U-turns are basically left turns which account for nearly a quarter of all vehicle crashes according to NHTSA.
In addition, those who are making the u-turn are often the person at fault. This is because those who initiate a U-turn must allow for enough time to make sure they don’t impact the flow of traffic from the opposite direction.
If your injuries are caused by the negligence of a third party you may be entitled to compensation. In the event of a death, families may be entitled to wrongful death benefits.
