Head-on Collisions

A head-on collision is one of the most dangerous and terrifying kinds of automobile accidents. Head-on collisions can lead to numerous catastrophic injuries or even death. Injuries caused from head-on collisions can substantially change a victim’s life, as well as the lives of their families. Monetary costs associated with head-on collisions can also be substantial. Medical costs, lost wages, rehabilitative services, and even long-term care and equipment can bring devastating financial consequences to you and your loved ones after a head-on collision.

Though head-on collisions account for only a small percentage of auto accidents, they result in 10% of fatalities. Even if someone does not die as a result of a head-on collision, they can be profoundly injured, such as suffering broken bones, brain injuries, and even paralysis. Recovery times can be quite lengthy for injuries caused by head-on collisions. Victims may also miss extended periods of work or even forced to leave the job market altogether, which can create a severe financial strain on their lives.

Head-on collisions can be the result of negligent driving, poorly maintained roads, poorly marked roadways, construction, or many other scenarios. Having an attorney on your side at this time to help figure out who is at fault and liable for your injuries can be immensely helpful. Often, a negligent driver is the cause of head-on collisions. Drivers may be distracted by texting, radios, eating, or even under the influence of drugs or alcohol. However, sometimes other entities, such as construction companies or municipalities are at fault for the accident. An attorney can help you navigate the confusing relationships between organizations and individuals, as well as the confusing law regarding who can be held liable for injuries. A Massachusetts head-on collision attorney can also fight to ensure that you are given access to the medical and rehabilitative services that you need, as well as the accommodations from your employer to which you are entitled.

In addition to the medical and financial tolls that head-on collisions can cause, substantial stress is also a common result of head-on collisions. Dealing with insurance agents, doctors, hospitals, bills, and many other people and organizations can be confusing and overwhelming. Having a compassionate and organized Massachusetts head-on collision attorney on your side can help ameliorate much of the stress and confusion.
