Turn signals can make the difference in your Rockville accident case
1/27/2012A rude, impatient driver cuts you off with no warning. “Use your blinker!” you yell in frustration as you pound on the brakes.
A near miss might leave you shaken up and annoyed at the lack of common courtesy on the road.
However, if that person’s failure to use their turn signal caused a devastating Rockville accident in which you were injured, you might be downright angry, and rightly so.
Did you know that Maryland driving law has very specific rules for using a turn signal?
There is so far nothing in the law that says drivers have to signal a lane change on the highway (although some legislators have tried to get that changed).
It is, however, the law, to signal a turn at an intersection.
In other words, if you’ve been hurt in a Maryland intersection accident because another driver didn’t use their blinker, you have every right to sue.
