Head-On Collision

In nearly all cases, these types of crashes are caused by a reckless driver’s actions or poor road design. If you suffered a serious injury caused by an oncoming driver, you should consider your legal options in order to cover any medical bills or damages you may have incurred as a result of the collision.

Common Car Accident Questions

  • What Should I Do After a Car Accident?

    A: File a police report, gather as much information as you can about the accident, and get in touch with a lawyer. The sooner you speak with a car accident attorney, the faster you can pursue financial compensation for your damages.

  • How Long Should I Wait to File a Claim?

    A: Generally, it’s best to file your claim as soon after the accident as possible. There are a few reasons for this, including the statute of limitations. In short, the statute of limitations is the legal “window” you have to file a claim. This time frame varies from state to state. Additionally the nature of your claim can influence the time you have to file.

  • Do I Need an Attorney?

    A: You are not legally obligated to seek representation from a lawyer; however, car accident claims and lawsuits can be complex. The insurance company is not on your side, so working with an attorney can provide valuable insight and guidance throughout the duration of your claim or lawsuit.
