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.
