The Risk of Head-On Car Accidents

Every day there are numerous head-on car accidents which most commonly occur at intersections. Since these accidents often involve a great impact, they account for a higher percentage of fatalities than most other types of car accidents. Oftentimes, an innocent driver is operating his or her car through an intersection with the intention of going straight. An inattentive driver coming from the opposite direction negligently makes a left-hand turn, striking the car which had the right of way. 

Head-on car accidents also occur because of a driver’s inattentiveness, their failure to obey the rules of the road and stop at red lights, stop signs, yield signs, or due to the driver’s intoxication. Freeway head-on car accidents are particularly dangerous due to the high speed of the vehicles. The high-speed nature of these accidents often results in a high percentage of catastrophic and life-altering injures. Moreover, despite the fact that an innocent driver or passenger may be wearing a seat belt, the force of the impact from a head-on collision is regularly so great that the seat belt simply does not offer sufficient protection. Further, there have been numerous reported incidents of airbags failing to deploy.

Head-on car accidents cause approximately 10% of all car accident fatalities. Our firm of New York head on car accident lawyers has handled numerous cases involving serious injuries as a result of a head-on collision. We’ve been practicing in New York since 1992. With over 22 years of experience, we’ve secured numerous million-dollar verdicts and settlements for our clients. We believe that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, and we are here to help you receive justice. 

As an example of a head-on car accident case, our firm recently obtained $1.75 million dollars on behalf of a client who received serious orthopedic injuries and disfigurement from a head-on collision caused by a young man using his father’s car. Since the liability of the operator was so clear, and our client’s injuries were so severe, we were able to intimidate the responsible insurance carrier with the threat of an excess verdict. If obtained, this would render them personally liable for any excess verdict or judgment above the available insurance coverage. As part of our investigation, we made inquires into the assets of the defendants and discovered that they were significant. This rendered them personally at risk of losing their assets if we obtained a judgment in an amount greater than their bodily injury coverage. This strategy was successful, and we were able to resolve this case for the full insurance policy limits in a little more than one year.

Like any serious injury case, we retain the appropriate expert head-on car accident lawyers to maximize your recoveries such as accident reconstructionists, engineers, economists, vocational experts, and life care planners to prove liability and maximize our client’s financial recovery.

If you have been seriously injured in a head-on collision or lost a loved one to a motor vehicle accident such as car accidents caused by drunken drivers, rear impact accidents, or, a serious car accident. Please contact us; we will help you receive justice for your injury.
