Lehigh County Head On Accident Lawyer
Head-on collisions are often the most serious types of collisions. Because impact is often made at higher speeds than rear-end collisions, head-on collisions often cause large amounts of property damage and physical injuries. For over 30 years, the Brod Law Firm and its experienced Lehigh County head on collision car accident attorneys have been the firm Allentown area residents have looked to for care and representation following any type of auto accident. Depending on the size and weight of the vehicles involved in the collision, our Lehigh County head on accident attorneys see a range in the injuries and property damage our clients suffer. Property damages can range from minor to total and injuries can be slight to severe. Unfortunately, many fatalities are the sad result of head-on collisions.
The head-on collision occurs when the front bumper of one car makes contact with the front bumper of another car or with a stationary object like a tree or pole. Often, this happens when distracted drivers drift into the wrong lane on a two-way highway, fall asleep at the wheel or drive the wrong way down a one-way street. These distracted drivers often dispute liability, so in Pennsylvania, retaining a car accident lawyer is often necessary to assist in proving liability.
Most cars are designed to crumple when they are hit from the front, and this can help to absorb some of the impact. When two vehicles collide front-end to front-end, both vehicles can absorb some of the shock, somewhat protecting the passengers inside. When a vehicle collides with a stationary object, however, the object does not crush down, so the vehicle absorbs all of the impact. As a result, accidents involving a vehicle and a stationary object cause the most fatalities.
Victims of head-on collisions can seek damages against the other driver only when the plaintiff can prove that the defendant was negligent. This means that, under law in Lehigh County, car accident attorneys and their clients assume the responsibility or burden of proof in proving negligence on the part of the defendant.
