Often serious, head-on accidents can require substantial sums of money to recover from. Make sure your needs are met by working with a Phoenix head-on collision lawyer.
If you’ve been hurt in a head-on collision with another car, you know what a traumatizing experience it can be. Head-on collisions are responsible for some of the worst car wreck injuries. The momentum and weight of the vehicles colliding can have devastating results, even when the cars are traveling at low speeds.
If another driver was at fault in your collision, you may be entitled to a personal injury claim. A settlement from the insurance company is likely to be insufficient for the many needs you may be facing. Wagner Law’s Phoenix head-on collision lawyer can work to get you the full and fair settlement you’re owed.
What Causes a Head-On Accident?
Head-on collisions belong to a category of accidents called road-departure crashes. A common cause of head-on collisions is a motorist crossing into the opposite lane on a two-lane road, as happens when passing another car. Head-on collisions are more common in rural areas, where two-lane roads are more prevalent.
Other situations in which head-on collisions can occur include the following:
Inclement Weather – A driver passes into the lane of opposite-moving traffic due to inclement weather conditions.
Careless Left Turn – A driver turns left without heeding oncoming traffic.
Drunk, Drowsy, or Distracted Driving – A driver passes into the wrong lane due to falling asleep, driving while under the influence of alcohol, or engaging in distracted driving behaviors, such as texting while driving.
While head-on collisions make up a small number of all accidents, they are responsible for a disproportionate number of fatalities. Injuries resulting from a head-on collision can be severe and include injuries to the brain, back and spinal cord, whiplash, and broken bones, among other less-serious dangers.
If you’ve been injured in a head-on collision, you may be facing a difficult recovery. If someone else was responsible for your accident, you should not have to bear the financial burden imposed by the wreck.
Getting a Full and Fair Settlement
After an accident, it can be disheartening to learn that the insurance company may not be interested in getting you the best settlement possible. Insurance companies are often more concerned with protecting their profit margins than with getting you a fair payout.
