Head-On Collisions

Assigning Responsibility & Recovering Damages

Head on collisions almost always involve drunk driving, loss of control, speeding, or falling asleep at the wheel. As such, negligence on the part of a driver who caused a head on collision is an important component in assigning responsibility and recovering damages. At the law office of Willis & Willis Co., L.P.A., our attorneys work with investigators and accident reconstruction experts in determining why a head on collision happened and why it should have been avoided. Consulting with medical experts and physical therapists, we assess the financial impact of a head on collision and its long-term consequences for our client. In cases involving commercial trucks, we analyze GPS data and entries into a driver's log book to determine if speeding or violations of federal law played a role in causing an accident.

If you have suffered a serious injury or lost a family member due to a head on collision caused by the negligence of another driver, contact car accident attorneys at Willis, Willis & Rizzi Co., L.P.A., today.
