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 a driver caused a wrong-way accident and it resulted in the death of a person, the family of the person that was killed has a right to a wrongful death claim against the negligent driver.
