Learn Why Head-On Collisions Are So Dangerous and What You Can Do if You Are Injured in One

Some of the most hazardous car accidents a person can be involved in are head-on collisions. You probably want to know how to hold the responsible party accountable if you were hurt in this kind of mishap. Then, call Law Offices of Fernando D. Vargas at 909-982-0707 for a free legal consultation once you have read the information below to learn more.

Identifying who was at fault in a head-on car crash

Identifying who was careless is necessary to establish fault. Driving recklessly, in a hazardous manner, without using reasonable caution, when distracted, or while texting while driving are all examples of negligence.

In most situations, the driver who is at fault will also be responsible for covering all parties’ damages. There may, however, be more than one responsible party in some circumstances. Each person is liable for damages in proportion to their level of fault. For instance, a driver would be liable for 50% of the damages if they were 50% at fault for the collision.

You might be able to bring a lawsuit for a number of damages

Depending on the injuries you sustained in the accident, you may be able to seek particular damages. Economic damages and noneconomic damages are divided into two groups. Economic damages are those that directly relate to losing money and are therefore reasonably easy to quantify.

Medical expenses, lost income, ambulance fees, continuous care and treatment, emergency room care, medical supplies, physical therapy, prescription drugs, property damage (including damage to the vehicle), and other costs are all examples of economic damages.

Noneconomic damages are those that are more difficult to quantify financially, such as pain and suffering, loss of companionship, and diminished quality of life.

How to file a lawsuit against the responsible party

You should speak with a personal injury lawyer as soon as you can if you think that someone else was to blame for your head-on collision. Do not assign blame for the collision; instead, report it to the police and your insurance provider. Do not provide the insurance provider with a recorded statement. Give the very minimum of information necessary, and then get in touch with a lawyer.

When you call the Law Offices of Fernando D. Vargas at 909-982-0707, we will review your case and evaluate whether there is a chance that you could receive a sizable settlement. If we accept your case because we think it has merit, you will only have to pay us if we are successful in getting compensation for your losses.
