After a head-on accident, it may be difficult to consider the legal issues surrounding your case.

These accidents occur on the streets, expressways, and freeways throughout the San Jose area and can leave innocent people struggling to survive or fatally injured. That’s when our team at The Swanson Law Group can help.

When the insurance company calls…

The insurance company of the at-fault driver may contact you and try to speak with you about your injuries. They may offer a settlement. You should be aware that these companies work hard to reduce the value of legitimate claims and will attempt to get you to accept pennies on the dollar for your injuries. You need to ensure your right to fair compensation is protected. Our legal team at The Swanson Law Group focuses on taking down insurance companies that don’t want to pay fair compensation. Our goal is to seek full justice for the people we serve — and we do not compromise.

The right law firm makes all the difference in the value of a settlement

When our highly competent and integrous legal team of Ben Swanson, Esq., Zaneta Conroy, Esq., Greg Schaffer, Esq., and Ethan Niedermeyer, Esq. take on a case, we don’t just advise our clients to accept a settlement; we perform a thorough evaluation ourselves. We usually discover that the insurance company has made an offer much lower than our client deserves — and we don’t compromise, but rather take them on with confidence. We take down insurance companies when they attempt to use this strategy with our clients. If they don’t come up with a fair settlement offer within a reasonable time, we move ahead with a lawsuit. As trial lawyers, we are persuasive and fully prepared in court.

Types of injuries in head-on accidents

The injuries sustained in a head-on accident are often very serious, catastrophic, or fatal. If the victim survives, they may require months or a lifetime of care and treatment. Some of the common types of injuries sustained in head-on collisions include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Spinal cord injuries (paraplegia, quadriplegia)
  • Disfiguring injuries
  • Fractures
  • Head injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Internal injuries
  • Severe soft tissue injuries
  • Injuries to ankles, feet, and legs
  • Injuries to arms, shoulders, wrists

Causes of head-on collisions

A head-on collision can occur due to the following situations:

  • Drunk driver: An alcohol or drug-impaired driver may swerve into oncoming traffic or drive the wrong way on a street or freeway, causing a deadly impact.
  • Distracted driver: A driver who is busy texting, eating, daydreaming, or talking on the phone may drift into an oncoming lane, colliding with an innocent driver.
  • Dangerous passing: Aggressive drivers may take risks when there’s not enough room to pass a vehicle safely, which can cause them to hit an oncoming car.
  • Wrong-way driving: A driver who is new to the area or who makes a serious error could drive the wrong way on a one-way street, freeway ramp, or other roadway.
