Our Romulus car accident lawyers recently filed a head-on motor vehicle accident lawsuit for a client in the Wayne County Circuit Court. The case arises out of a multi-vehicle collision that occurred in the city of Romulus. The client was a passenger in a vehicle that was heading westbound and another vehicle was travelling eastbound waiting to take a left turn. The vehicle waiting to take a left turn was struck by a negligent driver, pushing the waiting car across the center line and striking the client’s vehicle head-on.
While all types of auto accidents are serious, head-on collisions may be one of the most fatal types of accidents a person can be involved. Depending on the speed a vehicle is driving at the time of the accident, serious injuries or even death may result due to this type of crash. According to federal statistics, approximately 10% of all fatal crashes in the United States result from head-on auto accidents. In addition, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2009, 1,772 people in the United States died in motor vehicle accidents in which a driver entered a road against traffic or drove on the wrong side of the road. Several thousands more were injured all across the country.
Our client suffered significant injuries in the auto accident. Hi injuries include a lower back injury requiring surgery and nerve damage into both legs. He also suffered a brief loss of consciousness and developed a blot clot in his left hip. The client is also suffering from depression since the accident happened. The lawsuit was filed against the negligent driver in the Wayne County Circuit Court in Detroit, Michigan. It seeks damages for the pain and suffering, disability, and psychological damages suffered by our client. No trial date has been set by the court.
