Head-On Collision Claims in the San Fernando Valley
SFV Car Accident Lawyer - Call (818) 783-8446
Have you been involved in a head-on collision? A head-on collision is when
the front end of two vehicles crash into each other. If you sustained
injuries in a head-on collision that was someone else's fault, you
have the legal right to seek restitution for any damages. When it comes to
car accident injuries, three different factors can play a major role: the speed which
the cars were traveling, where you were sitting in the vehicle and the
point of impact in the accident. When the point of impact is head-on,
the possible injuries sustained tend to be more severe. Each type of accident
affects the driver and passengers differently.
If you know the kind of impact that a head-on collision can have, it will
only help you as you work to recover the full compensation that you deserve.
As an experienced San Fernando Valley personal injury lawyer, I understand
the physics behind the various kinds of car crashes and I am familiar
with accident reconstruction. If you or a loved one has been injured in
a head-on car accident, be sure to contact my firm as soon as possible.
Types of Injuries Sustained in a Head-On Car Crash
Some accidents are more serious than others and end with loss of life.
With head-on car crashes, the fatality rate is considerably higher than
in other types of car accidents. In fact, federal statistics show that
head-on collisions are 10% more likely to be
fatal. Car accidents can also cause a wide variety of
catastrophic injuries as well as sprains, strains, fractures, contusions, abrasions and lacerations.
The most common head-on car accident injuries include:
- Herniated Disks
- Head Injuries
- Neck Injuries
- Back Injuries
- Knee Injuries
- Rotator Cuff Injuries
- Brachial Plexus Injuries
The majority of head-on collisions could be avoided if it were not for
driver negligence. These types of accidents are often the result of someone
falling asleep at the wheel and drifting across the center median into
oncoming traffic. Head-on collisions are also caused by several other
factors such as turning into oncoming traffic, driving too fast into a turn, or
driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. If it is found that the other driver's carelessness
and negligence caused the accident, we will help you hold them accountable
for their actions. In California, car accident victims are able to request
compensation from the liable party for medical costs, property damage,
lost wages, pain and suffering, physical therapy expenses, loss of quality
of life, disability, and any other mental or physical damage that they
have suffered. Don't get hit twice! Seek our help with the financial
recovery process in order to ensure that you receive the full settlement
that you are legally entitled to.
