Protecting Your Rights After A Head-On Collision

When a driver crosses the center line or comes straight at you, there is often very little time to get out of the way, if any. Serious injuries and even death may result from a head-on accident, leaving an individual or surviving family members wondering what to do next.

After your life has been impacted by a head-on collision, turn to the experienced attorneys at the Law Offices of James L. O'Rourke. We are a firm dedicated to handling personal injury cases, including all types of car accidents. Our firm understands the difficulties victims and families face after a head-on collision. We work tirelessly to pursue the compensation they deserve for the injuries and losses they have suffered.

What Happens In A Head-On Accident

Typically when two cars hit head-on one of the drivers crossed the center line or median of a road, entering the other lanes of traffic. Head-on collisions can also result from a driver going the wrong way on a road due to speeding, distracted driving, fatigued driving or other situations. 

When these accidents occur a portion or the entire front of the vehicle is damaged. Since the fronts of the vehicle hit, air bags often deploy inside the vehicle. Injuries due to the impact and air bag can include:

  • Closed head and traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Neck, back and spinal cord injuries
  • Broken bones and crush injuries
  • Burns
  • Amputations
  • Serious lacerations and abrasions

Unfortunately, these accidents can also be fatal. Our lawyers understand how difficult it can be to lose a loved one and can handle a wrongful death claim to hold the negligent party responsible for the loss.
