U Turn Car Accidents

In a number of driving situations in Nashua, it is hazardous, and at times downright illegal to make a U-turn. Turning the car at 180°, it is dangerous to travel with oncoming traffic.

This can cause severe accidents. Indeed, the majority of motorists are injured, and even die yearly when making U-turns. Thus, if you or a loved one received an injury by a motorist making a U-turn recklessly, you should contact an experienced automobile accident attorney.

Typical causes of U-turn accidents can entail making a U-turn where it is unlawful to do so; this makes a U-turn from a stopped position or backed position on the right side of the road negligent, reckless, or careless when making a U-turn without looking for traffic, as well as obstructing views. This makes a U-turn to a turning lane illegal.

Generally, the motorist making the U-turn can be considered liable for collisions regarding U-turns. Namely, if the individual was not paying attention, and neglected to check for any oncoming vehicles.

If you sue the motorist for the injuries you or passenger sustained as a result of the U-turn, he or she will likely make an argument that he or she acted illegally, or that you as the other motorist, was more negligent or careless in the accident.

If you receive injury in an automobile accident and the other motorist made a reckless or illegal U-turn, be sure to take photographs of any street markings or road signs which may help you confirm you were driving properly.

It is always prudent to take photographs of any automobile damage on your vehicle, and the other vehicle to prove who drove irresponsibly.
