What Is a Head-On Collision?
A head-on collision is one in which the fronts of two cars collide. According to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), about 14% of all car accidents are head-on crashes. It is an especially dangerous type of accident because the occupants in both cars are exposed to severe and forceful impact injuries.
These dangerous accidents can result in the following injuries:
- Head and facial injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Broken and fractured bones
- Internal and organ damage
- Chest and abdominal injuries
We will obtain your medical, rehab, and therapy records to prove the cause and costs of your injuries. We can also request a written prognosis to determine the costs of care you will require in the future.
What Are the Common Causes of Head-On Accidents?
Our car accident lawyer serving Joppatowne can collect evidence that proves the cause of your accident, which may be:
- Wrong way driving
- Improper lane changes
- Distracted driving
- Driving under the influence
- Driving while fatigued driving
- Reckless driving
The evidence file we build to prove the accident’s cause may contain the crash report, photos and videos of the accident scene, witness statements, and accident reconstruction reports.
Another section of your case file may cover proof of your post-accident costs. It could consist of medical records and bills, vehicle repair and replacement estimates, and proof of income.

What Types of Compensation Can You Recoup From the At-Fault Driver?
According to Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 11–109, you can recover the following economic damages after your accident:
- Medical expenses
- Loss of earnings
- Loss of earning capacity
- Property damage costs
According to Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 11–108, you can also recover non-economic damages, including:
- Pain and suffering
- Physical impairment or disfigurement
- Mental anguish and emotional trauma
If your family lost one of their members in a head-on collision, you have our deepest sympathies and our commitment to recover wrongful death damages on your behalf. We may demand compensation for the decedent’s funeral and burial costs and your loss of income and domestic support.
How Long Do You Have to File a Lawsuit for Compensation?
You usually have three years to file a lawsuit after an accident. If you or a loved one was injured, the clock on your lawsuit starts running on the date of the accident, according to Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 5-101.
The clock on your family’s wrongful death statute of limitations typically starts running on the date of a loved one’s demise, according to Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 3-904. If the statute of limitations runs out and you haven’t filed suit, you could be left with no legal recourse that compels the negligent driver to compensate you. Our law firm can help you avoid this costly risk to your case.
