Attorney Fighting for Victims of Head-On Collisions in Texas

Head-on collisions involve tremendous force and can be devastating to anyone involved in such a crash. When you are hit head-on, you take the full force of the impact. Even with modern cars designed to crumple in order to protect the driver and front-seat passengers, the injuries caused by a head-on collision can be severe. If you were injured in a head-on collision, our team understands what you are going through. We have helped many other people who have experienced this dangerous type of car accident, and we have firsthand knowledge of what victims of these collisions may experience. Getting the best medical care after these collisions, with specialists who treat brain injuries, TBI, concussions and all the other potential injuries is part of what we do for our clients.

You may even still be in the hospital due to the extent of your injuries. Attorney Kadlec is ready to step in and represent you in the claims process so that you can focus on your own healing. Our goal is to recover the compensation you need swiftly and with minimal stress for you. By connecting our clients who are in need of medical referrals to the right doctors and medical providers, we help our clients get the medical care they need from doctors who will continue to work with us, and testify in trial about the injuries and treatment needed.

Houston Attorney Investigating the Negligence Behind Head-On Collisions

When a head-on accident has occurred, it is a reasonably secure bet that one driver had engaged in negligent driving practices. Such collisions do not just happen when both drivers are exercising the appropriate level of caution. One of the first things our legal team will do is to investigate the cause of your accident so that we can prove the other driver's carelessness. Common forms of driver negligence that result in head-on collisions include:

  • Wrong way driving - Cautious drivers do not find themselves traveling the wrong way down a highway. Wrong-way head-on collisions may take place at high speeds on interstates or other major highways, on freeway interchanges, on one-way streets, or in other locations where drivers enter oncoming traffic.
  • Careless passing - Drivers must be cautious when passing slower vehicles and using a lane going the opposite direction. Failing to watch for oncoming traffic or merge back into one's own lane can cause a head-on collision.
  • Intoxication - Drunk drivers are notorious for unpredictably veering out of their lane and striking a vehicle going the opposite direction.

These are only a few examples of the types of careless driving behaviors that may lead to a head-on collision. Attorney Kadlec and his team will meticulously investigate the circumstances surrounding a collision to determine what types of negligent actions may have led to your accident.

Law Firm in Harris County for Head-On Collision Injuries

Catastrophic injuries are not uncommon after high-speed head-on collisions. The forces involved in many of these deadly accidents can inflict severe harm. Injuries that are commonly caused by head-on collisions include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries - A head injury or other forms of trauma that cause damage to the brain and nervous system can be life-altering, and these injuries often lead to extended periods of in-patient care.
  • Internal injuries - The force of a seatbelt or airbag connecting with a person who has been thrown forward by the force of the crash can cause injuries to internal bodily organs and tissues. These injuries may necessitate surgical repair.
  • Disfigurement - A person's face has little protection during a head-on collision. Lacerations from broken glass, broken bones in the face, and burns may permanently alter a person's appearance. Additional compensation may be available for those facing lasting disfigurement.

Lawyer Fighting for All Available Compensation After a Head-On Collision

Following a head-on collision, the types of compensable damages you can receive may go far beyond lost wages and medical care. You may also be eligible to recover compensation for:

  • Future medical care
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment in life
  • Loss of future income
  • Emotional trauma

If the conduct of the at-fault driver was particularly egregious, exemplary or punitive damages may be awarded as well. If Attorney Kadlec believes that these types of damages are available, he will fight for them on your behalf.
