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.
