Why Do Head-On Collisions Occur?
To secure the appropriate compensation following a head-on collision, we will need to prove that the other driver was being reckless or negligent. This is where the Myrtle Beach personal injury lawyers of Law Office of William J. Luse can help.
All drivers owe it to everyone else on the road to be of sound mind and body when operating a vehicle, especially at high rates of speed. If the other driver was under the influence or even driving while tired at the time of the crash, they may be held liable for your injuries and damages that resulted from the collision.
In addition to driving under the influence and fatigued driving, careless or reckless behavior that can lead to a head-on collision includes:
- Distracted driving, such as texting
- Failure to yield the right of way
- Running a stop sign or red light
- Weaving in and out of traffic
- Driving the wrong way down a one-way street
Frequency and Severity of Head-on Collisions
Head-on collisions are one of the least common yet one of the most deadly types of accidents you could be involved in. While they make up less than 3% of annual crashes in the United States, they account for more than 10% of fatalities on the road, according to data from the Insurance Information Institute.
Injuries sustained in a head-on crash are life-changing. They could result in permanent brain damage, disfigurement, broken and fractured bones, or leave you paralyzed for life. These types of serious injuries could potentially result in you losing your job or health insurance. They could result in medical bills piling up very quickly. Having legitimate representation with Law Office of William J. Luse could save you from dealing with financial stress that could potentially worsen your physical health.
The only thing you should be focused on after involvement in such a violent type of incident is yourself. That is why the injury attorneys at Law Office of William J. Luse will make it our mission to represent your best interests so you can focus solely on getting better.
Frequently Asked Questions
What can I be compensated for following a head-on collision?
You may experience exponential losses after being involved in a head-on collision. The physical and psychological damage could have an effect on your life for years after the accident occurs. The Law Office of William J. Luse will fight for you to receive compensation for all of your damages, which may include:
- Outstanding medical bills
- Repairing or replacing your damaged vehicle
- Lost wages from time away from work or losing your job
- Physical and emotional pain resulting from being involved in such a traumatic type of crash
Who will pay for my compensation?
In short, insurance will likely be responsible for any damages you are entitled to. If you are not at fault in the collision, you will most likely receive funds from the other driver’s insurance company. If that driver does not have vehicle insurance or their policy does not cover involvement in a head-on collision, your UM insurance (uninsured motorist coverage) may cover expenses such as medical bills, lost wages, and property damage.
What if I can’t afford a lawyer?
Most people’s first concern after an accident is, how can they afford a lawyer on top of the mounting medical bills and other expenses they’re facing? Law Office of William J. Luse operates on a contingency-fee structure. This means that if we lose the case, representation comes at no cost to you. If and when we secure compensation for you, we would apply a percentage of the awarded funds as payment.
