These are some of the most frightening types of auto accidents, as they can cause devastating and life-changing injuries. Many victims never fully recover and are left with overwhelming medical expenses. They are also unable to return to work, and lose income. The auto accident attorneys at Farrow & Pulice, P.A. fight for their rights.
A head-on collision usually occurs when one vehicle crosses the traffic median directly into the path of another vehicle. These collisions can occur on two-lane roads or bridges, and often happen at night when lane markers on the road are harder to see. They are also more likely to happen on roads unfamiliar to the driver.
These types of accidents are usually caused by negligence. The driver may have been speeding, or was very aggressive when passing another vehicle. In some cases, the driver was distracted by texting or adjusting dashboard controls for the radio or GPS. In other cases, the driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or was falling asleep at the wheel.
The result is an extremely serious crash that leaves others killed or injured. The injuries suffered in a head-on collision can include:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Neck injuries
- Injuries to internal organs
- Herniated discs or other back injuries
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injuries
If you’ve been hurt in a head-on collision, you have injuries that require medical treatment. Your medical costs keep going up. You may not be able to work and it may be getting more difficult to make ends meet. You want to file a claim for financial compensation, but may not be sure what to do next.
We focus on getting the best possible outcome
Insurance companies are supposed to help. But they are mostly interested in keeping their profits as high as possible. This means they will try to pay you as little as possible. They may even make you a settlement offer, saying that it’s the best that they can do.
Don’t believe them. Our attorneys have been helping auto accident victims in southwestern Florida for decades. We know the tactics that insurance companies use to avoid their responsibility of paying compensation. And we know how to build strong cases that hold negligent drivers accountable and get insurance companies to treat you fairly.
We investigate your accident to find out what really happened. This means carefully reviewing all documentation, including accident reports and medical records. It means identifying witnesses and interviewing them ourselves. And if needed, we consult with accident reconstruction specialists and other experts.
Our attorneys can build a case that insurance companies can’t ignore. We insist on a resolution of your case that meets your needs. This includes compensation for all current and future medical expenses, lost wages while you can’t work and may also include non-economic losses such as disability, pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life.
We are dedicated to getting maximum compensation for your injuries, either through a negotiated settlement or a jury verdict. Learn more about how we can help by calling 866-408-1220.
