Wrong Way Accident Causes

While no responsible driver should take actions that lead to wrong way incidents, they still occur more often than many think. These collisions have numerous causes, including:

  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Speed or dangerous maneuvers that cause a loss of vehicle control
  • Passing vehicles on the wrong side of the road
  • Vehicle defects that cause cars to swerve and hit other cars
  • Road dangers that lead to loss of vehicle control, such as a tire blowout

Finding out which of the factors caused a driver to crash into you or your car will help you understand who to hold responsible through legal action.

How Can I Be Injured in a Wrong Way Crash in Seattle?

Wrong way crashes can involve many different types of collisions, but most often they end in a head-on crash with another vehicle. These devastating collisions are far more likely to lead to permanent or fatal injuries in anyone involved. Wrong way auto accidents often lead to:

Any of these forms of trauma can cause permanent disabilities in survivors and require not only extensive emergency medical procedures, but long-term medical care and rehabilitation. These costly procedures can leave innocent victims with massive debts that they did not cause, but must now deal with.

However, proving fault in a legal case can make the driver and his or her insurance provider that caused your accident pay for your losses so that you can recover as much as possible and without devastating debt.

How Can I Find Success in My Legal Case?

If you are recovering from being the victim of a wrong way crash or are grieving the death of a loved one from such an incident, it may seem obvious that the reckless driver is responsible. However, that does not mean that your legal case will be open and shut. You still have to prove how your incident happened, who caused it, and how much compensation you should receive.

Only through collecting and presenting in-depth evidence and eye witness testimony can you have the best chance at finding complete success and receiving compensation that pays for your recovery. But with the help of a skilled Seattle traffic accident lawyer, you can focus on recovery while your case is on its way to success.
