Head On Collision Accident Attorney

Head-on collisions can be minor or severe; it all comes down to the speed of the vehicle at the time of impact. But, it is rare for people to walk away from these types of accidents with a few injuries. And, because the impact is based on adding up each car’s speed, the injuries are often more catastrophic in this type of accident.
After the effects of your head-on collision start to settle in, you may find yourself facing numerous medical bills that you never realized you would have to pay. You may take hours off work recovering or even find that returning to work is too difficult given your injuries.
This is why you need the assistance of a personal injury attorney. If you or a loved one was injured in a head-on collision, you will have medical bills that may start to pile up and you may even feel overwhelmed. But, the attorneys at Leifer Law Firm can help you get back on your feet and get the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
Common Causes of Head-on Collision Accidents
A head-on accident occurs when two vehicles in opposite directions collide with their front bumpers.
There are numerous reasons why vehicles may have this type of accident happen – and they are a lot more common than drivers may realize. Often these accidents are because of the other driver’s negligence.
Some of the most common causes for these accidents include:
- Poor weather
- Distracted driving
- Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Poor visibility
- Failure to obey traffic signals
- Reckless driving
- Road rage
- Texting while driving
- Turning into oncoming traffic
- Suicide attempt
- Going on the wrong side of the freeway
- Running from the police
Injuries Associated with Head-On Collisions are Severe – If Not Fatal
The injuries that can occur from these types of accidents are devastating. According to the National Highway Traffic Administration, it is estimated that one out of every 50 accidents is a head-on collision.
These accidents cause a great deal of force between the two vehicles, which is why they often involve more serious injuries and fatalities than other types of accidents.
Some of the common injuries seen with these types of vehicle accidents include:
- Airbag injuries
- Back and neck injuries, including whiplash
- Bone breaks and fractures
- Brain injuries – including traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Dental injuries
- Facial lacerations, broken bones, and other injuries
- Internal organ damage
- Nerve injuries
- Spinal cord damage
These types of injuries can lead to temporary or permanent disability for some individuals.
For some victims, they may not see their injuries right away; it could take a few days or few weeks for symptoms to manifest. For others, they know from the moment the accident occurs that they are seriously injured.
No matter if you feel injured or not, you need to get medical attention right away after an accident. By contacting a physician, you can be diagnosed and start treatment before your injuries become more serious.
Then, you need to contact a personal injury attorney to help you file your claims with insurance companies and get the compensation you deserve for your losses.
