A head-on collision between two vehicles is typically considered to be the most severe of all vehicle collisions. Even at relatively low speeds, the impact can decimate both vehicles and leave occupants with devastating injuries.
The Dallas vehicle accident attorneys at Guajardo & Marks have years of experience representing clients who have been injured in all types of vehicle accidents. If you have been injured in a head-on collision, we can help you seek compensation to relieve the financial burden you face following the accident.
Fortunately, these accidents are not as common as other types of vehicle collisions, but they are especially dangerous and much more likely to result in fatal injuries when they do occur. Let’s look at where and why head-on collisions might occur.
Most of head-on collisions occur on smaller roads, like those found in rural areas. This is since there is no division between lanes. They might also occur on smaller roads where there are sharp curves and drivers have greater difficulty staying in their own lane.
Head-on collisions can also occur on one-way roads. When a driver is confused and travels the wrong way down a one-way road, they are positioned to cause a head-on collision with another vehicle. These can be extremely dangerous on roads with higher speed limits, such interstates.
Like most types of vehicle accidents, head-on collisions are typically caused by driver negligence (in other words, driver error). Examples include:
The sheer force of a head-on collision can lead to incredibly severe injuries for occupants of both vehicles. These injuries include:
A head-on crash in Dallas can be fatal, or lead to serious injuries. In such a devastating situation, it can become overwhelming to handle the pressure of medical costs, lost earnings, and auto repair. Pain and suffering can be tremendous as well. Fortunately, there are legal answers available.
If you or a loved one was injured in a head-on collision caused by another driver’s mistakes, you might be able to receive compensation for the damages you have suffered. Our attorneys are experienced in handling these types of cases, and we can tell you that these accidents require a specialized approach, including conducting thorough investigations and consulting with expert witnesses. Our attorneys, for example, may consult with vocational experts who can testify as to the financial losses you have experienced and will suffer in the future due to your accident injuries. These cases can be especially complicated, and your attorney should have direct experience and in-depth knowledge of head-on collision cases.
You don’t have to pay for the negligence of another driver. Victims of head-on collisions face medical bills, ongoing care, loss of income, loss of work capacity, and intense pain and suffering. If you were a victim in a head-on collision or if you have lost a family member in a head-on collision, the Dallas vehicle accident attorneys at Guajardo & Marks can help.
