Do I Need A Lawyer After A Head-On Collision?
Although head-on collisions account for a small percentage of car accidents, this type of car accident tends to be statistically deadlier and cause much more damage than other types of collisions. This is because of physics, that is to say that even at a low speed, let’s say two cars going at 25 mph, will cause 50 mph impact as the velocities add up. As a result, head-on collisions constitute the type of accident where you most likely have injuries, have property damages, miss work and you should consider hiring an attorney.
Head-on collisions can occur for a variety of reasons. For example, two cars may crash against each other because of driving impairment or a driver is driving under the influence or driving with fatigue. Bad weather and confusion can also cause drivers to use the wrong way on a street and collide. Also, although it is less common, faulty traffic signals or poor road conditions can lead to a head on collision.
An experienced personal injury attorney is able to conduct an investigation and determine liability accordingly. For example, at times a third vehicle may have contributed to the head on collision in which case a third party may be liable or at least in part liable. At times, the third party is a government entity at fault for faulty signage or improperly maintaining their roads.
