A: Determining fault in an intersection accident case will require review of applicable state/local traffic laws, the police report, accident scene photos, property damage photos, etc. Generally, cars turning left must yield the right of way to oncoming traffic. However, the issue of speeding comes into play. The end result may be that both parties are assigned some portion of fault in causing the accident.

It is important to note that in a car, truck or motorcycle accident situation where fault is not clear, the insurance companies for all parties involved will seek to interview the parties. Generally, you are required to cooperate with your own insurance company. However, in Pennsylvania, you are not required to cooperate with any other party’s insurance company and in fact, should be sure to speak to a car accident lawyer before giving an interview or speaking to an insurance adjuster for the other side.
