What Causes a Head-On Collision?
Head-on collisions can occur for many reasons, but they involve one vehicle crashing into another, generally with both vehicles facing each other. With this type of accident, the cause can be related to numerous factors, including:
- Texting and driving
- Falling asleep at the wheel
- Dropping the phone
- Reckless driving, such as illegally passing
- Drunk or drugged driving
- Road conditions
A head-on collision can occur very quickly, often without any warning. The victim may have tried to swerve out of the way to avoid being struck, potentially striking other drivers or anything else in the way. When this type of injury occurs, you may be frightened about what is occurring and what the future holds. Let our trusted, experienced attorneys help you through this difficult process so we can offer the guidance and support you need.
What Makes a Head-On Collision So Risky?
A number of factors play a role in why a head-on collision occurs, but no matter the cause, there are often numerous complications that come from these types of accidents. The force of two vehicles striking each other, often at 30 miles an hour or more, can be devastating. Head-on collisions often involve the engines of two cars striking each other. That may increase the risk of fires and explosions, chemical leaks and burns, and intense injury, especially as glass and metal come into the passenger compartment of the vehicle.
With so much force, there are numerous potential injuries that can come from these types of accidents, including:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Serious lacerations and punctures
- Shoulder and neck injury
- Head injuries and concussions
- Spinal column damage
- Disfiguring injuries.
Our St. Paul head-on collision accident lawyers understand the impact of this type of accident. We also recognize that this type of accident can cause long-term losses. Many people who suffer from head-on injuries like those here may need long-term recovery. They also may suffer complications, including:
- Rehabilitation needs
- Cosmetic surgery needs
- Reconstructive surgery
- Infection control
- Burn treatment.
Many times, this means being unable to get back to life quickly. It may also mean that you are likely to suffer from pain for some time. When all of this happens as a result of another person’s negligence, it is even more frustrating and worrisome. That is where our legal team can help you. When you hire St. Paul head-on collision accident attorneys, you get exceptional legal support and dedicated attorneys who are ready to fight hard for your recovery.

Proving Fault in a Head-on Collision
Another complication that often comes from a head-on collision is proving fault. Often, the initial decision about fault is based on what one party tells the police officer. Yet, sometimes, proving fault is not that easy, and you may need to show that you are actually the victim. No matter who has been designated on a police report as being at fault, our legal team will work closely with you to ensure the responsible party is held accountable.
Proving head-on collision fault is complicated, because the other party may deny that they did anything wrong. They may claim that you were the one who crossed the center line in the accident or that your behavior caused them to swerve. Sometimes, the other driver will seem to have the upper hand, especially if the evidence after the accident does not make it clear who is at fault.
Let us work to prove that you are owed compensation. Our St. Paul head-on collision accident lawyers will work hard to gather evidence to prove your case. In every situation, we work hard to support the full investigation of your accident. We will work to gather evidence from a range of sources, including:
- Photos and videos of the accident from area cameras
- Incident reports from the police at the scene
- Witness statements
- Your statement
- Medical records from the other driver
- Expert statements data
- Accident recreation tools.
Our team knows what is on the line. We will work extensively to protect your right to compensation. Our head-on collision accident lawyers in St. Paul are committed to providing you with outstanding support. Even if the police report says you were to blame, and you believe you were not at fault, we want to hear from you. Set up a free consultation to discuss your case with us.
Do Not Settle Your Case Without Legal Representation
When the time comes to file a claim for your case, do not settle with an insurance company without having attorneys by your side. Even if you believe that the other party will pay for the medical bills you have, you likely are owed much more than just those bills.
In a head-on collision, this is critically important. Insurance companies will attempt to settle your claim right away. They may also try to shift the blame to you (even a portion of it). This could minimize the compensation paid to you. Our goal is to avoid this – and we will work to ensure you receive the maximum compensation owed to you.
When you hire our St. Paul head-on collision accident attorneys, we go to work minimizing this risk. We do this by:
- Calculating all of your losses for you
- Handling the claim process with the insurance company
- Answering any questions the insurance company has
- Minimizing any invasion of your privacy, in phone records or medical records they request
- Limiting their ability to harass you.
You do not have to settle immediately. You need to settle fairly. For that, let our legal team go to work to protect you.
What Is Your Head-On Accident Worth?
When you meet with our attorneys, we will first provide you with insight into whether we believe you have a case. If so, we will then discuss with you how this accident has impacted you.
