Head-On Collisions Can Be Catastrophic Or Fatal

A head-on collision is one of the most dangerous types of car accidents. The drivers sustain enormous force when the two vehicles collide. All or part of the front end of the vehicles may crumple. In some head-on accidents, the vehicles also catch fire and burn.

We Will Investigate The Cause Of Your Accident

There are numerous ways that head-on collisions can occur. Some of the most common causes include drunk or distracted drivers, reckless drivers, aggressive drivers, drivers who are speeding, drivers who ignore traffic signals and drivers who fall asleep. Depending on the cause of your accident, we may be able to seek punitive damages in addition to the compensatory damages.

Head-on collisions can result in extremely serious injuries such as:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Severe lacerations
  • Amputations
  • Burns
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Air bag injuries
  • Internal injuries

In addition to these injuries, wrongful death is not uncommon in head-on accidents.

We represent accident victims as well as the families of catastrophically and fatally injured accident victims. In wrongful death cases, you may be entitled to compensation for the loss of your loved one, the victim's pain and suffering, the victim's future wages and benefits, the loss of the victim's contributions to the household, and funeral and burial expenses. We understand that this is a difficult time, and will help you look ahead to the future while seeking the compensation you need.
