Head-On Collisions

New York Head-On Collision Accident Attorneys

In any car accident case where serious injuries or death occurs, it is important to determine how and why the accident happened in order to maximize opportunities for the injured person or family to recover compensation for expenses and losses. An experienced auto accident lawyer is a valuable ally for an accident victim and the injured person's family during a very difficult time.

For best results after a car accident, we at Smiley & Smiley, LLP, advise you to contact an auto accident attorney as soon as possible. Our attorneys offer free initial consultations, and if we handle your case, we are prepared to hit the ground running, investigating the causes of the head-on collision and identifying responsible parties. We know how important it is to gather and analyze evidence such as eyewitness accounts and photos of the crashed vehicles.

How Head-On Collisions Occur

Injuries in a head-on collision are very often severe or fatal. We realize that the person looking at this website is very likely a wife, husband, mother, father, son or daughter. We understand the difficulties that your family faces at this time. We also want you to know that we have helped many other injured people and families after serious car accidents.

See our Results page to gain an idea of ways in which we have been able to help injured individuals and their families recover compensation after car accidents and other types of accidents in New York.

Sometimes the dramatic wreckage in a head-on collision makes it difficult to determine which car crossed the line into the other car's lane — and whether the driver of the other car had enough warning to have moved over and out of the line of danger. This is why every piece of evidence, such as skid marks on the pavement, is important — and should be gathered while the scene of the accident is still "fresh," if at all possible.

Was the other driver intoxicated with drugs or alcohol, or did he or she fall asleep when crossing into the lane of traffic in which your family member was heading the opposite direction? Was cellphone usage or some other distractor a probable factor? After a New York head-on collision accident, lawyer representation could mean the difference between discovering key facts such as these that could "make your case."
