Many catastrophic collisions happen when a driver is distracted, loses control of the vehicle, or is otherwise impaired. According to the Texas Department of Transportation, 597 people were killed in head-on collisions in 2019.
Some of the most common causes of head-on accidents involve:
- Distracted driving – Cell phones and other electronic devices can cause drivers to become distracted and swerve into oncoming traffic.
- Driving while intoxicated – Impaired driving due to alcohol or drugs frequently results in serious or even fatal collisions.
- Fatigued driving – Every year, serious accidents, including head-on collisions, are caused by falling asleep at the wheel or driving while fatigued.
- Reckless driving - Drivers who attempt to pass vehicles by swerving into oncoming traffic or who are speeding and lose control of their vehicle may cause catastrophic collisions.
Filing a personal injury lawsuit for monetary compensation can be time-consuming and difficult. Having a lawyer on your side can ensure that you meet the requirements of your lawsuit and that the statute of limitations is met. To file a lawsuit in Texas, you generally have two years from the date of the accident. You must prepare and file your lawsuit within the two-year period allotted.
The amount of time you have to file your suit is critical because failing to do so may result in your case not being heard at all. It may also imply that the at-fault driver is not required to compensate you for the expenses incurred as a result of the accident.
If you do not file your personal injury lawsuit within the time limit, your accident-related expenses become your responsibility. Allowing time to elapse may jeopardize your lawsuit. Our team can begin preparing your lawsuit and ensure that it is filed on time to comply with the Illinois statute of limitations.TYPES OF INJURIES AFTER A HEAD-ON CRASH
Following a head-on collision, drivers may sustain a variety of injuries, including:
- Head injuries, including concussions, and traumatic brain injury
- Neck and back injuries, including spinal injuries causing paraplegia or quadriplegia
- Broken bones in the limbs,
- Facial injuries, including fractures
- Soft tissue damage
- Injuries to the knees, hips or legs
- Amputations or the loss of use of limbs
The more serious your injury, the more compensation you should typically receive from the driver who caused the accident. The driver who caused your head-on collision should have auto insurance that covers your medical costs, including any future or ongoing medical care that you will require.
Injuries to victims of head-on collisions can have a lengthy and painful recovery process. Head-on collisions accounted for 10.9% of all traffic fatalities in 2019, with over 3,613 separate car accidents according to the Insurance Information Institute. Those who do survive are frequently subjected to a variety of injuries that can be financially, physically, and emotionally taxing to overcome.
Head-on collisions can result in severe injuries that take years to heal, increasing the victim's medical costs. Head-on collisions frequently result in catastrophic injuries, property damage, and car wrecks, especially when driving at high speeds.
Texas law allows you to be compensated for injuries caused by another person's negligence. In many car accident cases, the following types of damages are involved:
- Past and future medical bills: The cost of medical bills required to treat your injury in the past and in the future.
- Earning capacity lost in the past and in the future: The amount of money you could have earned if you had not been injured.
- Pain and suffering: Compensation is allowed for past and future pain and suffering based on a jury's common sense, knowledge, and sense of justice. In terms of settling a claim, determining the value of pain and suffering is done by imagining what a jury – who does not know anyone involved – will think the value is.
- Past and future mental anguish: How your physical injury has caused significant mental anguish, to the point where it is more than disappointment, resentment, embarrassment, or anger, and how it will continue to do so in the future.
- Physical impairment in the past and future: How you have been physically impaired in the past as a result of your injury, and how you will be physically impaired in the future. Texas' version of "loss of enjoyment of life" is physical impairment.
- Disfigurement in the past and in the future: How the injury physically disfigured you in the past and how it will disfigure you in the future.
- Loss of services: If a husband or wife is unable to perform their normal household duties as a result of the injury, they are entitled to compensation.
- Wrongful death damages: When a person dies, the types of recovery differ from those in injury cases where the person survives. Because the person is no longer alive, they are unable to file a claim for their own injuries. When a person dies as a result of negligence or an intentional act, his or her family or estate must file any claims for damages. In Texas, there are two paths to recovery in wrongful death cases: the Wrongful Death Act and Survival Causes of Action.
- Property damage: Property damage, such as damage to your car, rental car, storage, towing, total loss, diminished value, computer, phone, or glasses, is recoverable in an accident case.
