The Montana Highway Patrol has released a report detailing the state’s accident statistics from 2013, and the news from this report is not great. Both the number of fatal accidents and the number of traffic deaths went up that year as compared to the previous year.
As you can imagine, head-on collisions are some of the most dangerous on the road. Unfortunately, injured victims and grieving families are often left awaiting the outcome of a criminal trial after a wrong-way driver has caused an accident. Those suffering the effects of such a crash should also know that there may be legal avenues for achieving justice beyond criminal court.
