Only about two percent of all traffic accidents are head-on collisions, but these crashes account for about 10 percent of fatal traffic accidents. This statistic demonstrates how deadly head-on collisions are. Those who survive are often severely injured. These cases are extraordinary in their nature and the level of damages they cause.

Head-on Collision Investigation
The investigation stage of a head-on collision is crucial and should begin immediately. Important evidence may be lost forever if you wait. Police do not delay in cleaning up the crash site to allow traffic to flow again. People at the scene often do not reach out to law enforcement or attorneys to give their point of view. Videos that might have caught relevant details may be on loop and tape over crucial evidence.
Proving Head-On Collision Liability
Where exactly did the cars collide? You need to know this in order to prove liability in a head-on collision. Finding the answer to this puzzle takes substantial experience and hard work. Our lawyer reviews debris scatter, skid marks, gouges and ultimate location of the vehicles themselves to pinpoint which lane the cars collided in.
We delve deep into what may have actually caused the crash, for example:
- Did the driver nod off while driving home from a double shift or travelling a long distance?
- Was the driver focused on a text message or other distraction when she or he drifted into your lane?
- Was the driver intoxicated or under the influence of drugs?
- Was the driver speeding on wet pavement or weaving in and out of traffic when she lost control?
Our Georgia car accident law firm also uses advanced technology to reconstruct the crash and produce helpful visuals for jurors and judges.
