South Florida Head-on Collision Accident Attorneys Helping The injured In West Palm Beach & Port St. Lucie
Helping Victims of Head-on Collision Accidents Recover Compensation for Their Injuries and Other Damages
A head-on collision occurs when the front of one vehicle collides with the front of another vehicle, typically causing serious property damage and physical injuries. In some head-on collision cases, depending upon the amount of force involved, the collision can wind up being fatal to one or both of the drivers who were involved in the accident.
If you have been injured in a head-on collision that occurred in South Florida, you might be eligible to pursue and recover monetary compensation for all of your injuries. You could do this by pursuing a claim for personal injury protection (PIP) benefits through your own motor vehicle insurance company or by pursuing a claim against the at-fault driver’s insurer in the event you suffered a serious injury.
The experienced South Florida head-on collision accident attorneys at Rosenthal, Levy, Simon & Sosa are ready to help you pursue the compensation that you need for all of the injuries which you suffered in your head-on collision. Please speak with us today to find out more about how we could assist you with pursuing all of the monetary compensation that you need and deserve.
Where Do Head-on Car Collisions Happen?
Head-on car collisions can occur on just about any roadway, but they are especially common on roads that have just one lane in each direction – or where a driver is going in the wrong direction down a one-way street. Common causes of these accidents include the following:
- Failing to follow traffic signs (including one-way and do-not-enter signs) and traffic control devices, such as traffic signals
- Falling asleep at the wheel and veering into an opposing lane of travel
- Distracted driving, where a driver turns his or her attention away from the roadway (even for a second or two) and veers into another driver’s lane of travel
- Intoxicated or drugged driving, where a driver is under the illegal influence of alcohol or drugs, and as a result, experiences delayed reaction time or blurred vision while operating his or her vehicle.
Will my Case Need to Go to Court?
Many motor vehicle accident claims in Florida are settled with the injured driver’s own insurance company, pursuant to Florida no-fault laws. However, if the accident victim suffers a ‘threshold injury’ – or if treatment costs and lost wages exceed his or her PIP coverage – then the accident victim could file a claim with the at-fault driver’s insurer. In some instances, the insurance company may offer the injured driver fair compensation.
However, at other times the accident victim’s lawyer might need to file a lawsuit in the court system. The case could still settle at any point (and the majority do) prior to trial. An experienced South Florida head-on collision accident attorney can help you decide whether to accept a pending offer or take your case to court.
