Two-Lane Highway Accidents
Rural roads are extremely dangerous, but most drivers believe the opposite is true. The U.S. Census shows that only about 21 percent of Americans live in rural areas. However, the Federal Highway Administration reported that nearly 60 percent of deadly highway accidents occur on rural roads.

We Hold The Negligent Party Liable
We have the skill and experience to recover damages for personal injury and wrongful death claims. You may receive compensation for losses such as property damage, medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and funeral expenses.
Why do so many fatalities happen on rural roads? A study by the University of Minnesota found that people take more chances when driving in rural areas. They tend to drink and drive, eat and drive, text and drive, and speed more often than on urban highways. When we investigate the accident, we will determine whether these types of negligence caused your injuries.
Additional reasons for rural vehicle accidents include crops obscuring a driver’s view, especially at intersections. If the driver does not see the stop sign, he or she will continue through the intersection. Crops can prevent both drivers from seeing the other vehicle, as well.
It is important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible after the accident. We need to get to the scene immediately to collect evidence and document the conditions of the road/intersection. We also need to preserve the vehicles and additional evidence before it is damaged or disappears.
