Advocating for You: Personal Injury & Head-on Collision Lawyer

Head-on collisions are among the most dangerous types of motor vehicle accidents that occur on the road. Normally, these accidents involve two cars that collide front-end to front-end with one another. Most of the time, these accidents occur because one of the parties was not driving in the correct lane or was simply not obeying the flow of traffic. The reason these car accidents are so dangerous is due to the physics (velocity, force, etc.) of the vehicles involved before the collision occurs. Because of this, the injuries that result from this class of car accidents are typically far more serious and life-altering than other more common subtypes.

If you have recently been involved in a head-on collision, then you should contact the Ward Law Group as soon as possible. Hiring an experienced head-on collision lawyer will be essential to achieving maximum compensation for your case. These accidents may be life-changing, and in many cases, no amount of money will fully undo the damages sustained to the victim and their loved ones. That said, compensation will still certainly help with tangible (and occasionally intangible) expenses such as accrued medical bills. Enlisting a strong team with decades of legal experience—such as the Ward Law Group—will make the litigation process much more manageable, and in turn, reduce the typical frustrations associated with filing a claim.

In addition to providing legal services to English-speaking citizens, the Ward Law Group also specializes in catering to the Spanish-speaking community. Don’t let your native language keep you from getting the legal counsel you deserve. Contact the Ward Law Group today!

Common Types of Head-on Collision Claims that We Settle

Roughly 13% of all rural head-on collisions result in a fatality. Of course, a head-on collision does not require both cars to be in motion. One car may be stationary, or both cars may slam into one another. That said, accidents are generally much more dangerous when they result from two moving vehicles.

Here are some common causes of head-on collisions:

  • Distracted Driving: This cause of head-on collision accidents became much more prevalent with the advent of the smartphone. This is particularly true for the younger demographic. Of course, adjusting radio volumes, eating, and talking to passengers can also account for sources of distracted driving.
  • Fatigued Driving: It is not uncommon for head-on collisions to happen at night, especially when one or both drivers are suffering from sleep deprivation. Studies show that fatigued drivers may be just as dangerous as drunk drivers.
  • Drunk Driving: Another very common cause of head-on collisions. In fact, this is the most common cause of this car accident subtype.

Of course, these are just common causes of head-on collisions. Other contributing factors may include speeding and/or running red lights, etc.

Types of Head-on Collision Accident Injuries

As with most car accidents, head-on collisions often lead to serious personal injuries. This is especially true for cases where both cars are driving at top speeds in opposing directions. Typically, this is how the worst personal injuries occur. Here are just a few examples of personal injuries that can result from a head-on collision:

  • Brain Damage
  • Dismemberment
  • Broken Bones
  • Lacerations
  • Large Bruises
  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Herniated Discs
  • Whiplash

However, these represent just a few of the injury types that can occur. For example, this list doesn’t begin to cover intangibles, such as psychological distress. Some forms of psychological damage that can occur from head-on collisions include:

  • Insomnia (or trouble sleeping)
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Memory Loss
  • Difficulty Concentrating

Types of Head-on Collision Accident Compensation

If you are involved in a car accident—even if you are not injured—then your first step after calling emergency responders should involve contacting an experienced legal team. If you are injured (and, usually, victims of head-on collisions are), then it is all the more important to follow this step. The earlier you get in touch with an expert legal team, the higher in value that your potential compensation claim will be. Here are just a few examples of compensation that your legal team will fight for in court:

  • Medical Bills: Hopefully, you were not injured in a head-on collision, but the chances are very high regardless. When you are injured in a high-force accident such as this, you need compensation for your medical bills, hospital stays, physical therapy visits, etc.
  • Loss of Earnings & Work Capacity: This covers two things. For one, it covers the wages lost from your recovery period. Secondly, you have a permanent injury, then you may be entitled to compensation for your inability to work at maximum capacity.
  • Psychological Trauma: Depending on your specific case, you may be entitled to compensation if the accident led to significant emotional or psychological trauma.
  • Property Damage: Property damage boils down to a lot of different things. This compensation takes your car, any of your personal belongings in the car, and even your clothes into consideration.

The Ward Law Group is famous for their successful track record with handling high-profile cases, their consistency, and decades of experience. If you suffered a head-on collision, then do not hesitate to contact us today. Whether you speak Spanish or English, we will be happy to fight for the compensation that you deserve.

Maximizing Your Claim: Immediate Steps to Take After a Head-on Collision

If you or any of your passengers are able, you should always start by documenting every single detail of the accident. The good thing is, nearly everyone carries a camera in their back pocket these days, but you may have to rely on someone else if your phone was damaged in the crash. Smartphone cameras are much higher quality than they used to be, so take advantage. Document everything from personal injuries to property damage and witness statements.

If possible, you should also try to obtain a copy of the accident report from the police. In addition, record any expenditures and receipts associated with the accident. These bills include a slew of different things, but most of them are explained in detail in the section above. Also, you may wish to hold on to the clothes you were wearing after the accident, even if they are beyond repair. All of these elements will help you and your legal team maximize your claim.

Once you satisfy the two conditions above, then it is time to get in touch with an experienced head-on collision attorney. Your legal team will present you with feasible legal avenues to take for your specific case. You will also want to share any evidence that you gathered at the scene of the accident, from receipts as well as from eye witnesses.

All around amazing!

The Ward Law Group made sure that I got the medical care I needed and kept me informed the entire way. They showed that they truly care about their clients.  I only wish I knew about them when my husband was in a car/motorcycle accident last year. Dealing with other lawyers had left me with a negative outlook on the whole process. But it’s safe to say The Ward Law Group restored it.

- Susana L.

Works day & night to take care of you!

I was blessed to have this wonderful team behind me through this journey. Thanks to Ancelys’ and Jany’s hard work, we won the lawsuit.

If anything, I felt it made them work harder. This team is so multifaceted, they were able to help me with every aspect of my case.

We are fortunate to have come across such talented professionals. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

I want to thank accident attorney Jany Martinez-Ward. The whole process was amazing. My car was a total loss and they helped me with that process.
