variety of injuries that a motorcyclist may suffer from a left-hand turn accident. These include:
Depending on the seriousness of the accident, the motorcyclist may face temporary or permanent paralysis.
There are several factors that come into play when determining who is at-fault for a left-hand turn accident. Generally, it would be the individual who is turning that is at-fault for the collision. They are responsible for making sure that it is safe enough to change to the left. The driver is expected to yield to oncoming traffic and should only be permitted to move when the area is clear for them to do so.
In some cases, the non-turning rider may be at-fault. An example could be the rider exceeding the speed limit, thus resulting in a powerful impact with the left-turning car. However, it may be difficult to prove this, which is why an investigation must take place to review how the road conditions were prior to the accident.
Overall, it is important for both parties involved to have evidence and relevant information on-hand to back themselves up after a left-hand turn accident.
