U-Turn Car Accident Lawyer

Auto Accident Attorney for People Injured in U-Turn Accidents

When performing a U-turn the driver needs to make sure that the maneuver is legal and that they yield the right of way to any oncoming traffic. Negligent U-turns accidents commonly cause pedestrian injuries, car accidents with oncoming vehicles, and multiple-car crashes. Whenever motorists make decisions that result in the injury of other individuals, they may be held liable for damages that include the cost of medical care, car repair or replacement, and any lost wages.

The Different Types of U-turn Accidents and Who is Affected

Negligent U-turn maneuvers have the potential to cause major accidents that require complex and extensive litigation to resolve. Some accidents resulting from improper U-turns include:

  • Multiple vehicle accidents — Chain reaction accidents typically occur because of a reckless or negligent U-turn when the angle of impact causes one vehicle to slide into oncoming traffic or into other vehicles occupying the intersection. These accidents can be difficult to litigate because of the complexity in establishing which parties are liable and to what extent.
  • Motorcycle accident — Motorcyclists can be difficult to notice and are often the victims of accidents involving other drivers who fail to see them or provide the same rights to them that all vehicles sharing the road deserve.
  • Injury to pedestrian — Whenever a crosswalk is present at an intersection, pedestrians must be given the right of way and it is a common error for motorists not to notice a pedestrian crossing when in the midst of making a U-turn. 

Factors that Contribute to Texas U-Turn Accidents

Even when it is legal to make a U-turn, it is paramount that motorists do so in a safe manner. A U-turn must be made from the correct lane and location in the road. Below are the some of the most common contributing factors to U-turn accidents.

  • Failure to obey traffic signal — Drivers making U-turns or motorists in oncoming vehicles may fail to obey a changing traffic signal, resulting in a collision. Whenever drivers disobey traffic control devices and accidents are likely to occur.
  • Making a U-turn from an improper location — Some drivers attempt to make a U-turn from the right of two adjacent left turn lanes, from a parking space or in a location where there are NO U-TURN signs are present. It is important that drivers only make U-turns from positions where it is both legal to do so and where they have complete awareness of surroundings.
  • Adverse weather — Adverse weather conditions including extreme and sudden storms can limit driver visibility or reduce traction, which can cause accidents. In some U-turn cases, direct sunlight can make it difficult for drivers to see.
  • Making a U-turn without looking or yielding — When drivers are in a hurry, they can make brash and irrational decisions.
