Committed Portland Attorney Represents Head-On Accident Cases
Head-on collisions are more likely than other types of accidents to cause catastrophic injuries, or prove fatal. That’s because the force of impact is so much greater when two cars collide head-to-head. The impact can be even greater if one of the vehicles is a large truck, bus or is otherwise larger than the other car.
Refusing to Back Down
Victims of head-on collisions often face heavy costs from surgeries, rehabilitation or lost wages from being unable to work. More than any other kind of accident, head-on collisions require a lawyer who will not back down from a fight with an insurance company that is denying claims or causing delays. Portland attorney Sarah Nelson knows insurance company tactics inside and out. She won’t be fooled and will go after the maximum amount of compensation you deserve after suffering a traumatic head-on accident.
How Did this Happen?
Head-on collisions can happen in a number of ways, often when a driver crosses the median into oncoming traffic. This can be a result of various things, including:
- Driver fatigue
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Poor road conditions
- Trying to pass a car on a hill or other blind stretch of roadway
These collisions can also occur when one driver turns the wrong way on a one-way street. However the accident occurred, injuries sustained from a head-on collision are often severe and can prove fatal. You need to get an experienced, committed attorney on your side as soon as possible to help guide you through this difficult time and get all the help you can.
