The North Carolina Personal Injury Lawyers’ Perspective

Head-on collisions can occur for a variety of reasons; many of these reasons involve negligence on the part of one of the drivers involved or dangerous roadways in the state. Injuries caused by head-on collisions are generally severe and debilitating. Due to the very nature of the accident, the faster vehicles are travelling, the greater the force of impact and the more serious injuries that result. As well as the physical detriments, the financial implications can be overwhelming. If you or a loved one has been involved in a head-on collision caused by another driver, you may be able to file a lawsuit to recover damages related to your injury, which can include medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost wages and property damage. This is why it is crucial for auto accident injury victims to consult with a knowledgeable lawyer. An experienced North Carolina (NC) personal injury attorney will investigate the causes of the accident thoroughly, including checking if the airbag deployed. If it did not and should have, you may be able to pursue a defective product claim from the manufacturer, as well as damages due to reckless driving.
