Head-On Collisions in Fort Lauderdale

When two cars are traveling at full speed and they have a head-on collision, the results can be devastating. Some people walk away with catastrophic injuries, spinal injuries, paralysis, broken bones or brain injuries, while others never walk away at all. These sometimes fatal accidents only account for about 2% of all auto accidents, but sadly, they account for 10.1% of all auto accident fatalities.

Causes of Head-On Collisions

This type of auto accident can be caused by many factors. Drunk drivers sometimes crash head-on into an oncoming car, causing devastation. In addition, negligence is a common reason that head-on-collisions occur, either by that of the driver at fault or from a lack of maintenance on the road. Sometimes an automobile manufacturer will produce a defective part that contributes to the accident. But whatever the cause, the results can be devastating.

We can help you recover compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Inability to work
  • Mental and emotional distress

Our Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyers at Kelley/Uustal understand just how much a head-on-collision can affect a family. If the accident results in a catastrophic injury, the financial implications can be overwhelming. The injured party will not likely be able to continue to work, will likely have mounting bills and probable continued pain and suffering due to a forced lifestyle change. If the head-on-collision resulted in the death of a loved one, the impact will be long-lasting and emotionally devastating. It takes an experienced and dedicated attorney to do the preparation and work in order to get justice for the family or victim of a head-on collision. It also takes sufficient resources to forensically study the scene of the accident, analyze the car for defective parts, and investigate the actions that lead to the tragedy. Many attorneys simply look at the results of a head-on-collision and try and build a case from there. But our attorneys at Kelley/Uustal will also look at what lead to those results, which could help build a stronger case.
