What are common causes of head-on collisions?
Head-on crashes happen for many different reasons. Often, it’s because the at-fault driver was doing something reckless or negligent. More specifically, some of the most common causes of head-on collisions include:
- Distracted driving, including texting while driving
- Falling asleep at the wheel, especially on city streets or rural roads, where there’s no divider between on-coming traffic
- Drinking and driving
- Speeding or other forms of reckless driving
Whatever the cause of your head-on collision, an experienced accident attorney can thoroughly investigate your crash and find the facts you need to hold the at-fault driver accountable for their actions.
What can I be compensated for in a head-on collision?
When people think about compensation for car accidents, many only think about the expenses immediately after an accident. The reality is you can and should be paid for any accident-related expense, even if it’s something years from now in the future, including:
- All your accident-related medical bills, including:
- Emergency medical care
- Surgical procedures
- Physical therapy
- Follow-up doctor’s appointments
- Future surgical procedures, if necessary
- Car repair or replacement costs
- Replacement income during your recovery
- Lost future income, if you cannot return to work or if a loved one died in the crash
- Pain and suffering, in certain circumstances
- Funeral expenses, if necessary
The stakes are high in many head-on collision cases. Depending on what happened, your claim could be worth thousands or millions of dollars. Insurance companies know this. That’s why they often want to settle cases right after an accident – before the true cost of your crash is fully known. That’s why it’s critical that you have a lawyer on your side, standing up for your rights.
How can an accident attorney help with my head-on collision?
There are many different ways a lawyer can help you or your family after a head-on collision. Some of the services an attorney can provide include:
- Investigate your accident thoroughly and search for evidence to build the strongest case
- Verify that the official police accident report reflects exactly what happened
- Consult with accident reconstruction experts, if necessary
- Deal directly with insurance companies on your behalf
- Negotiate a fair settlement offer with the at-fault driver’s insurance company

Obtaining the maximum financial compensation for you or your family matters, but that’s not what drives attorney Williams to work hard on these cases. It’s about holding the driver accountable for their actions. It’s about making sure insurance companies do the right thing. It’s about justice.
