Head-on collisions are among the most dangerous of all car accidents. With the extreme forces involved, when one driver leaves another helpless to avoid a head-on collision, the consequences will often include permanent physical injuries and a lifetime of pain and suffering. Additionally, while head-on collisions account for just two percent of all motor vehicle collisions, statistics show that they are the cause of approximately 10 percent of all accident-related fatalities.
If you have been seriously injured or lost a family member as a result of a head-on collision in Florida, we want to help you. Our attorneys have decades of experience representing accident victims and their families, and we have recovered millions of dollars for our clients’ accident-related losses. You do not deserve to bear the financial burdens of someone else’s tragic mistake. We can negotiate with the insurance companies to secure maximum compensation for your injuries and losses; and, if the insurance companies refuse to settle, we will go to court and fight for your rights at trial.
