Attorney for Head-on Collisions in Pinellas Park
Head-on collisions can be extremely dangerous for people in both vehicles because they often occur at high rates of speed and along with the force of impact, passengers may be struck by metal and glass from the car’s windshields and front end.
These collisions are most frequently caused by driver negligence where the other driver due to being distracted, intoxicated, or drowsy drifts into oncoming traffic or has lost control of their vehicle due to speeding or unsafe maneuvers. In some cases the driver may have intentionally crossed into oncoming traffic to pass a vehicle or avoid an obstacle.
Common Injuries and Seeking Treatment
Head-on collisions can result in very serious traumatic injuries. Victims often suffer head and brain injuries, back and spinal cord injuries, whiplash, soft tissue injuries, broken bones, and lost limbs.
Florida law mandates that if an accident victim does not seek medical treatment within fourteen days following the accident, they have forfeited their personal injury protection coverage. So, it is important to seek medical care immediately even if you are not suffering severe pain or discomfort because injuries such as those to the head, neck, and back may worsen over time and require early intervention for optimal recovery.
Your car accident happened quickly but the consequences can last a lifetime. You should talk to a car accident lawyer to review your case and discuss if compensation is available. Monetary compensation may include the cost of your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. The experienced attorneys of Oldham & Delcamp are prepared to thoroughly evaluate your case and determine how to pursue your claim.
We will do the work of gathering records related to your claim such as medical and insurance policies, investigate the accident, and negotiate with the insurance company. If settlement negotiations are unsuccessful, we are prepared to go to trial and present your case to a jury.
