Any car accident can result in damages and injuries, but head-on collisions can be some of the deadliest. If you or a family member has been hurt in one of these crashes, find out how to get fair compensation by consulting with a Boise head-on collision lawyer.

Head-on collisions can be incredibly devastating, especially if they happen at high speeds. It is extremely common for both drivers and passengers to experience catastrophic injuries in these accidents, regardless of whether seatbelts are worn or not. This type of accident can have many causes, some of which may be directly influenced by driver negligence.

When negligence is the cause, it may be possible to seek compensation for any medical bills, lost income, and other damages that you incur because of the accident. An experienced Boise head-on collision lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates can assist you throughout the legal process and ensure that you get a fair settlement from the insurance company.


Causes of Head-On Collisions

Many factors can influence and create the conditions that lead to a head-on collision between two cars. Most frequently, these accidents occur when one or more vehicles swerve into the opposite lane, either on purpose or by accident. Other causes may include any of the following:

  • Attempting to pass on a hill or blind curve
  • Intoxicated driving due to either drugs or alcohol
  • Driving too fast in icy or rainy weather
  • Distracted driving, such as texting while driving
  • Faulty brakes or steering column
  • Drowsy driving and falling asleep at the wheel

Determining the cause of your accident is essential to your case, as it will be the basis for your personal injury lawsuit. By investigating the details of your accident, we’ll be able to name all of the negligent parties, thereby maximizing the potential financial compensation that you could receive.


The Repercussions of a Head-On Collision

If you are involved in a head-on collision, you may experience a broad range of consequences, both physical and mental. Head injuries, whiplash, broken bones, and even spinal injuries from crumple damage are all exceptionally common, as are disfiguring lacerations from broken glass if your windshield shatters. Drivers who aren’t wearing a seatbelt may even be thrown from their vehicle.

Fatalities are—unfortunately—fairly common in high-speed head-on collisions. Experiencing any of these injuries, whether serious or minor, can be very frightening, and this may even result in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It is vital to seek treatment for these issues, whether physical or mental, but costs can quickly become prohibitive—which is why you need an insurance settlement to pay for your recovery.
