If you got hurt in a left-turn car accident in Tampa, you may be in pain and have medical bills piling up. Your insurance might cover some of your damages, but not all of them, so you might have to negotiate or even sue for certain damages. Our firm can do either for you and may be able to help you recover more damages.
During a free consultation, we’ll tell you more about recovering your damages. We’ll also tell you about working with a Tampa left-turn car accident lawyer from our personal injury law firm.
What Damages Can I Get After A Left-Turn Car Accident?
According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, drivers in Florida must have personal injury protection (PIP) insurance. If you file a claim with your PIP policy, you can get compensated for basic damages, including up to 80% of your medical bills and 60% of lost wages, regardless of who was at fault in the crash.
However, if your damages exceed the limits of your policy, you may need to turn elsewhere for compensation. Additionally, you likely won’t be compensated for non-economic damages, such as the pain you’ve experienced, through your PIP policy.
A car accident lawyer from our firm can help you file a claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance company to cover serious injuries, property damage, and more. You may also file a lawsuit against the liable driver for all of your economic and non-damages. Your lawyer will go over all of your options with you.
Regardless of what you and your lawyer decide, you can expect your lawyer to fight for all of your due damages. These could include:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Emotional trauma
- Vehicle repair bills
- Bills for other damaged personal property
- Medical bills
- Bills for post-medical care
- Income you’ve lost
- Income loss you anticipate in the future
- Loss of consortium, loss of spousal support, loss of parental support, and other wrongful death damages if you lost a family member in the accident

What Is My Left-Turn Car Accident Case Worth?
The overall value of your case depends on how many damages you have, how serious they are, and how certain damages are valuated. These damages include the financial consequences you’ve suffered and your physical and emotional pain.
If you let your Tampa left-turn car accident lawyer determine the value of such damages, they will use a valuation method that insurance companies (and judges) often understand. If the insurer (or the judge in your case) understands your lawyer’s method, they may be more likely to approve the valuation.
Once your lawyer has listed and valuated your damages, they can tell you the overall value of your case.

Who Is At Fault In A Left-Turn Accident?
In a Florida left-turn accident, generally, the driver who made a left turn when there was not enough room to do so is at fault. However, another driver could be at fault under certain circumstances.
Regardless of fault, in Florida, a claimant should file their initial compensation claim through their own PIP insurance. However, the claimant may have to convince their insurers that they should be liable for certain damages. If the claimant is suing another driver, the claimant will have to prove the other driver is at fault and liable.
Establishing liability is difficult, but one of the Tampa left-turn accident lawyers from our firm can do it for you. Your lawyer can:
Show Evidence Of Liability
Your lawyer will show your insurers evidence of liability, such as traffic camera footage of the accident or information from a vehicle’s event data recorder. If necessary, your lawyer can also show corroborating evidence, such as testimony from a car accident reconstructionist.
Show The Elements Of Liability
Your lawyer can also show precisely why the other driver is liable for your damages. To do this, your lawyer will show that:
- The driver had a duty to other drivers to make a left turn carefully
- The driver did not make the turn carefully
- Their carelessness caused the accident
- The accident caused you damages
