The forces that act on drivers and passengers in a head-on collision can result in tragic injuries. Even in your darkest hour, the attorneys at the Law Office of James H. Guest are there for you, helping you at every stage of the legal process, handling all of your needs and making sure the compensation you receive is fair.
Though rear-end and head-on accidents are both serious types of motor vehicle crashes, each can have a very different outcome that can greatly affect the amount of compensation a victim or a victim's family seeks from the at-fault party.
Like rear-end crashes, head-on collisions are often the result of one driver's negligent or reckless actions. From distractions and fatigue to intoxication and other impairments, head-on collisions occur because something causes one vehicle to cross the centerline, which results in a catastrophic collision with another vehicle.
Even with seat belts, air bag deployment and other safety precautions, serious and catastrophic injuries are still possible, leaving drivers and passengers in need of immediate and extensive medical attention. Unfortunately, not all head-on collisions end this way. Many are fatal collisions that can result in steep burial and funeral costs in addition to tremendous grief, loss of companionship, loss of financial support, and pain and suffering.
After the accident, an investigation will be started to determine who was at fault. Once this is determined, we can take action against the party whose negligence caused your injuries.
