There is no type of car accident that can result in more serious injuries than a head-on collision. The velocity of the impact doubles and the drivers and passengers inside either car are subjected to violent physical forces. Even when wearing seat belts and protected by an air bag, head-on collisions at highway speeds often result in catastrophic injuries or death.
Head-on collisions are not random events. Rarely are both drivers found to share some of the fault of the crash. Head-on crashes are nearly always the result of negligence on the part of one driver who made an illegal move into an oncoming lane of traffic.

If you were injured while riding as a passenger in a car responsible for causing the head-on collision, you are entitled to seek full and fair money damages for your medical costs, lost earnings, and pain and suffering related to your injuries.

Do You Really Need an Attorney in an Obvious Case of Negligence?
Several studies show that injured individuals who are represented by an attorney receive over twice the compensation than individuals without a lawyer receive. Insurance companies may realize they are liable for paying damages, but that doesn't mean they pay the full and fair amount you are entitled to.
Over the years, Tooher Wocl & Leydon, LLC, has represented thousands of people injured in many types of motor vehicle accidents, including head-on collisions. We prepare every claim for trial, in the event the case cannot settle for a full and fair amount out of court. When necessary, we work with independent professional experts to investigate and prepare the strongest case possible for a jury.
