If you are in a turning lane, and the other vehicle turns into you while they are in a straight lane, then they should be at fault. If the accident ends up in court take photos of the intersection to help plead your case.

Who's at fault when a semi truck changing lanes from left to right hits a car traveling in the semis blind-spot?

The truck driver for not properly controlling their vehicle in a turn. The semi driver should always be watching in their mirrors on every turn and should have stopped before hitting the other vehicle. The truck driver shouldn't have been in the left lane to start with, but its not entirely his fault. Motorists should know that trailer trucks have to make wide right hand turns some trucks even have a warning placard on the back and on the right hand side of the trailer warning of wide turns to the right. So the fault should fall on both the drivers.

What is the law if someone turns in front of you and you hit them?

They are usually at fault unless the subsequent investigation (or witness statements) discloses some kind of contributory negligence on your part.Protected and Un-Protected turnsActually it depends on the situation, basically what were the posted traffic rules in effect at the scene? If the turning driver was making a legal protected turn when you hit them then you would be at fault for hitting them. If the turn was protected by law or posted signs then they had the right of way and you were required to yeild.If the other driver was making a turn that was not protected then they are probably at fault as you would most likely have had the right of way.

What is an unprotected left turn?

It is a left turn where the turning driver must yield to oncoming traffic entering a cross-streets intersection because there is no left left turn signal facing that left-turning driver during which a red light stops oncoming traffic to protect the left turning vehicle. This holds in keep-to-the-right countries. For keep-to-left countries, there are, sometimes, protected right turns.

Why would the front driver side tire on your trailblazer squeal?

you could be putting to much force on the wheel while turning. A way to stop this may be to turn right at a slower speed or make right hand turns that are not as sharp. If that does not work, visit a repair shop.

When turning left which wheel of the car will lift?

Due to centrifugal force, when turning left, the left side of the car will life. The same goes for right handed turns. If turning right, the right side of your car will have less weight on it. The weight will always be on the outside of the curve. Hope this helps :)
