Head-On Collision in Charlotte, NC

Hundreds of Millions of Dollars Recovered on Behalf of Our Clients

A head-on collision is one of the most serious types of car accidents because the devastating impact often causes catastrophic injuries and fatalities. When you consider the energy created when two vehicles collide head-on, it is understandable how victims can suffer substantial harm. Although head-on crashes make up about two percent of all accidents, they result in approximately 10 percent of U.S. traffic deaths.

If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury in a head-on collision that was caused by the negligence of another party, our Charlotte personal injury attorneys at Price, Petho & Anderson can help you hold the liable parties responsible for their careless and reckless actions and help you recover your entitled compensation. While we understand that no amount of money can undo the damage done in the car accident, monetary damages can help you pay for past and future medical care, rehabilitative services, lost earnings, and pain and suffering.

How Head-On Collisions Occur

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), head-on collisions typically happen when a motorist makes an “unintentional” maneuver. This generally means a maneuver a driver makes when falling asleep behind the wheel, traveling at high speeds while negotiating a curve, or engaging in distracted driving.

Many of these types of accidents occur when a driver over-corrects for leaving the roadway and steers into oncoming traffic. Furthermore, speeding and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs are also common contributing factors in many head-on crashes.

Our Charlotte car accident attorneys can investigate the circumstances of the crash to determine what exactly occurred and who at fault. Remember, North Carolina is a contributory negligence state, meaning if a plaintiff is found to be even one percent liable, they may not be able to recover compensation.
