Denver Head-On Collisions Attorney

Denver frontal impact accident attorney

Denver Head-On Collisions Lawyer Serving Colorado

Of the different types of car accidents that can occur, head-on collisions are among the most dangerous. These accidents often take place when vehicles are traveling at high speeds, and the force of the impact can result in multiple types of catastrophic injuries. In many cases, these accidents are fatal. While head-on collisions make up only 2 percent of all accidents, they account for around 10 percent of motor vehicle fatalities. The effects of a front-impact collision can be devastating, leading to injuries that may permanently affect the lives of victims and their families. Those who have been injured in these types of collisions will need to understand how they can take action to collect financial compensation from negligent drivers or other parties who were at fault.

The lawyers of The Gold Law Firm understand the many ways that a serious car accident injury can impact a person's life. The costs of medical treatment alone can be difficult to address in these situations, and if ambulance transportation, emergency treatment, hospitalization, surgery, and ongoing care are needed, a family's expenses may total tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. To make matters even more difficult, an injury may prevent a person from working, or a victim may experience permanent disabilities, and their loss of income may put their family in dire financial straits. Those seriously hurt are sometimes unable to enjoy life as they once did, and they should be compensated for this loss. The pain and suffering that goes along with the injuries and loss of enjoyment are as real as any physical impairment. We work to help victims address these issues and recover compensation that will fully cover the losses they have experienced and all of the other ways they have been affected.

Causes of Head-On Collisions

In nearly every case, driver negligence is to blame for head-on collisions. These accidents typically occur when a driver leaves their lane and enters oncoming traffic. Due to the speed at which vehicles regularly travel, accidents can be difficult or impossible for other drivers to avoid in these situations. At higher speeds, the force of an impact is likely to result in severe injuries, and the forces placed on the bodies of the vehicles' occupants can cause severe bodily harm. Victims of head-on collisions may experience traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries that could result in partial or complete paralysis, broken bones, amputations, severe lacerations, muscle strains, joint dislocations, and more.

There are multiple reasons that drivers may cause frontal-impact accidents, including:

  • Aggressive driving - In some cases, a driver who believes a person in front of them is traveling too slowly may attempt to pass the vehicle by entering the oncoming lane of traffic. If they fail to make sure traffic is clear before doing so, they may collide with vehicles traveling in the opposite direction.
  • Distracted driving - Drivers who do not fully pay attention to the road may drift out of their lane and enter oncoming traffic. There are a variety of distractions that may lead to these types of accidents, including texting while driving, eating and drinking, turning around to check on children in the backseat, or reaching for items that have fallen to the floor.
  • Drunk driving - Intoxication by alcohol or drugs may cause a driver to lose control and collide with oncoming vehicles. A drunk driver may fail to realize that they are traveling the wrong way on a one-way street, enter a freeway interchange from the wrong direction, or leave their lane due to problems with vision or coordination.
