After A Head-On Crash, We Can Help
Car accident attorneys who don’t back down
Head-on collisions can lead to some of the most serious and life-altering injuries a person can sustain in a car accident. Front-facing impact crashes can often damage areas of the body that control movement and thought — head, neck, spine, and brain.
If you or someone you love has been in a bad head-on collision, it is important that you consult with Hoover Rogers Law, LLP to get a full understanding of how much money you will need to make and maintain your recovery.
Our law firm offers free injury case evaluations to people hurt in Wichita Falls and Lawton area accidents. Contact us now to schedule yours.
Frequent causes of head-on collisions
The risk for head-on collisions is often influenced by roadway infrastructure design and individual driver errors or negligence.
Most head-on crashes happen on roadways that make them difficult to avoid. Roads that present the highest risk for head-on accidents usually have narrow lanes, sharp curves, no separation of lanes for opposite traveling traffic, and high speeds.
However, there is no excuse for a driver to drift into the oncoming lane and cause a head-on crash. Motorists are responsible for slowing down and exercising caution on dangerous roads. Often, head-on crashes are the result of:
- Drunk driving
- Wrong-way driving (driving in the opposite lane of traffic)
- Texting while driving, distracted driving
- Unsafe passing
- Fatigued or drowsy driving
- General confusion (for example, an elderly driver going the wrong way down a highway)
- Over-correction or swerving into oncoming traffic to avoid things like an icy patch, standing water, an animal or child in the road
Head-on crash injuries
Very few people are back to themselves right after a head-on collision. Typically, victims in this type of crash spend months healing from physical pain before they can begin the hard process of rebuilding their strength, brain, or motor functions.
Without an accurate estimate of your past, current, and future medical expenses, there is no way you can get the maximum compensation for your injuries.
The attorneys at Hoover Rogers Law are knowledgeable about all the steps, treatments, therapies, equipment, and costs necessary to heal after an accident. We can make a suitable estimate for you and demand you get the money you deserve.
Among the most common head-on crash-related injuries are:
- Broken leg bones like tibia, fibula, or femur
- Head injuries like concussions, contusions, or other Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)
- Neck injuries
- Herniated spinal discs
- Mental health issues like Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or otherwise increased levels of anxiety and depression
- Knee trauma
- Partial or full paralysis
- Loss of brain function
- Constant head, neck, and back pain
- Numbness and other nerve damage
Don’t settle for less money than you deserve
After a head-on crash, you’re most likely out of work. With no money coming in to pay monthly expenses, finding the cash to cover the medical bills piling up is difficult.
For many accident victims, this is a stressful and chaotic time. Everything from morning routines to carefully laid future plans are up in the air.
It’s at this point where the insurance adjusters start coming around looking for any reason to reduce or reject your claim. You’re struggling with bills, so when they make a settlement offer in the thousands, it may seem like a lot of money. It may even feel like a lifeline.
It isn’t until after you accept the money that you come to realize that “lifeline” may not even cover your emergency medical expenses, let alone your full recovery.
Learn how the law applies to you
Hoover Rogers Law, LLP does not accept too-small settlements. We would rather dig deeper into your case than take an insulting offer from the insurance companies.
Our attorneys conduct thorough crash investigations that reveal important evidence to support your claim. We build strong cases that the insurance companies can’t ignore. If they try, we bring them to trial where a judge can force them to pay what will most likely be a higher amount than if they had just settled in the first place.
