Head-on car crashes, along will rollover crashes, are among the most serious of all types of car accidents. Two cars that collide while moving at 50 miles per hour is similar in effect to one car driving into a brick wall at 50 miles per hour. Not only do these types of accidents often leave multiple totaled cars in their wake, they often cause serious injuries or fatalities.
In many head-on collisions and car accidents, the liable driver is distracted, fatigued, or under the influence. The fallout can be devastating for victims, but with the help of a head-on car crash attorney, they can seek compensation for their injuries, lost wages, and other losses.

While it is recommended that you contact a personal injury attorney for any car accident caused by another driver, it is particularly crucial to reach out to an attorney after a head-on crash. These collisions often have serious consequences that can last years or decades. Without a full understanding of the long-term effects of your injuries, it is impossible to negotiate a settlement on your own.
Many people simply think about the immediate costs associated with their injuries after a car crash. This is a good starting point when it’s time to negotiate, but you have to go beyond that and think long-term. Consider whiplash from a head-on collision. While most cases of whiplash resolve themselves in short order, the strain caused by a head-on crash can cause partial loss of mobility and chronic pain for the rest of your life. These side effects may lead to a permanent decrease in earning ability, a long-term need for pain medication, and lifelong medical care needs. Before considering an insurance company’s settlement offer, you have to know what costs you are likely to incur in the future.
You should also consider the fact that you cannot trust the insurance company to act in your best interests. Insurance companies can lose a lot of money after a head-on collision, particularly if it leads to fatalities or severe injuries. That doesn’t stop them from trying to convince victims to accept a low settlement offer. No matter how thoughtful or kind an adjuster appears to be when they first call you, they have one goal in mind: to pay you as little as possible. In too many situations, victims of a car crash caused by another person’s negligence have been left in debt and without legal recourse after using their small settlement to pay medical bills.
You need an advocate whose only goal is to meet your needs and secure the compensation you deserve. The lawyers at Oronoz & Ericsson Injury Lawyers have gone up against many insurance companies over the years, and we’re no stranger to the shady tactics that these companies use. We will use medical records, police reports, witness reports, and your own retelling of the accident to figure out what happened and how the other party may have caused it. This gives us a solid foundation from which to start negotiations.
While almost all personal injury cases are settled outside of court, we will never forget that court is an option. If the insurance company won’t offer a fair amount, we won’t encourage you to settle just to close the case. We are on your side, whether that means fighting for you at the negotiating table or in the courtroom.
Like many of our clients, you may be worried about legal fees associated with a personal injury case. At Oronoz & Ericsson Injury Lawyers, we work on a contingency basis. What we collect is based on how much we are able to get for you. You can come to a risk-free consultation, during which we will asset the merits of your case and give you our honest advice.
A wide range of factors contribute to head-on car collisions. Causes include:
Head-on collision injuries can leave victims with lifelong pain, limited or no mobility, and restricted earning abilities. Injuries that may occur in a head-on crash include:
These are just a fraction of the injuries that commonly occur in head-on crashes. That’s why it is so important to seek medical attention after a crash. A doctor can provide a full medical assessment and identify issues that would otherwise go unnoticed for days or weeks. This allows you to begin treatment promptly and perhaps improve the outcome of your injuries.
If you have been involved in a crash, we know you have questions about your legal options and whether or not you can get a settlement for your head-on collision. During your free consultation, you can ask questions and start to figure out which option best suits you. We strive to help every client get the compensation they deserve after a crash.
