There are many different types of car accidents that can leave people hurt. But head-on collisions can be especially devastating. These types of accidents often involve two vehicles traveling at high rates of speed, and the force of impact can cause tremendous damage. The car accident attorneys at Mike Slocumb Law Firm help the injured recover the compensation they need and deserve.
Insurance companies are supposed to help when people are hurt in an accident. But they are mostly concerned with protecting their bottom line. They may question the extent of your injury or the need for specific medical treatment. They may make a lowball offer that doesn’t come close to covering the damages you have suffered. And they have high-priced lawyers in their corner.
That’s why you need an experienced, aggressive attorney who will look out for your best interests. Our firm knows how head-on accidents can affect the lives of victims and their families. We know these crashes can leave them with overwhelming medical bills and that victims often cannot work due to their injuries. That’s why we fight to help them get justice.
Injuries sustained in head-on collisions often include broken bones, lacerations, internal injuries, spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injury. It can take months or even years to recover from injuries. Some victims of head-on collisions never fully recover and are left permanently disabled. They may require lifelong medical care.
Head-on collisions are often caused by drivers who are:
Recovering compensation after a head-on accident can be difficult. Negligent drivers often don’t admit to doing anything wrong. Insurance companies don’t want to pay you. You may even get blamed for causing the accident.
That’s why we focus on getting the facts first. Our legal team investigates the accident to find out what really happened. We carefully review accident reports, medical records and other documents. We examine photos of the accident scene. We identify witnesses and talk to them ourselves. And if needed, we consult with accident reconstruction experts and other specialists.
Our attorneys know how to find evidence that proves another driver’s negligence caused the accident that left you injured. We determine the total damages you suffered as a result of your crash – including current and future medical expenses, lost wages and other damages such as pain and suffering. Then we demand compensation.
In some cases, a head-on collision may have been caused by an automotive defect, such as a blown tire or faulty steering column. If we determine that’s the case, we can fight to hold negligent manufacturers accountable.
We have recovered millions for clients through negotiated settlements and jury verdicts over the years. When the insurance companies see that we have built a strong case that proves negligence, they often agree to settlement negotiations. But we are not interested in lowball offers that don’t meet your needs. If they won’t agree to a settlement that works for you, we will fight them in court.
