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 Esquivel crossed the center line and caused a wrong-way accident, the family of the women and children who were killed has a right to wrongful death claims against the driver and their insurance. Additionally, the child passenger in Esquivel’s vehicle is entitled to a personal injury claim due to being involved in the wreck. It is important to have an experienced lawyer handling the case who understands wrongful death and personal injury. An attorney can deal with insurance adjusters for you, negotiate settlements, and represent your best interests if a lawsuit is needed.
