Columbia Personal Injury Lawyer > Columbia Head On Crash Lawyer

Columbia Head On Crash Lawyer

Head on collisions are thankfully rare, but they are some of the deadliest on South Carolina roads. At The Stanley Law Group, we have met with men and women who barely survived head on collisions. These are tough legal cases to bring because we need to prove who is at fault, and the facts are sometimes unclear. The vehicles involved also tend to be severely damaged, which means evidence is harder to find. Call our firm if you’d like to get started. A Columbia head on crash lawyer can go over the legal process for obtaining financial compensation when you are hurt in a collision.

Rare But Deadly

The odds are low that two cars should collide head on. At least one driver should realize what is about to happen and jerk the steering wheel to avoid an accident. Nonetheless, when they happen, head-on collisions cause horrifying injuries, including facial injuries, whiplash, concussions, shattered vertebrae, and more.

Why do these accidents happen? The leading causes include:

  • A drunk driver can easily slide over the center line and crash into oncoming traffic simply because they can’t see straight or control the steering wheel. Drunk drivers might also get confused and go the wrong way on a one-way street.
  • A tired driver can nod off for a couple seconds, which is just long enough for a car to get out of control. They can smash into oncoming traffic.
  • Distracted drivers fail to look where they are going. Even worse, their hands might follow their eyes, and then can end up in the other lane.
  • A reckless driver might be fleeing from the police or enjoy risk taking, so they go the wrong way on a one-way street or pass illegally around a corner.
  • Potholes or road defects. Even careful drivers might hit a pothole and get thrown into oncoming traffic, through no fault of their own.
  • Blown tires. When a tire blows, a car can quickly become uncontrollable. A head-on collision could happen.

We see head-on collisions on one-way streets, highways, and inside parking lots. If you remain conscious, you should try to call the police to report the accident. Also document the accident as best you can.

We can end up suing a careless or reckless motorist for the crash. If a road defect is to blame, we might end up suing the city or state—whoever has responsibility for the road. A car defect might be the fault of the manufacturer. Let us investigate and compile evidence to use in a case. The more time we have to pull together evidence, the better.

Our firm is also prepared for a defendant to blame you for an accident. We never passively accept partial responsibility. Instead, we fight to ensure you receive the most compensation available.
