Practice Areas Head On Collisions

National statistics say that head-on collisions on our roads account for about 10% of traffic deaths each year. When you take out intersection accidents, head-on crashes account for nearly 20% of all fatal wrecks across the United States.

Automobile Accidents

A head-on collision is a direct impact to the front of a vehicle by another vehicle. Head on collisions can be some of the most traumatic car accidents and can cause severe injuries. In order for an accident victim to recover from injuries obtained from a head-on collision, he or she must be able to show that the other driver was at fault. These types of collisions can be somewhat easier to prove fault than other accidents, especially if a police officer responded to the crash scene. Areas that are prone to head on collisions commonly include:

  • Busy Highways
  • Rural Roads
  • Curvy Roads
  • Multi-Lane Traffic Intersections
  • Parking Lots and Garages

Although these cases can be easier to determine fault, it's still wise to get an attorney involved to ensure that the at-fault driver's insurance company offers the highest settlement that the injured party deserves. If you or a loved one has been involved in a head-on collision on one of our Georgia roadways, do not hesitate to contact Brooks Injury Law for your free consultation.

You may hear rear-end accidents often referred to as "fender-benders" because they commonly occur at low speeds. Although we often call rear-end collisions "fender-benders," that is not to say that they cannot cause serious injuries.
Side-impact collisions are accidents where the side of one or more cars is impacted. These are often called broadside collisions or T-Bone accidents, meaning that one car was hit on the side by the front or rear of another car.
