Michigan Wrong-Way Driving Accidents

Watch any action movie and you’re bound to see a high-speed car chase. In fact, you’ll nearly always see a nail-biting wrong-way driving sequence. Although these films are far from detailing real life, the havoc caused by wrong-way driving is, unfortunately, not just found on the big screen.

In Michigan, vehicle accidents caused by wrong-way driving cause serious injury and take lives. The Mike Morse Law Firm can help you make sense of these traumatic crashes and ensure your legal concerns are handled thoroughly and with great care.

By the numbers alone, it is easy to see that wrong-way driving incidents can be catastrophic to those involved. On one hand, national figures show that a very small percentage of total roadway auto accidents are related to wrong-way driving: somewhere around 2 percent. However, after inspecting the harm caused by wrong-way driving auto accidents, the numbers jump up dramatically: a huge percentage of them cause serious or life-threatening injury. The severity of these types of crashes simply cannot be overlooked.

In some situations, the driver who begins careening the wrong way down a Michigan roadway will manage to turn around and leave the scene – and other motorists, passengers and pedestrians – wholly unscathed. But many Michigan drivers, for reasons sometimes unknown, continue straight into the path of oncoming traffic.

The Major Cause Of Wrong-Way Driving Accidents

What is not a mystery is that many Michigan wrong-way driving accidents occur because of driving while intoxicated or impaired. Additionally, high volumes of these accidents – over 50 percent – take place because a motorist has headed the wrong-way on an exit ramp. Last, it is very common for wrong-way driving, under all of the conditions described, to take place in the dark of the early morning hours.

Other Causes Of Wrong-Way Driving Accidents

Less apparent causes of wrong-way driving accidents in Michigan are poor or improper roadway design, insufficient lighting, inadequate signage or other conditions that make a roadway difficult to navigate. The Mike Morse Law Firm will help assess the circumstances surrounding the wrong-way driving accident you were involved in, and help make sure your case address from all angles.

Intentional or deliberate, Michigan wrong-way driving cases can result in significant compensation, including repayment for the following areas:

  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages, and more

    Starlynn Markiewicz
  • 28 years after my accident I received a letter from The Mike Morse Law Firm with an information brochure. I’m so glad I kept that letter because later on when AAA wrongly suspended my no fault benefits, I immediately contacted Mike. Mr. Morse took my case and did everything he said he would do. Now, more than 28 years after my accident, AAA is paying like they should be, and it’s all because of Mr. Morse’s hard work and expertise.
