Head-On Accident

Head-On Collisions Lawyers in San Francisco

Representing Victims of Car Accidents Throughout California - (888) 831-8448

Being involved in any type of car accident is a stressful, frightening, and painful. A head-on accident is the most likely to result in catastrophic injuries. Head-on collisions involve two moving vehicles, often traveling at high speeds, colliding frontally with tremendous forces. As both vehicles are moving, there is no "give" when the collision occurs all momentum is stopped in an instant. The impact is the equivalent of driving into a brick wall.

Head-on collisions are avoidable in most cases and are most often caused by driver distraction or drunk driving. If you or a loved one has been involved in a head-on collision, it is very important that you contact a seasoned attorney as soon as you can. Our proven firm may be able to help you pursue justice and compensation.

Common Injuries

When you or a family member has been injured in a head-on collision, the road to recovery is often long and painful. It is not uncommon for victims of a head-on accident to suffer spinal cord injuries or traumatic brain injuries. These types of accidents can change the entire course of your life. In addition to the burdens of medical bills and the high costs of ongoing medical care, you may be coping with lost wages and left wondering how you will be able to support yourself and your family.
