Were You Hit By A Driver Going The Wrong Way?

Accidents involving vehicles going the wrong way on a freeway or one-way street usually result in devastating injuries. The lives of the victims and their family members are often permanently altered.

The Law Offices of James L. O'Rourke has experience handling head-on collisions and other accidents that result in catastrophic or fatal injuries. Our attorneys have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for our clients. With offices in Stratford, Shelton , we represent families throughout the Greater Bridgeport area.

Protecting Your Rights In Wrong Way Vehicle Collisions

Liability is usually not an issue in a wrong way accident. The driver going the wrong way is at fault. In many cases, the driver is confused, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or suffering from a medical issue. Connecticut law may provide double or even triple damages if the negligent party deliberately or recklessly caused the accident by operating a motor vehicle in violation of state law.

If you have suffered permanent injuries, our attorneys can enlist the help of financial planners, life care planners, doctors and others who can help us document the cost of the injury over your lifetime.

In cases of wrongful death, our lawyers will take time getting to know your family member so we can communicate the loss to the insurance company of the at-fault driver.
