Wrong-Way Collisions in Michigan

Grand Rapids, MI - Two Hurt in Crash with Wrong-Way Driver at US-131 & Hall St

Collisions between vehicles moving in opposing directions on divided roads or ramps are known as wrong-way crashes. These types of crashes have a high fatality rate and are among the most dangerous types of collisions possible. In the United States, wrong-way crashes caused an average of 430 fatalities annually between 2010 and 2018, according to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. Wrong-way drivers made up nearly half of these fatalities, and the majority of them were intoxicated at the time of the accident. 

There is a chance that your injuries resulting from a crash might not seem severe at first. However, you may later realize that you actually suffered severe injuries but were not aware of them right away. Car accidents are known to cause serious injuries to victims because they are frequently chaotic, involving many different factors and parties. After a car accident, you should always go to the hospital to get treated. If you delay seeking medical attention, it may be far more difficult to later obtain compensation for your damages. 

Understanding your legal rights after a crash is crucial because the injuries sustained in a car accident may last a lifetime. Many accident victims do not know what to do to pursue compensation, and many others unintentionally undermine their claim without even knowing. If you want to ensure that you are able to pursue the full and fair value of your claim, you need to contact a reliable attorney to represent you.
