Head-On Car Accident

Head-On Car Accident

  • Duty of Care in Driving: When driving, there's a responsibility called "duty of care" to stay in your side of the road and avoid causing harm to others on the road.
  • Nature of Head-On Collisions: Head-on collisions are among the most dangerous car accidents, occurring when a vehicle leaves its lane and crashes into the front of another vehicle. These incidents often result in severe injuries and damage due to the high speeds involved.
  • Oncoming Traffic and Driving the Wrong Way:Head-on accidents commonly happen when a vehicle mistakenly enters the wrong lane and collides with oncoming traffic. Distractions play a significant role in causing such incidents.
  • Personal Injury Lawyer for Compensation: If you've been injured in a head-on car accident due to someone else's negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. A personal injury lawyer can help you pursue claims for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. If the case doesn't settle, legal action may be necessary.
  • Boston has its fair share of car accidents. Once of the scariest types of car accidents are head-on collisions. They generally happen at very high speeds. Serious injuries and property damage typically results. These crashes generally happen when the front of one vehicle negligently leaves its lane and hits the front of another motor vehicle. They can be caused by many factors, and frequently they are due to distraction. A head-on car accident usually means the occupants of the involved vehicles suffered serious personal injuries.

    These crashes typically cause extensive damage to the motor vehicles involved in the crash. As a Boston head-on car accident lawyer, our office is experienced with these claims and can assist if you were injured in one of these car crashes. 

    What Type of Compensation Is Available for These Cases?

    If someone negligently injured you in a head-on accident, you may be entitled to compensation. This compensation may include payment for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. The claim is presented to the insurance company for the driver that caused the head-on crash. If it settles, that insurance company will pay the settlement, but if it does not settle, then a lawsuit needs to be filed. The case will need to be tried to verdict in front of a judge and jury.

    What types of injuries result?

    It really depends on the type and severity of impact that determines just how serious the personal injuries are that result from a head-on car accident. These crashes cause soft tissue injuries such as strains and sprains, as well as more serious injuries such as broken bones that may require surgery. It is not uncommon for these crashes to cause even scarring and possible disfigurement to those involved in the crash. It is important after these types of motor vehicle accidents to receive prompt and proper medical treatment. By doing so, not only do you help yourself recover from the injuries, but also that will allow for proper medical documentation of all the injuries the accident caused you to sustain.

    Sometimes these accidents are so severe that not only can serious personal injuries result, but also sometimes post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) results from these violent crashes. Frequently these mental and emotional injuries can be far worse than any personal injuries that result. The reason is that they frequently take extensive time and therapy to resolve which makes them very tricky, if not impossible, to recover completely from.
