Wrong-Way Accident Causes

Wrong-way accidents occur on one-way roadways, such as divided highways, on and off ramps, and one-way streets.

Wrong-way accidents may be entirely the fault of the driver or might involve outside factors.

Improper or poorly visible signage, ineffective highway lighting, construction zone markings, or other highway factors often cause drivers to become confused about where they are supposed to drive.
Factors that can cause wrong way driving decisions include distractions like cell phones, programming GPS and other devices, changing CDs, multitasking, trying to figure out directions to a destination, eating or drinking and other activities.
The driver might have been intoxicated with drugs, alcohol, or prescription medications.
The driver might have had a medical condition that caused him to become confused, blurred his vision, or made him dizzy or faint. He might have been fatigued.
Occasionally a driver will choose to go the wrong way. Maybe they were looking for a shortcut because they had taken a wrong turn or were in a hurry. Maybe they wanted to avoid heavy traffic on the correct route. Maybe they were thrill-seeking or even suicidal.
Our job is to find out how and why your accident occurred and get a settlement that compensates you for your injuries and losses. We will investigate all possible causes and contributors to your accident, develop the most thorough estimate of present and future expenses, and fight diligently to obtain this award.
