Head-on Collisions

Head-on collisions are a relatively uncommon type of car crash, occurring in less than 2% of crashes, but they account for just over 10% of crash fatalities. This is in many cases due to the increased speed of the vehicles involved. Another type of “head-on crash” is known as a sideswipe. In a sideswipe, two cars touch while driving past one another. Both are examples of “lane departure” accidents, which are characterized by one (or both) vehicle(s) exiting their designated lane and interacting with other cars. The North Carolina and South Carolina car accidents attorneys at Grimes Teich Anderson are experienced in handling all kinds of car crashes, including those involving all types of head-on collisions.

The results of a head-on collision can be extremely harmful and deadly. The result of direct impact to the front of a car moving at even remotely high speeds jeopardizes the car’s operating technology and mechanics. It also threatens the integrity of the windshield and can hurt or kill all passengers in the vehicle, particularly those in the front seat. A head-on collision may throw passengers from a vehicle, jar riders into whiplash, or cause any number of other impact dangers.

If you were injured in a head-on collision, or if someone you love was in such a crash and lost their life, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and pain and suffering. The North Carolina and South Carolina car accident lawyers at Grimes Teich Anderson can protect your rights and interests and help you get the benefits to which you may be entitled. The cost of your hospital expenses and lost wages during recovery as well as vehicle repairs and future doctor visits may all add up to a massive sticker price that puts you on uncertain footing with your finances. Stress over that and the worry you may have about your injuries, and those of your passengers are too much to try and handle while the insurance company may be calling to pressure you to sign papers. Don’t go it alone.

Laws in North Carolina and South Carolina are different when it comes to what you may be entitled to recover after a car wreck.
