Head-on collisions are a type of car accident that can be incredibly traumatic. These crashes typically lead to serious injuries, if not death.

If you have been injured in a head-on collision that was caused by another driver, you deserve financial compensation. Speak with a Spokane head-on collision lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates to get your questions answered and find out what your claim is worth.


Accident Causes

Head-on collisions are often caused by the following acts of negligence:

We will need to determine what caused your accident and who was responsible for it. This is at the heart of the concept of negligence, which is essential to your case.

By proving that someone else was responsible for your accident, you will be able to seek financial compensation from the at-fault party for your accident-related expenses and damages.


Fatal Accidents and Head-On Collisions

According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, head-on collisions account for 53 percent of passenger deaths and 56 percent of all occupant deaths in multi-car accidents.

If someone you love was killed in a head-on collision, you may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit on the deceased’s behalf. As long as you are a close relative, you may qualify to seek compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages, and more.

If you aren’t certain if you qualify to file for wrongful death, speak with a Spokane head-on collision lawyer from our office.


File Your Lawsuit Soon

You need to file your personal injury lawsuit within three years of the date of the accident to avoid exceeding the time constraints of the statute of limitations. This does not mean, however, that you want to rush to settle your claim.

It is important to work with an attorney and take the time to calculate all of your accident-related expenses. Doing so will ensure that you receive adequate compensation and aren’t surprised by any new expenses down the road.


Compensation for a Head-On Collision

We will work closely with both you and your doctor to identify all of the expenses and effects related to the crash. Make certain to bring the following information with you to your consultation:

  • Paystubs and W-2s so that we can calculate your lost income
  • Receipts for accident-related expenses
  • Quotes to fix your car or retrofit your home to accommodate an injury
  • Any other documentation or evidence that may pertain to your case

If you don’t have this information available, we will work with you to obtain it.

Once we have identified all of the ways in which your accident has affected your life, we can properly value your claim. We will also work with your doctor to determine what your medical expenses may be in the future to ensure that your settlement adequately accounts for them.
