The driver of the car behind you is At Fault. You may face separate legal issues if you were attempting to make an illegal u-turn, however even if the u-turn was illegal the driver in the other car had the last clear chance to avoid you and should have been in better control of their vehicle.

This depends on the situation, but if you were stationary, not moving and he hit you, he would be at fault. In most cases if the other motorist hits you from behind it is his fault, as you must maintain full control of your vehicle at all times, and if he hit you from behind, that was not the case.

Assuming you have signalled in good time that you are turning right,most would agree that the fault lies with the car behind-who should have left enough distance to slow down. This happened to a friend of mine-the other driver lied and said that he did not signal,and changed lanes without warning.He was a convincing liar and won the case.So take nothing for granted-even basic facts can be dsputed.
