Manchester Head-On Collision Accident Attorney
Car accidents of every kind are terrifying, dangerous events, but when it’s a head-on collision, the level of terror and danger are escalated.
In a head-on collision, the negligent motorist is likely to be highly impaired, either by personal choices or as a result of a medical condition.
If you or someone you love has been injured or worse by a negligent driver in a head-on collision, don’t wait to consult with an experienced car accident attorney in your area.
According to the Insurance Information Institute (III), head-on collisions are exactly as dangerous as they seem. In fact, in 2019, they accounted for 3,613 traffic fatalities nationally, which translates to nearly 11 percent of all traffic fatalities and is second only to angle collisions.
Further, III research data shows when vehicles traveling at 56 miles per hour collide head-on, crash dummies come away with any combination of the following serious injuries:
- Severe brain injuries (TBI)
- Severe neck injuries
- Leg fractures
You can expect head-on collision injuries to be exceptionally serious, and might include the following.
Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), because they affect the brain, are difficult to predict - other than the fact that they are often extremely serious. Victims of TBIs often face uncertain futures compromised by lasting and/or chronic physical and emotional deficits. Common conditions include:
- Severe mood swings
- Increased anxiety
- Sleep disturbances
- Depressive episodes
- Memory problems
- Concentration problems
- Balance and coordination problems
- Trouble with cognitive processing
- Slurred speech
- Comprehension issues
Because the neck is central to overall movement, even a relatively minor injury can be especially painful, lead to chronic pain, and seriously limit a victim’s range of motion. If the injury is serious – such as a spinal cord injury – the consequences are much more serious. If the spinal cord is severed or badly damaged, it means permanent paralysis and a lifetime of medical and personal care.
Broken bones and fractures are seriously painful injuries that are slow to heal. Complicated breaks, it can lead to permanent health issues, physical disability, and chronic pain. Some people require multiple surgeries and may suffer permanent limitations following a broken bone.
