Wrong Way Accidents Are Often Preventable
Wrong way accidents are typically preventable. They often occur because one driver acts recklessly behind the wheel. Wrong way accidents may be the result of drunk or impaired driving, aggressive or reckless driving, or other issues with the driver behind the wheel of the other car. Even if a motorist goes the wrong way on a one-way road simply because of a navigating mistake, they may be liable for the accident they cause.
Wrong way accidents and other similar accidents can occur when:
- A driver goes the wrong way on a one-way street
- A driver enters an exit ramp to the interstate or another similar roadway
- A driver crosses over the median on a divided highway
- A driver goes the wrong way on an interstate or divided highway for some other reason
- A driver passes without room to do so on a two-lane road
- A driver is on the wrong side of a two-lane road
Wrong way accidents frequently lead to head-on collisions, and sometimes at full speed. This can cause catastrophic injuries for everyone involved. This could include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Injuries to the head, face, and neck
- Spinal cord injuries and other back and neck injuries
- Broken bones
- Lost limbs
- Burns, scarring, and disfigurement
- Internal injuries
- Permanent, impairing injuries
