Head-on collisions are almost always caused by driver negligence
Obviously, when two cars collide head-on, it means someone was driving the wrong way. Usually, head-on car accidents are caused by drunk drivers or drivers who fall asleep at the wheel. It’s also possible for distracted or reckless drivers to drift into the oncoming lane. You may have even been hit by an out-of-town driver who ended up going the wrong way down a ramp or one-way street.
On occasion, someone other than the driver is responsible for a head-on crash. For example, a problem with brakes or steering could cause a driver to lose control of his or her car and careen into the oncoming lane. Either way, what happened wasn’t your fault. You have a right to pursue fair compensation for your injuries, including medical expenses, lost wages and other losses.
Taking on the insurance company after a head-on collision isn’t easy
You might think it’s obvious who was at fault for your crash, but the insurance company may not see it that way. Witnesses may disagree on which car was going the wrong way. Physical evidence from the scene may be unclear. The insurance company will take advantage of that confusion to reduce or deny your claim. Remember that in North Carolina, “contributory negligence” is in effect – meaning if the insurance company can prove you were even partially at fault, you can’t recover.
That’s why your first call needs to be to an experienced attorney at the Law Offices of Richard Flexner.
