Help For Head-On Car Accident Victims In Missouri

When a head-on collision occurs, the severity of the injuries sustained will most likely relate directly to the "closing speed" (the combined speed of both vehicles). In the event of a high-speed head-on collision, it is very likely that the resulting injuries will be catastrophic or deadly.

Since 1984, we have helped our injured clients and surviving family members resolve the financial, medical and legal problems brought on by car accidents. Do not hesitate to contact our head-on car accident lawyers in Columbia, Missouri, today to schedule a free initial consultation and learn how we can help you.

Fatal Head-On Car Accidents

Families of the deceased need and deserve to be compensated for the loss of their loved ones. Tragically, head-on collisions account for the majority of fatal crashes that we see. Fatal head-on crashes typically occur on two-lane roads. And while head-on collisions make up a small percent of car accidents, they comprise more than half of car accident-related deaths. If a motorist is not wearing a seat belt, he or she can be thrown from the car and die upon impact to the ground or die from injuries sustained from the impact. If the motorist is wearing a seat belt, fatal injuries can still occur, particularly in the case of a high-speed crash.

As the surviving family member of a spouse or other relative who was killed in a fatal car accident, we understand that you need time to grieve. Our attorneys can step in to handle all of your legal matters, giving you time to grieve and heal from your tragic loss.

Permanent Injuries and Head-On Collisions

Not all head-on collisions result in death. Many can result in permanent injuries that include:

  • Knee injuries
  • Leg injuries
  • Bone fractures
  • Back injuries
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Spinal cord injuries

Knee and leg injuries can be common. When a motorist slams on the brake to avoid the approaching car, his or her leg or knee can lock up, resulting in a serious injury upon impact.
