Head-On Collision Attorney
A head-on collision is very often a very serious accident. Regardless of who is at fault, it is common for occupants of one or both vehicles to suffer severe or catastrophic injuries such as:
- Crush injuries
- Head injuries
- Chest injuries
- Back or neck injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Internal injuries
- Fatal injuries
The concept of fault is likely to have an impact on the outcome of your serious car accident case. You may be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering, above and beyond financial losses such as medical expenses if your accident occurred because of the negligence of another driver. On the other hand, do not be surprised if the other side claims that you should have been keeping a better lookout so as to be prepared to avoid a crash — even when another driver crossed into your lane.
If you or your loved one was seriously injured in a Utah head-on car accident, contact an attorney to schedule a no-obligation consultation.
Part of the trouble with head-on collisions is that it is often difficult to determine for sure which car was in the wrong lane — or even which direction each car was going. This is because a head-on collision at a high speed tends to knock the cars far from their original positions.
Thorough accident reconstruction analysis typically does determine which direction the vehicles were headed and which one crossed into the other one’s lane. At the law firm of Kristopher K. Greenwood & Associates, we are very thorough in our analysis of every car accident.
