The sad thing about improper turns is that they are by and large completely avoidable. Unlike other motor vehicle accidents which can happen due to a multitude of reasons, improper turns are traffic violations caused by driver negligence. This is why drivers who take improper turns and cause car accidents are more likely to end up in court than for other accident causes. It's much easier to win a personal injury lawsuit when the other driver has already been issued a ticket for an improper turn at the scene of the accident.

For all cases of improper turns leading to accidents, the injured party can demand and expect to get a big personal injury settlement one way or the other. If the negligent driver guilty of the wrong turn gets a ticket for a traffic violation, then there isn't much else left to prove.
If the guilty driver decides to contest the ticket and maybe gets it overturned, it doesn't change the fact that there was a traffic violation and it resulted in someone getting injured. It may be that a turn sign was not visible due to an obstruction or inadequate lighting. In such cases, the responsibility shifts to the government which can then be accused of causing the accident through negligence.
