Head-On Collision Car Accident Attorneys, Rockville, MD

About Head-On Auto Crashes

Head-on collisions are far and away the most dangerous  type of car accident even at relatively low speeds.  If you’re traveling at 40 miles per hour and you are  rear-ended by a car going 45 miles per hour, the net impact amounts to only 5 miles per hour of force.  But if you’re traveling at 40 miles per hour and collide head-on with a car going 45 miles per hour, the impact both drivers feel is added and will be equivalent to 95 miles per hour—enough to seriously injure, if not kill, the occupants of both cars.

Often, in head-on collisions, it turns out that the driver at fault was drunk, going too fast, or was distracted by talking on his cell phone—and in more cases than you might think, he was also uninsured or underinsured.  Since head-on collisions can result in serious injuries including fractures, internal bleeding, traumatic brain injury, and spinal cord injuries, it is important to hire a lawyer who can recover the most damages possible for you.  This includes the driver involved or his insurance company, as well as any third parties or institutions that may have contributed to the accident.

For example, bars in Washington, D.C. can be held responsible for continuing to serve drunk patrons who then get into a car and drive and cause an accident.  In some cases, the state or local government can be sued for improperly maintained dividers or other hazardous road conditions.

Our attorneys have extensive experience in dealing with insurance companies, and will ensure that the injuries you sustained during a head-on collision are taken seriously and given the proper consideration. We take cases involving injuries sustained in car accidents including:

  • Fatal accidents
  • Whiplash,
  • Injuries to the neck, back, or spine,
  • Spinal Cord Injury (SCI),
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI),
  • Head injuries and concussions,
  • Fractures, broken bones,
  • Soft tissue damage,
  • Severe sprains, torn muscles and ligaments,
  • Internal organ damage,
  • Disfiguring scars or injuries, and
  • Other serious injuries requiring medical attention and care.

Rockville Head-On Collision Car Accident Lawyers

Serving Maryland and the District of Columbia

If you or a loved one has been injured in a head-end collision or any other type of car accident it is important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible. There are statutes of limitations that limit the amount of time you have to take legal action in accident cases in Maryland and in Washington, D.C. , but perhaps even more time sensitive is the need to collect evidence.

The police and the insurance companies involved will want to determine is who was at fault in a head-on collision: you or the other driver.  Even if there are eyewitnesses, authorities will examine forensic evidence—skid marks, damage to the interior and exterior fo both cars and even consider the injuries suffered by the drivers.  Forensic evidence and eye witness testimony is often used to recreate the circumstances of the crash to determine which driver was at fault.

Insurance companies will attempt to use any evidence they can to avoid paying fairly on a claim, and sometimes, police reports and findings are not always accurate.  If liability remains an issue, our attorneys may use accident-reconstruction experts that can present convincing evidence in your favor to a judge, jury or insurance-company representative.

The longer you wait to contact an attorney, the more difficult it can be to locate eye witnesses and document injuries. Injuries and damage to vehicles should be documented as soon as possible after an accident. Also, many accidents are caught on video tapes at traffic signals, highways and freeways, and by surrounding businesses or bystanders. The sooner you contact an attorney, the sooner they can begin locating important video evidence before it is lost or destroyed.
