The skilled and compassionate team at Cohen & Cohen, has experience successfully helping people in your situation.

When Two Vehicles Collide

Head-on collisions often result in serious injuries or death. You may or may not remember learning in science class about the laws of motion, but some of the ones that explain a head-on collision are pretty basic:

  • When two heavy, moving objects collide, the force of the impact on both objects is great.
  • When this occurs with two cars and people in them, the damage to the vehicles and the injuries sustained by the people in the cars are often significant. While head-on collisions count for only about two percent of all accidents, they often cause as much as ten percent of all car accident fatalities.

This, along with many other factors, is why it can be helpful to talk to an experienced and understanding head-on collisions attorney as soon as possible after an accident occurs. If you or someone close to you has been injured in a head-on collision, the successful legal team at Cohen & Cohen believes that you and your loved ones should take time to heal while we work to protect the viability of your personal injury claim. If you are grieving because someone close to you has died due to a head-on collision, we do not think you should be worrying about the legal aspects of a wrongful death claim- and we will work hard to alleviate this stress as much as possible. Whether you know you need an experienced and successful head-on collisions attorney or are unsure, contact the personal injury lawyers Washington DC relies on for a free consultation today.

Common Head-on Collision Injuries

Luckily, head-on collision accidents do not frequently happen because the injuries sustained are often very serious or fatal when they do happen. The magnitude of the forces involved in head-on collisions often cause the following types of injuries:

  • Broken and fractured bones
  • Brain injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Internal bleeding

These kinds of injuries are painful when they occur and are often hard to heal from. Sometimes people do not fully recover from these injuries, for example, not being able to use one or more limb or having different cognitive abilities than those present before the injury that caused them.

If you or someone you love has been injured in a head-on collision, and you are worried about medical bills and/or loss of income as a result of injuries sustained in an accident, help yourself by talking to our experienced head-on collisions attorney. At Cohen & Cohen, we have a history of success at getting the maximum amount of compensation for their clients.

Average Settlement for a Head-On Collision

Head-On collisions are among some of the most severe types of car accidents that can occur. Unfortunately, when these accidents happen, injuries are likely to be severe and can even have a high probability of being fatal. When a person gets behind the wheel, chances are they weren’t expecting their day to end in a devastating accident. Typically in cases where a head-on collision occurs, one driver has likely been negligent, resulting in serious injuries. As a victim, you may face injuries that have had a life-altering impact on you, and you deserve compensation for these losses. While the average settlement for a head-on collision can vary, our team at Cohen & Cohen can work closely with you to value your case and take action within the statute of limitations.  

Reasons for Head-On Collisions

Head-on collisions occur when two vehicles coming from opposite directions collide. Sometimes, despite best efforts, there may be no way to avoid the accident from happening. When two cars collide with such force, the aftermath can be devastating. According to a 2017 study conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, rural areas are among the most prevalent places for head-on collisions to occur; here are several reasons for such accidents:

  • Driving Under the Influence
  • Fatigue
  • Distracted Driving
  • Inclement Weather
  • Improperly Passing Another Vehicle
  • Avoiding Traffic Rules

No matter the reason, if the other party can be held accountable for losses, they should be, which is why it’s in your best interest to speak with a legal professional. 

Valuing Your Accident

As an accident victim or family member considering filing a claim or pursuing a lawsuit, it’s only natural that you will want to know whether the process of gaining compensation will be worth it. Most want to know how much a potential settlement will be worth. This question is best answered by a professional once they have been able to review the details of your case. There can be a vast range as head-on collision settlements vary anywhere from thousands to over a million dollars. Factors that might increase the value of your settlement include the severity of injuries, medical expenses, emotional suffering, whether you have a reduced earning capacity, and lost wages.

Don’t Delay

Whether you are a family member who has tragically lost a loved one or a victim who has experienced tremendous physical injury and pain, it’s imperative that you not wait to speak with a lawyer. There are strict timeframes for taking legal action, and to hold the responsible party accountable, it’s critical to act immediately. The statute of limitations is the length of time plaintiffs have to file a lawsuit against the responsible party in DC; the statute of limitations is as follows:

  • Personal Injury Cases: Three Years
  • Wrongful Death Cases: Two Years

As you can probably surmise, time is of the essence to ensure that you and your family receive the compensation you deserve. Once the statute of limitations expires, there are very few exceptions to extend the timeframe. As a result, the opportunity to take legal recourse may no longer be available.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
