Head-On Auto Accidents

Legal Assistance for People Seriously Injured and Families of those Killed in Washington Head-On Collisions

Head-On Auto Accidents If you have been seriously injured or disabled or you have had a loved one killed in a Washington head-on motor vehicle accident, you may be seeking answers to your legal questions. The Farber Law Group, a personal injury law firm in Bellevue, Washington, may be of assistance to you.

Head-On Motor Vehicle Accidents

Head-on collisions are some of the most devastating motor vehicle accidents and are deadlier than other types of accidents because of the high forces involved. The force of two vehicles traveling in opposite directions hitting each other nearly always totals the vehicles and causes catastrophic injuries or even death to the occupants of the vehicles. The results are even worse if the vehicles are mismatched as when a semi-truck collides with a passenger vehicle.

Causes of Head-On Collisions

Head on collisions are often caused by negligent driving in the following situations:

  • Passing
  • Making a u-turn or crossing a highway
  • Failing to negotiate a turn which is often caused by driver inexperience or speeding
  • Alcohol or drugs
  • Driver drowsiness
  • Driver distraction
  • Driver confusion
  • Suicide

In some cases, roadway factors can contribute to car crashes. Factors such as snow or ice on the highway or misplaced or confusing signage are factors that can contribute to an accident.

Injuries in Head-On Collisions

In a head-on collision, the lives of those involved change in a split second. Many times people suffer catastrophic injuries such as traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury including paralysis, blunt force trauma injuries and broken bones. These types of injuries often require care in a trauma unit and lengthy rehabilitation, and the road to recovery is often long. Many times, the victims never fully recover.

Sadly, many times there are multiple fatalities in head-on collisions.

Client Reviews
To anyone looking for legal service, you won't find a better law team than Mr Farber and Kelly. They are very caring of your case and treat you like family. I have used them a few times and highly recommend them. Michael
Herb truly had my best interests in mind and was very knowledgeable about the law surrounding my case. He was fair and very upfront about potential outcomes of the case. I believe that he worked tirelessly to get the best settlement. Jan
Herb and team are excellent! As someone unfamiliar with the legal system, they did a great job walking us through every step so we wouldn't get overwhelmed. Our case was emotional and they never hesitated to answer a question, empathize with the challenges of the process, and at times just listen. Over the years we became close and I hope to stay connect to them even though the case is over. They helped us start a new chapter. He always made the extra effort by driving to our home when we couldn't meet him. Who makes house calls these days? Herb does! Not only did I feel like I was in good hands but I genuinely enjoyed working with them. How many people can say that about their attorney? Ashley A.
