Head-On Accidents in Alpharetta
Head-On Collision Attorney in Georgia
Whatever the type of crash, serious injuries and even tragic death can ensue. Head-on collisions are particularly intense, however. This sort of accident usually happens when a car wanders past a median or centerline and hits an oncoming vehicle. One can also crash from driving down lanes in the wrong direction. These crashes can also occur from mistimed attempts to pass a car on a two-lane highway. According a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) database, approximately 75% of these crashes happen on rural roads, and 83% of head-on collisions transpired on rural roads made up of two undivided lanes.
Data indicates that certain factors contributed to the driver's mishandling of the vehicle before a head-on crash, which include:
- Falling asleep at the wheel
- Driver Distraction
- Driving Under the Influence/While Intoxicated
- Taking a curve too fast
If someone else's negligence or recklessness has caused a head-on accident, then that means they are at fault for the serious injuries you incurred. You are entitled to full compensation to help you through this rough time.
Common Injuries Caused by Head-On Collisions
As a car makes impact with another oncoming vehicle, the car is forced to a violent stop as the passengers continue forward motion; the driver keeps moving forward into the steering wheel and dashboard. This often can mean serious chest and lower limb injuries. Fractured and dislocated ankles, fractured femurs, as well as dislocated knees or hips can be sustained. Ribs can be broken, and serious spinal cord injuries can result as well. Traumatic brain injuries can also occur.
All these catastrophic injuries mean a great deal of pain and suffering for which you are owed a full settlement. You also are entitled to compensation for steep medical bills for treatment and therapy, and payments for car repair or replacement. Your injuries may further mean you are unable to work, and you should be covered for lost wages as well. You are owed a full award to help relieve the burden of these physical and financial problems.
As with any serious crash, fatalities can also occur. If you have lost someone in a head-on crash, then we can help you successfully file a wrongful death claim to win the award that you are owed. This settlement can help you through this intensely difficult time by covering any medical bills and burial and funeral costs as well.
