Wrong-way collisions are one of the most deadly kinds of collisions on roads even though they are less common. According to a Highway Special Investigation Report, a study in Virginia found the fatality rate for wrong-way collisions on controlled-access highways to be 27 times that of other kinds of accidents.
Because the driver of the Toyota caused a wrong-way accident, the family of victims have a right to file claims against the driver and their insurance. It is important to have an experienced lawyer handling the case who understands personal injury. An attorney can deal with insurance adjusters for you, negotiate settlements, and represent your best interests if a lawsuit is needed.
