U-Turn Accident Lawyers
Not all U-turns are illegal; however, there’s a right and wrong way to execute a U-turn on Houston roadways. To understand the correct way, you must recognize and understand the laws that pertain to U-turns. Unfortunately, when drivers are in a rush, they would rather perform a negligent U-turn than drive up a few blocks where it’s safe to do so. The same concept applies to passenger vehicles when another driver is making a U-turn. Regardless of fault, U-turn traffic accidents can be a scary experience.
While getting behind the wheel is an everyday event, one wrong move can result in the worst day of someone’s life. You can never be too careful on the road; if something should happen, it’s essential to be vigilant and ensure you’re represented in the best way you can.
