U-Turn Accident Lawyers
Not all U-turns are illegal; however, there’s a right way and a 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.
The actions involving an SUV and a Ram resulted in a wrongful death of a driver and an injured passenger. 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, and if something should happen, it’s important to be vigilant and make sure you’re represented in the best way you can.
