Common Causes of Wrong-Way Crashes

Between 2004-2009 there were 2,139 people killed in wrong-way crashes in the U.S. Wrong-way crashes aren’t common, but when they do occur, they typically involve one or more of the following negligent driving behaviors:

  • Speeding26% of all traffic fatalities involve speeding. Speeding can make it difficult to notice road signs and other drivers around you, increasing the odds of a wrong-way crash occurring
  • Driving Under the Influence – more than 50% of wrong-way crashes involve alcohol-use
  • Distracted Driving3,166 people are killed every year by distracted drivers; one of the most common causes of wrong-way crashes is distracted driving
  • Driver Fatigue6,000 fatal crashes are caused by drowsy driving every year. Driving while fatigue can increase the risk of not noticing wrong-way signs and running into other drivers on the road

What to Do If You Are in a Wrong-Way Crash in Missouri

Wrong-way crashes are generally severe and involve one or more types of negligence. If you are involved in a wrong-way crash, it’s essential not to panic, seek medical attention, gather evidence, and speak with an experienced lawyer about your case; even if you think you can’t afford a lawyer. Most lawyers use contingency plans, which means that you’ll only have to pay for their services if they recover compensation for your case.

A St. Louis Wrong-Way Crash Lawyer has your case’s best interests at heart, has extensive knowledge of your state’s traffic laws, and will do everything in their power to recover the most compensation for your case. After a wrong-way crash, it’s normal to feel lost and not know how to proceed with your case, but an experienced lawyer can offer support and make sure that you are taken care of during this trying time.

If you have a valid wrong-way crash claim, much like other types of car accident claims, you could be eligible to recover economic and non-economic damages for your harm and losses. Typically, the most common types of recoverable damages include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Emotional, mental, and physical distress
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Loss of affection

It can be challenging to determine what damages you are eligible to recover for a wrong-way crash, but with the help of an experienced St. Louis Wrong-Way Crash Lawyer, the best results can be produced for your case.
