Re: Left-Turn Accident when Oncoming Car Was Speeding
Unless your state is different from the others, the law says that you can make a turn across traffic only hen it is safe to do so. Making such a turn and being struck by an approaching vehicle would tend to be prima facie evidence of an unsafe turn. Speed MIGHT play a factor if the speed were excessive enough and visibility was sufficiently limited such that the speed would make a significant difference in a turning driver's evaluation of the turn. But, generally, this just is not the case.
