Of the many types of personal injury cases handled by The Spodek Injury Law Team, the ones involving head-on collisions are among the most tragic. The fact of the matter is that when two vehicles collide head on, serious injuries and even fatalities often occur. Although head-on collisions account for only about 2 percent of all automobile accidents, they account for more than 10 percent of all traffic fatalities. Sadly, the vast majority of these incidents are preventable and are often caused by the negligent actions of distracted, impaired or otherwise reckless drivers. If you have been injured in a head-on collision in Riverside or elsewhere in CA and believe another party is to blame, Spodek is here to help.
To understand why head-on collisions are so devastating, you only need to consider the physics involved. When two massive, heavy objects traveling at high speeds collide, the force of that collision is effectively doubled. The driver and front-seat passenger are the most vulnerable, but anyone in either vehicle is at extreme risk of incurring major injuries or even of being killed. The Spodek Injury Law Team routinely assists clients who have been injured in head-on collisions in Riverside and elsewhere in the state, and we also represent the families of those who have perished in such unfortunate incidents.
Head-on collisions are pretty rare. They are overwhelmingly preventable, however, and are often caused by negligent behavior. A few examples of things that often lead to head-on collisions include:
Head-on collisions occur throughout the state of CA, and they happen under a variety of circumstances. Not surprisingly, they are most common in heavily populated areas, so there tends to be a lot of head-on crashes in Riverside. They are extremely rare on divided highways – especially those that have physical barriers between the two sides. They tend to happen the most frequently at intersections and undivided highways, freeways and other roadways. At intersections, people may run red lights, disregard stop signs or otherwise do things that cause them to hit other vehicles head on. On undivided roads, cars drift into oncoming traffic for all kinds of reasons. Also, drivers occasionally become confused and drive the wrong way on one-way roads and freeways.
Due to the extremely violent nature of head-on collisions, it should come as no surprise that victims often emerge with debilitating and devastating injuries. These may include:
Head-on collisions also often cause wrongful deaths. In those cases, a standard personal injury case is impossible. Instead, a wrongful death suit can be filed on behalf of the deceased. Spodek Law is prepared to help you with your wrongful death suit to hold responsible the person or people whose negligence caused the untimely death of your loved one in a head-on collision.
In the aftermath of a head-on collision, you are likely to be approached by an insurance company representative or some other third party. These representatives will claim to have your best interests in mind, but nothing could be further from the truth. They work only in the best interests of their clients, so it’s crucial not to speak to anyone before retaining skilled legal representation.
Following a head-on collision in CA, you are likely to be left with serious injuries. Extensive medical care will be required, and the resulting bills are sure to be steep. The repercussions of being the victim of a head-on collision don’t end there, unfortunately. They often continue for a long time and may even be felt for the rest of your life. With these points in mind, it’s crucial to not only hold the responsible party accountable but to be compensated to the maximum possible extent. In a perfect world, this would be a foregone conclusion. Unfortunately, in the real world, it requires filing a lawsuit and working with skilled personal injury attorneys to build the strongest case possible, and that’s where the Spodek Injury Law Team comes in.
Once you’ve hired Spodek, we will take it from there. Our team will investigate the scene of your head-on collision, gather testimony from any witnesses who were there, carefully read and analyze police reports and work with qualified experts to recreate the conditions under which the accident occurred. In other words, we will perform our own investigation on your behalf, and we’ll take what we find to help build your case. Don’t let the negligent party get away with injuring you in a head-on collision.
