Indianapolis Left Turn Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
If you or a loved one have been injured in a left turn motorcycle accident, Hankey Marks & Crider can help. Left turn motorcycle accidents happen when car or truck drivers making a left turn don’t see motorcyclists coming, or they misjudge the distance between them and the motorcyclist. Because of the motorcycle’s much smaller size, this can cause devastating accidents that result in millions of dollars in property damage and life-altering injuries.
Because of the severity of the injuries that motorcycle accidents cause, it is important for drivers to be extra vigilant for motorcyclists on the road. If you or a loved one has been injured in a left turn motorcycle accident due to someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to compensation. You should not have to deal with the financial burdens caused by someone else. Hankey Marks & Crider can help you hold negligent drivers accountable for their actions.

Why Do I Need a Lawyer?
The driver that was negligent is liable for paying medical bills, future rehabilitation bills, property damage, lost wage costs, and any other expenses you may have incurred due to the accident. You most likely will not get any money unless you have an attorney that knows how to file a civil suit against the driver.
Understand that the driver will probably hire an aggressive attorney that will try to get them out of any liability. You need a skilled attorney to help investigate and evaluate your case to get you the best outcome. Don’t let the negligent driver get away with not paying for the injuries they have caused.

Cases We Handle
Left turn motorcycle accidents can be caused by many actions, most of them preventable. These include:
- Carelessness: By disregarding the possibility of a motorcyclist riding alongside, a driver can easily miss a motorcyclist because of the motorcycle’s smaller size if they don’t check. Drivers of trucks and cars need to be aware that the road is to be shared with everyone. It is their responsibility to drive carefully and safely to ensure that everyone can use the roads safely.
- Distracted driving: Using a cell phone to text or browse the internet takes attention away from the road and directs it to a screen in your hand. If a driver is distracted either with a phone or with any other activity they are doing in their car, they can become less aware of their surroundings. This can cause them to miss a motorcycle and make a dangerous left turn that can cause an accident.
- Intoxicated driving: By driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, your reflexes are slowed and reaction times are increased. This can also be the cause of left turn motorcycle accidents. A driver is liable for any injuries they cause while driving a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol. This includes prescription medications in addition to illegal drugs.
