Wrong-Way Collisions in San Diego
Head-on collisions are some of the most devastating. While they’re fairly rare, only accounting for 2 percent of reported crashes, they are responsible for nearly 10 percent of fatal crashes each year. 355 people are killed annually by wrong-way drivers.
Vehicles traveling at highway speeds can be potentially dangerous. Head-on crashes can be fatal even at low-speeds. In some cases, surviving family members can recover lost compensation with the help of a San Diego wrongful death attorney.
