Head-On Collisions

Fighting for the Justice You Deserve

Head-on collisions are some of the most dangerous types of car accidents that can occur. Also referred to as “front impact accidents,” these crashes can arise in cases where two vehicles are traveling in opposite directions and strike each other at the front end. Even when vehicle occupants are wearing their seat belts, head-on collisions can result in catastrophic injuries due to the force of impact — and unfortunately, fatality is not uncommon in these types of accidents.

If you were hurt in a head-on car accident due to another driver’s carelessness, it’s vital to have the representation of an experienced personal injury attorney who can advocate for your rights and recover your rightful compensation. At The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP, we know how a car crash can alter the course of your life. Our legal team is prepared to fight on your behalf to hold the negligent driver responsible and obtain the justice you deserve.

Aggressive Advocacy to Recover Maximum Compensation

Although there are many ways a head-on collision can happen, negligence is typically the cause. For instance, another driver may have crossed over the median into oncoming traffic, or defective road conditions may be to blame. In some cases, a vehicle manufacturer may be held liable if a defective steering wheel or other component of the car malfunctioned unexpectedly. Regardless of the reason for the accident, it’s critical to have a personal injury attorney by your side who can protect your legal rights and pursue the maximum compensation you are eligible to receive.

At The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP, we represent victims who have been injured in head-on collisions caused by a variety of factors, including:

Relentless Representation for Head-On Collisions

The physical, emotional, and financial impact of a head-on collision can be significant. These types of accidents can result in severe injuries, including broken bones, spinal cord damage, amputation, traumatic brain injuries, internal bleeding, paralysis, and permanent disability. Often, extensive medical care is required — and in some cases, lifelong treatment may be necessary. You may also need to take a considerable amount of time off work as you recover from your injuries or be unable to return to the workplace at all. It’s essential to have a skillful personal injury attorney who can fight to hold the negligent driver accountable for your monetary losses, as well as your pain and suffering.
