Liability In Car Accidents
Semi-truck drivers have a legal responsibility to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe condition and yield the right of way to other cars before turning. According to California Vehicle Code 21801, “The driver of a vehicle intending to turn to the left or to complete a U-turn upon a highway, or to turn left into public or private property, or an alley, shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles approaching from the opposite direction which are close enough to constitute a hazard at any time during the turning movement.” Victims of semi-truck accidents may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim.
