Miami Head-On Car Accident Lawyers
Dedicated Representation for Victims & Their Loved Ones
If you suffered injuries or you lost a loved one as a result of a head-on collision and you need legal assistance, the skilled car accident lawyers of Greenberg, Stone & Urbano are ready to assist you.
For obvious reasons, head-on car crashes are considered one of the deadliest types of accidents. Typically, the injuries caused by this type of collision are devastating, often resulting in traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, or death.
Head-on accidents happen when two vehicles crash against each other with their front ends colliding directly or at an angle. Given the force of two cars moving in opposite directions and colliding with one another, these are the deadliest type of car accidents.
Moreover, when the accident is between an average family car and a heavier vehicle, catastrophic injuries or deaths are likely to result. Although rural roads see a great amount of head-on collisions, they also occur on highways.
Some of the most common causes of head-on car collisions include:
- A vehicle trying to pass another by going on the opposing lanes
- A car failing to properly turn a curve and heading onto oncoming traffic
- A car drifting across into the opposite lanes
- Weather conditions like snow, rain, and ice
Considering the gravity of the injuries typically caused by these accidents, it is usually advised that you take any evasive action you can to avoid a head-on collision when you see a vehicle coming directly at you, including going onto the side of the road. However, sometimes it does not matter what you do, and you just can't avoid the collision.
Protect Your Legal Rights
If you or a loved one suffered injuries in a head-on crash in Miami or any of the surrounding areas, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages.
While every case is different, typical damages include:
- Damaged property
- Time you missed at work
- Hospital bills
If someone dies as a result of this type of accident, the relatives of the deceased person may also have a right to money damages.
You must remember that the lawyers and the insurance company for the at-fault person/party are likely to approach you with offers to settle the case. Typically, these settlements are offered under terms that are unlikely to benefit you. Remember, these insurance companies and lawyers do not represent you and are only trying to obtain the best results for their client.
Consequently, if you are involved in a head-on collision, you should immediately hire an experienced law firm to represent your interests and protect your rights. The Miami car accident lawyers at Greenberg, Stone & Urbano want to help you get rightful compensation if you were involved in a head-on car accident.
Injuries Caused by Head-On Collisions
The injuries resulting from these crashes are typically catastrophic and usually include traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries that may result in paralysis. These types of serious injuries may cause you to miss extended periods from work, to get medical bills that keep accumulating, and to need expensive medical equipment and rehabilitation therapy. Moreover, many of these car accidents end up causing death.
The Aftermath of a Head-On Collision
Head-on car accidents can change your life completely. If you were involved in a car accident, would you know what to do? How would you find legal help and who would stand up for you during those difficult times? How would you pay your medical expenses, as well as rehabilitation therapy or medical equipment? Would you know the lasting effects or needs of a head-on collision accident victim? How would you pay for the repair of your vehicle or buy a new one if it is declared a total loss? How about the time you missed from work? If the insurance adjusters call you, what would you tell them? What if you end up permanently disabled?
