Illegal Passing and Turns
People who choose to break the rules of the road are subject to legal action. If they are pulled over for breaking the law, they may be fined. However, if they cause an accident, they may be subject to civil action. Every year, people file personal injury lawsuits against individuals who cause car accidents by acting recklessly and irresponsibly behind the wheel, for example, by making dangerous turns or illegally passing.
If you or your loved one has been injured by a negligent driver, you deserve compensation for your pain and suffering. Contact a Wisconsin car accident attorney of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. to discuss your legal rights and options by calling 800-242-2874.
Types of Illegal Passing
Each state establishes its own passing laws. The state of Wisconsin requires people going slower than normal traffic to avoid driving in the left lane. There are many dangers to driving significantly under the speed limit in the left lane. When drivers want to pass slower drivers, it is illegal to pass across solid lines or in certain areas.
Another form of illegal passing that has resulted in serious, and sometimes deadly, injuries is the illegal passing of school buses. Buses are equipped with stop signs that prevent oncoming traffic from encountering children who may be crossing the road.
Types of Illegal Turning
Illegal u-turning has resulted in millions of injuries. Dangerous intersections are often clearly marked with no u-turn signs. People who fail to follow these signs, or signs forbidding right or left turns, are putting many people in danger.
If you or your loved one has been injured due to the negligence of another driver, you may be facing financial and emotional difficulties. Therefore, it is important to speak with an attorney about your legal rights as soon as possible.
