Head-on collisions are serious car crashes that typically result in severe injury, trauma, or death. While they may not be the most common type of car accident, they have the highest fatality rate and are widely considered to be the most devastating kind of car crash. If you’re lucky enough to walk away from a head-on collision, chances are you’ve still sustained some kind of serious injury. To make matters worse, the insurance company is probably trying to downplay the severity of your injuries or maybe even trying to pin some of the blame on you. You’re overwhelmed, in pain, and ready to just accept whatever offer they’ll give you.
Don’t fall into their trap. Car accident attorney Zach Herschensohn knows the games insurance companies play, and he’s not afraid to stand up to them to demand a realistic settlement offer on your behalf. Although he’s a trained and qualified negotiator, if the insurance company won’t budge, he’s perfectly willing to fight for your needs in court. That’s because he’s a respected trial attorney who knows how to build a strong case that will get you real results.
What are the common causes of head-on collisions?
Like most car accidents, head-on collisions are usually caused by the negligence of another driver. Some of the most common causes of head-on collisions include:
- Distracted driving (e.g. texting and driving)
- Impaired driving (drunk driving, drugged driving)
- Unsafe passing
- Failure to adjust to hazardous weather conditions (snow, ice, rain, fog, etc.)
- Driving the wrong way down a road or highway ramp
- Drowsy driving or driving while fatigued
- Failure to adjust to dangerous or faulty road conditions
- Not fixing mechanical defects
- Ignoring traffic signals and signs
Whether a texting driver crossed over the center lane and smashed into your front end or a drunk driver lost control of their vehicle and crashed into you head-on, Kent car accident attorney Zach Herschensohn can hold them accountable.
What are common head-on collision injuries?
While many head-on collisions result in death, those who aren’t killed often sustain very serious injuries. A few of the most common head-on collision injuries are:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Head injuries
- Neck injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Fractured or broken bones
- Internal bleeding or damage to organs
- Airbag and seatbelt injuries (facial injuries, abdominal injuries)
- Cuts, bruises, and burns
A head-on collision may only last a few seconds, but the consequences can last a lifetime. If you’ve been injured in a head-on crash, you may need extensive physical therapy, long-term care, medical devices, prescriptions, surgeries, and more. All that costs a lot, and if you’re forced to pay for those expenses out of pocket, you may quickly find yourself in financial ruin. If someone you love was killed in a fatal head-on collision, our law firm can also assist you with a wrongful death claim. Get an experienced Kent car accident lawyer on your side and get the financial compensation you need and deserve.
