When you hear about wrong way accidents, they usually don’t involve much good news. Recently in Ogden, the fourth wrong way crash of the year on record in Utah involved drugs, alcohol and fatality. Sadly, this is a common tale when it comes to these kinds of catastrophic accidents.
Drugs and alcohol are the most common causes of wrong-way accidents. Driver impairment including exhaustion and poor visibility are also common reasons why people end up driving on the wrong side of the road. Often there are issues with improper road signage, and with the increase in cell phone use, people pay more attention to their tasks for the rest of the day instead of the task at hand.
If you or a loved one has been in a wrong way accident, do not wait to contact a personal injury lawyer. These kinds of accidents are never easy, but your rights need to be protected and you deserve compensation for all of your damages.
