What Is A Lane Change Accident?

A lane change accident occurs when a driver changes lanes and collides with another vehicle. Other drivers might not be able to brake or avoid the merging driver, resulting in an accident. Lane change accidents happen for the following reasons:

Road Rage

Aggressive drivers are often guilty of road rage, which happens when a driver is impatient or angry while in traffic. They can cut off other drivers or weave in and out of traffic when attempting to get to their destination.

Distracted Driving

Drivers who are not paying attention to the road are also capable of causing a lane change car accident. They can be texting, talking to other passengers, eating, grooming, or making phone calls, which are distractions that can cause lane change accidents.

Substance Abuse

When a driver has a BAC level that is over 0.08% or is abusing an illicit substance, this puts them at risk of hitting other drivers. This can inhibit their judgment, causing them to switch lanes when it is not safe to do so.


Speeding drivers can also cause lane change accidents. When they are driving too fast, they might not notice other drivers moving at a slower pace and crash into them when changing lanes.

Lack of Indicator Use

Drivers who don’t use their indicators make it more difficult for other drivers to know when they are going to change lanes. This can cause an accident if the other driver gets cut off by a car suddenly and unexpectedly appearing before them.

How Can Your Attorney Prove That You’re Owed Compensation?

Drivers who cause lane change accidents can be held liable for their negligent behavior. This is especially because those accidents could be avoided if the driver was attentive and aware of their surroundings while being considerate to neighboring drivers. You can seek counsel from an attorney who will gather evidence to prove the other driver’s fault for the change accident.

Camera Footage

Your attorney can obtain footage from traffic or surveillance cameras to show the driver’s maneuvers before the accident. If the accident was caught on camera, they will analyze the footage to find out how the other driver caused the accident.

File A Subpoena

The other driver may have been texting while driving. Your attorney can prove this by obtaining the cellphone usage history from their phone company through a subpoena. If they were texting or using their phone, then your attorney can hold them responsible for the lane change accident.

The Police Report

Attorneys can use the information outlined in your police report to support your claim. If the police wrote a citation against the other driver, it would be mentioned.

Drug Tests

If the police issued a breathalyzer or chemical test and discovered the driver was intoxicated, your attorney can obtain this information and use it to build your case.

Driving Records

Attorneys can obtain the driving records of the other driver to reveal whether they have a pattern of driving infractions. This can help your case.

Who Is At Fault In A Lane-Change Accident?

Some lane-change accidents can be confusing with unclear information about who is to blame and result in arguments between all involved parties. The individual who first crashed into another isn’t always to blame in a lane-change accident, but rather the person who left their lane improperly. Lane-Change Accidents often result in Multi-Car Incidents, which means that there may be multiple eye-witnesses who saw the lane-changing driver making a mistake. However, if you were hit by someone doing an improper lane change but were Speeding or Distracted While Driving, this may also hold you liable for your damages.

How Can An Attorney Help Me?

A car accident attorney can investigate your lane change accident and determine fault based on the evidence involved. If you were already in your lane and following traffic laws, it is likely that the other driver is the one who will be held liable for your lane change accident. This is because it is their responsibility to check the adjacent lane before they enter it. They can’t attempt to occupy a lane that already has a vehicle present. Only in some circumstances, for example, if you were speeding, will you be held partially responsible for the lane change accident.

Attorneys collect evidence from the police report, eyewitness testimonies, photographs of the car accident scene, traffic camera footage, and more. It is their duty to make sure that you have a strong case against the other driver so that you can obtain maximum compensation. Attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, so you won’t have to pay upfront. You only pay the law firm once you’ve received your settlement.
