What Is An Unsafe Lane Change?

An unsafe lane change is defined as moving out of the lane of travel without ensuring that it is safe to do so. The consequences of this deceptively simple action can be complex and devastating.  Unsafe lane changes can quickly cause a chain reaction of destruction, particularly if a larger vehicle collides with a smaller one.

Examples of an unsafe lane change include failing to signal before changing lanes, moving into a neighboring lane of travel and striking another car, causing an adjacent car to brake suddenly, or hitting an oncoming car head-on if passing.

Unsafe lane change accidents can result in catastrophic injuries. Following these common-sense driving tips can help keep you and your loved ones safe.

Who Is at Fault In an Illegal Lane Change Accident?

One of the most important factors of any unsafe lane change case is determining who is liable for the accident. While every case and set of circumstances is unique, the driver changing lanes is often determined to be at fault if the lane change results in an accident. Police, investigators, and the judge will work to determine who possessed the right of way in a given situation. 

In many jurisdictions, a driver is responsible for changing lanes only if it is safe to do so. Other factors, such as weather, time of day, or road work, may also factor into determining liability, as will relevant local laws. 

Proving liability can be difficult without a skilled legal team on your side.
