Our Michigan car accident lawyers frequently represent clients injured in auto accidents in which a negligent driver drives over centerline of road and causes the accident. Over centerline accidents are a common cause of serious injury accidents because these crashes are often at high speeds and head-on. The unsuspecting car accident victim is not prepared for the crash and often has little or no time to take any action to avoid being struck by the other automobile.
Michigan Laws For Over Centerline Accidents
Michigan laws have specific statutes that address accidents in which a driver drives over centerline and causes an accident with another automobile. These specific laws include that the at fault driver was negligent for:
- Failing to drive on the right half of the roadway, in violation of Mich. Comp. Laws Ann. §257.634.
- Failing, before turning, from a direct line, to see that such movement could be made in safety, in violation of Mich. Comp. Laws Ann. §257.648.
- Failing, before turning from a direct line, to give a signal of such intention to turn, in violation of Mich. Comp. Laws Ann. §257.648.
In addition to these specific laws on driving over centerline, there are other claims for general negligence that our auto accident attorneys use to prove and win an improper right turn accident case.
