Accidents can happen so fast. Especially at highway speeds, a vehicle can act like a battering ram. And when that vehicle comes straight at you, it’s one of the scariest experiences in the world. One term for this is “lane departure crashes” which doesn’t quite live up to the intensity of the trauma being run off the road brings on. If you or a loved one has been involved in a crash like this, you are likely facing extensive damages and are looking ahead at a lengthy process of recovery.

How Do Run-Off-Road Accidents Happen?
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) names several factors that typically are involved in lane departure accidents. Most of these involve some degree of driver error:
- Distracted, drunk, or drugged driving.
- Driving while sleepy
- Driving too fast or following too closely during hazardous road conditions
- Defective road engineering
- Tire blow out
- Defective auto products or parts
- Poor visibility – again, driving too fast for the conditions
- Trying to avoid a collision with another vehicle or object
If a motorist loses control of the vehicle and swerves into the adjacent lane, chances are, you’ll be forced off the road if you’re unlucky enough to be there. When that lane departure is due to a driver’s negligence or willful wrongdoing, the victim is entitled to seek legal action. Victims might have to bear the losses and injuries, but do not bear the responsibility. Damages you may be entitled to recover can be medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, lost earning capacity, funeral expenses, and more.
