If You Have Been Injured

There are a number of steps you can take to protect your rights if you have been injured in a head-on collision. Make sure you file a police report and obtain a copy of the report for your records. Gather as much evidence as possible from the scene including photographs of the vehicles, your injuries, contact information for eyewitnesses and pertinent information from other parties that were involved in the collision.

If you are unable to do so, it would be a good idea to have a friend or a family member gather these important pieces of evidence for you. Seek and obtain medical attention, treatment and care right away. Follow the doctor's advice with regard to continuing treatment and care.

Collisions and Injuries

Head-on collisions can result in catastrophic injuries. According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), even though head-on accidents represent only 2 percent of all traffic accidents, they account for more than 10 percent of traffic accident fatalities. Head-on crashes can result in serious injuries or fatalities even at slower speeds.

Head-on collisions are almost always caused by the negligence of another motorist, such as a wrong-way driver who is impaired, a motorist who was looking at his or her phone or a fatigued driver who falls asleep at the wheel. Regardless of the cause, injured victims or families of deceased victims in such cases would be well advised to understand their legal rights and options.

Common Causes of Head-On Collisions

  • Driving under the influence: This is one of the most common reasons why drivers veer or drift into opposing lanes of traffic and cause a head-on collision. In fact, driver impairment causes most head-on crashes. This is because intoxicated drivers have impaired reflexes and poor judgment when it comes to assessing distance and direction. A majority of head-on crashes that involve impaired drivers tend to be wrong-way crashes.
  • Drowsy driving: Long-haul truck drivers, night shift employees and other sleep-deprived drivers can be fatigued while driving. A driver who hasn't had sufficient sleep or rest is more likely to fall asleep at the wheel and drift into opposing lanes of traffic. These types of crashes can have devastating consequences.
  • Cell phone use: Talking on a cell phone, texting while driving or checking e-mail or social media are all examples of distracted driving that could lead to a head-on collision. It only takes a few seconds of the driver taking his or her eyes off the road to cause a devastating head-on collision. Other examples of driver distractions include, eating, drinking, reading, checking the GPS, fiddling with temperature controls or the radio, grooming, applying makeup, etc.
  • Faulty traffic signals: When traffic signals at street intersections fail to work as they should, they could cause head-on collisions as well as broadside crashes.
  • Senior drivers: Recently, older drivers who are confused or disoriented have caused catastrophic head-on collisions by traveling the wrong way on the highway or by exiting on entrance ramps.
  • Excessive speed: When drivers operate at a speed that is above the posted limit or when they travel at a speed that is unsafe given the traffic, roadway, or weather conditions, there is a higher likelihood that they will lose control of their vehicles and veer into opposing lanes of traffic.
  • Vehicle defect: Sometimes, a vehicle defect that triggers a mechanical malfunction could also cause a driver to lose control and crash head-on into an oncoming vehicle.

What is Your Claim Worth?

If you have suffered serious injuries in a head-on collision that causes you to seek emergency treatment, hospitalization and continuing rehabilitative care, your claim will be worth a lot more than if you had simply suffered a few scrapes and bruises. Victims of head-on car accidents can seek compensation for damages including:

  • Emergency transportation and treatment costs
  • Hospitalization costs
  • Expenses relating to surgery
  • Cost of rehabilitative treatment and therapy
  • Lost wages
  • Permanent injuries such as scarring or disfigurement
  • Disabilities
  • Lost future income or loss of livelihood
  • Loss of life's enjoyment
  • Loss of consortium
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress or mental anguish

Client Reviews of Bisnar Chase

“Great people in this office, everyone was really helpful explaining everything. I was referred by my aunt for my car accident in October and the case went pretty fast. No problems and very professional. I was kept in the loop thru [sic] the whole process and was able to get a better settlement than my insurance company said I would. I cant really compare them to other law firms because it was the first time I had to use an attorney, but my bad experience with the car accident was handled as good as I could have hoped.”

“Like Danielle, I have been waiting a long time to review Bisnar Chase too. My review is a little different, however. I have only experienced a friendly staff (especially the receptionist Loraine) that treats everyone of their clients like they are movie stars. If I had a friend that was in an accident these guys would be the first people I would send them to.”

“I am very pleased with the results this law firm obtained for me. Their professionalism, attentiveness and friendliness was outstanding. They listened to me, answered my questions, advised me and kept me informed. A truck hit my car causing me serious injuries, medical bills, lost time from work and damaged to my car. They took care of everything wonderfully. They helped with getting my car repaired and a rental car. They helped me get medical help. They got my doctor bills paid, kept me from having to go to court and obtained a settlement for me beyond my expectations. Four of my family members have used these guys and had equally good experiences. One of my relatives consulted with them and got great advise about handling her matter. Mr. Bisnar told her she didn't need an attorney and told her how to handle it. She couldn't believe the compassion and great advise, especially without a fee. Mr. Bisnar helped my brother-in-law get a multiple six-figure recovery in an employment law dispute. Starting with the receptionist, my paralegal, the paralegal supervisor, Mrs. De La Torre, Mrs. Barker and Mr. Bisnar himself, everyone was helpful, friendly and professional. It was a refreshing experience after a bad accident. They send me a birthday card with a Baskin Robins gift certificate every year. In January they send me chocolate dipped fortune cookies. They have even offered me Lakers' tickets. They certainly didn't forget me after my case was done.”
