Serious accidents demand serious representation
It’s every driver’s nightmare: being hit head-on by an oncoming car. Your life may be changed forever. You might have serious injuries that take weeks or months to heal, or you may have a permanent injury, such as a brain or spinal cord injury. You may have even lost a loved one in a head-on crash. The Houston head-on collision attorneys at Smith & Hassler, Attorneys at Law serve victims of these accidents throughout Texas.
Head-on collisions can lead to complex legal cases
When two cars collide head-on, it’s almost always because someone was driving the wrong way or drifted into the oncoming lane. Usually, the cause of the crash is either driving under the influence or falling asleep at the wheel. Sometimes, distracted drivers drift into the oncoming lane and cause a crash. Occasionally, the culprit might be a mechanical issue, such as bad steering or brakes.
Just because head-on car accidents usually involve serious negligence doesn’t mean liability is clear. Witnesses may disagree on whether you or the other driver was going the wrong way. Police reports and other evidence from the scene may be ambiguous. The insurance company will take advantage of this confusion to try to get you to settle for less than you deserve – or deny your claim entirely.
At the end of the day, the insurance company’s goal is to save money. Head-on collisions usually cause serious injuries, and that means you represent serious exposure to their bottom line. They’ll put their best lawyers, adjusters and investigators on your case. You need hard-hitting representation to fight back.
