Of all the collisions that can occur on the roadways of Texas, wrong way accidents are some of the most devastating possible. These collisions often happen at high speeds with little warning for victims, leaving unsuspecting motorists with major and possibly fatal injuries. Wrong way crashes are some of the most devastating incidents that can happen on the roads. The sad reality is that wrong way crashes and collision are among the worst kinds of car accidents possible.

When a motorist is negligent and travels in the wrong direction, victims deserve to be fairly compensated for their injuries and damages. At the Pascoe Law Firm, our legal team will work to determine the cause of the accident and help you recover damages from all responsible parties.
Wrong Way Driving Accidents
Why do People Drive in the Wrong Direction?
When you hear about a crash on the news caused by a wrong-way driver, the first questions that pops into most people’s minds is: Why was the motorist driving in the wrong direction? While there are many different factors that can contribute to a wrong way collision, there are several characteristics or conditions that are commonly associated with these types of accidents. For example:
- The vast majority of wrong way accidents occur while driving at night
- Most wrong way crashes take place on the weekend
- Speed or dangerous maneuvers that cause a loss of vehicle control
- Many wrong way crashes involve motorists entering an exit ramp in the wrong direction
- Passing vehicles on the wrong side of the road
- Vehicle defects that cause cars to swerve and hit other cars
- A large number of wrong way accidents involve drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Road dangers that lead to loss of vehicle control, such as a tire blowout
- Poor road signs and construction zones can cause drivers to go the wrong direction
Finding out which of the factors caused a driver to crash into you or your car will help you understand who to hold responsible through legal action.
How Can I Be Injured in a Wrong Way Crash?
Wrong way crashes can involve many different types of collisions. These devastating collisions are far more likely to lead to permanent or fatal injuries for anyone involved. Wrong way auto accidents often lead to:
- Brain trauma
- Spinal cord damage
- Broken bones
- Internal organ injuries
- Burn injuries from vehicle fires
Any of these forms of trauma can cause permanent disabilities in survivors and require not only extensive emergency medical procedures, but long-term medical care and rehabilitation. These costly procedures can leave innocent victims with massive debts that they did not cause, but must now deal with. However, proving fault in a legal case can make the driver and his or her insurance provider that caused your accident pay for your losses so that you can recover as much as possible and without devastating debt.
