Fighting for accident victims throughout Ohio and western Pennsylvania
These types of car accidents often cause very serious and sometimes fatal injuries. Two vehicles colliding head-on, especially at high speeds, create a devastating force of impact. Survivors may experience a life-changing injury. The car accident attorneys at Gervelis Law Firm fight to help victims get the compensation they need and deserve.
There are different ways a head-on collision can happen. A car may cross over a double line into oncoming traffic or swerve to avoid an obstacle in the road. Traveling too fast around a sharp curve can result in a head-on collision, as can traveling the wrong way down a one-way road. Some drivers simply fail to observe and follow traffic signs and signals.
But head-on collisions don’t just happen. They are almost always caused by a negligent driver. Examples of negligence that can cause a head-on collision include driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs, drowsy driving and distracted driving. In some cases, the fault may lie with a defective car part, such as a tire that blows out.
Recovering compensation after a head-on collision can be difficult, as negligent parties often don’t accept responsibility for what happened. And insurance companies look for any excuse to pay you as little as possible. In fact, they may even suggest that you were somehow at fault for the accident.
