Without a complete understanding of the long-term effects of your injuries, it is challenging to negotiate a settlement on your own. That’s why it is crucial to reach out to an attorney after a head-on crash.
Many people think about the immediate costs of their injuries after a car crash. This is a good starting point when it’s time to negotiate, but you should also think long-term. For example, most cases of whiplash resolve themselves in short order. Still, the strain caused by a head-on crash can permanently decrease earning ability and a need for lifelong medical care in some cases.
Before considering an insurance company’s settlement offer, you must know what costs you will incur. We’ll work with medical experts to help calculate your damages’ complete and accurate value, including future expenses.
You should also consider 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 seems when they first call you, they have one goal: 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.
The lawyers at Oronoz & Ericsson Injury Lawyers have gone up against many insurance companies over the years, and we’re no stranger to these companies’ shady tactics. We’ll use our experience to help get you the relief you deserve.
You need an advocate whose only goal is to meet your needs and secure the compensation you need. We will use medical records, police reports, witness reports, and your account of the accident to figure out what happened and how the other party may have caused it. This gives us a solid foundation to handle your claim.
While most personal injury cases settle outside of court, we will never forget that taking your case to court is an option. If the insurance company doesn’t offer a fair amount, we won’t encourage you to settle to close the case. Whether that means fighting for you in negotiations or the courtroom, we are on your side.
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 can get for you. You can come to a risk-free consultation, during which we will assess the merits of your case and give you our honest advice.
A wide range of factors contributes to head-on car collisions. Causes include:
• Impaired drivers; crashes involving impaired drivers account for nearly 30% of all traffic-related deaths in the United States
• Poor road conditions or low visibility that makes it difficult to see road lines
• Fatigued drivers
• Passing a vehicle on the left when it isn’t safe to do so
• Failing to notice or abide by lane markings and road signs
• Distracted driving
Head-on collision injuries can leave victims with lifelong pain, reduced or no mobility, and limited earning abilities. Injuries that may occur in a head-on crash include:
• Ejection from a vehicle
• Broken bones
• Cuts and scrapes
• Internal injuries
• Neck and spinal cord injuries
• Traumatic brain injury
• Injuries caused by friction
These are just a fraction of the injuries common in head-on crashes. That’s why it is so important to seek medical attention after a collision. A doctor can provide a complete 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.
