Austin Head-On Accident Attorneys

What to Do If You Were Injured or Your Loved One Was Killed in a Car Crash

Head-on accidents are, unfortunately, the most deadly type of automobile collision. Even at relatively low speeds, head-on collisions can have devastating consequences, resulting in catastrophic injuries and fatalities. In most cases, head-on accidents are caused by negligence—an inattentive driver drifts across the middle lane of a highway; a person who is texting while driving enters opposing lanes of traffic on a two-way street; a reckless driver attempts to pass a large 18-wheeler and collide with someone in the oncoming lane. These and other instances cause far too many head-on collisions in the state of Texas each year.

Common Injuries in Head-On Accidents

Regardless of the cause of the accident, whether a distracted or drunk driver acted carelessly or an inexperienced driver attempted a risky or illegal maneuver, head-on collisions tend to result in the highest number of fatalities. Those who survive such accidents often find themselves facing a long, grueling road to recovery from catastrophic, life-altering injuries. Some may never fully recover from their injuries.

Some of the most common types of injuries sustained in head-on collisions include:

Compensation for Head-On Collision Victims in Texas

In most cases, the healing process is lengthy and expensive. Victims will require extensive medical treatment, including emergency surgeries and ongoing physical and cognitive rehabilitation therapy. Their injuries may require them to use a wheelchair, meaning they will need to make modifications to their home. They may be unable to return to work, either temporarily or permanently, unable to drive themselves to medical appointments and other activities, and reliant on professional and familial support in numerous ways.

While a personal injury claim cannot undo the suffering you or your family member has been through, it can allow you the financial breathing room you need to obtain critical medical treatment, make up for lost wages, and reduce the cost of other economic and non-economic damages.

Depending on the unique circumstances involved in your accident, you may be able to recover compensation for the following:

  • All medical treatment/care related to the accident, including immediate emergency treatment, ongoing care, medication and pain management, rehabilitation therapy, and more
  • Medical equipment/home and vehicle modifications required as a result of your injuries
  • Lost wages and/or income from time taken off work to receive medical care
  • Reduced or lost earning ability if your injuries prevent you from returning to work temporarily or permanently
  • Pain and suffering, including emotional distress and mental health issues (such as PTSD, depression, anxiety, etc.) incurred as a result of the accident

If your loved one was killed in a head-on collision, you may be able to bring a wrongful death claim and seek compensation for damages such as funeral/burial expenses, loss of support, loss of expected income/inheritance, loss of consortium, and more.
