Common causes of head-on collisions
Head-on collisions in Tulsa often occur on streets or road with no barriers between oncoming traffic. All it takes is one small mistake on these two-lane roads to result in a head-on collision. Some of the most common causes of these crashes include the at-fault driver, who may have been:
- Texting while driving
- Talking on a cell phone while driving
- Driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs
- Illegally passing another car
- Falling asleep at the wheel
Is this how your accident happened? Or were the circumstances different? Either way, we want to investigate your crash as soon as possible and get to the bottom of exactly what happened.
The high cost of head-on collision injuries
Because of the combined force of both cars hitting head-on, these types of wrecks can cause severe damage. Some of the life-altering injuries that may be sustained in a head-on crash include:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Loss of limbs
- Spinal cord injury (SCI) and paralysis
- Internal injuries
- Broken bones
- Fatal injuries
Even seemingly minor injuries, like whiplash from a head-on collision, can be indicators of more severe underlying damage. That’s why you need full compensation for all of your costs, including medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering. However, negotiating a fair settlement with the insurance company is not an easy task. An experienced head-on collision lawyer can help.
How we can help you after your accident
The clock is ticking after a serious accident. In Oklahoma, you have two years from the date of your head-on collision to take legal action against the at-fault driver. This deadline (known as the statute of limitations) might seem like a long time. But the longer you wait, the harder it often becomes to build a strong legal case. Evidence disappears. Memories fade. Witnesses move away.
Insurance companies know this. That's why the other driver's insurance company has likely already started investigating your collision. And don't expect them to share their findings with you. They're doing this work because they likely only care about one thing – making your claim go away while paying you as little as possible.
We can help you level the playing field. We've been working on such complicated cases for more than four decades. We know how to analyze accident reports. We know how to track down witnesses. And we frequently consult with accident reconstruction experts. We then present our evidence to the other driver's insurance company. Most agree to negotiate with us. If not, we're prepared to file a lawsuit and take them to court.
