McKinney Head on Collisions Accident Lawyer

Representation for Head-On Collision Victims in Collin County

Of the different types of car accidents that may take place in Texas and throughout the United States, head on collisions are the most dangerous, with a significantly increased chance of fatality. These accidents often take place at high speeds, and most notably, the vehicles are proceeding in opposite directions, which greatly increases the forces involved. Drivers and passengers may suffer severe injuries, including traumatic brain injuries (TBI), even with the protection of vehicle safety systems such as seat belts and airbags. In many cases, victims may struggle to determine how to move forward after being injured in these types of accidents, especially when they require extensive medical care and rehabilitation or experience issues that affect their ability to return to work, limit the types of activities they can perform, and cause significant physical pain and emotional trauma.

Following a head on collision, it is important to seek legal help as soon as possible. One of the reasons that time is of the essence is that evidence from the crash scene and involved vehicles need to be preserved. Many of these types of crashes require a crash reconstruction expert, and this aforementioned evidence is necessary for the expert to perform their reconstruction.

Causes of Head On Collisions

Frontal-impact car accidents are almost always caused by driver negligence or gross negligence. Factors such as distracted driving, drunk driving, or driver fatigue may affect a person's ability to stay in their lane, and a driver may wander into oncoming traffic and strike other vehicles. A driver who is speeding or driving recklessly may lose control of their vehicle, or they may fail to notice other cars or trucks in their path or be unable to react in time to avoid a head on accident.

To establish fault for a head on collision, our lawyers will obtain credible evidence evidence to prove the other driver is at fault. This may include retaining a crash reconstruction expert to reconstruct the collision sequence, not to mention obtaining police reports, eyewitness testimony, dash and body cam video, video footage from nearby surveillance cameras, or data from the vehicles' event data recorders.

Common Injuries in Head On Accidents

Drivers and passengers may suffer multiple types of catastrophic injuries in a frontal-impact collision. These may include traumatic brain injuries, neck and spine injuries, internal organ damage, broken bones, and severe lacerations resulting in scarring and disfigurement. Due to the high speeds and forceful impacts that are often involved in these cases, head on collisions may result in the wrongful death of one or more people.

Because the injuries in these situations can be severe, extensive medical treatment may be needed. This may involve transportation to a hospital in an ambulance, emergency surgery, long periods of hospitalization, additional corrective surgeries, and ongoing physical therapy and other forms of rehabilitative care. If an injury resulted in a permanent disability, a victim may require prosthetics, assistive devices, and home modifications, and the activities they will be able to perform at work or at home may be severely limited. The costs of all of these forms of treatment can add up quickly, resulting in hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical expenses. To help clients, we develop a plan for the client to receive needed medical treatment from top doctors and therapists (including specialists) to address orthopedic injuries, concussions/traumatic brain injuries, and any other physical or emotional problems our clients are facing.

In addition to the financial impact of an injury, a person and their family will be likely to experience significant physical and emotional pain and suffering.
