Because of the force involved when two vehicles experience a head-on collision, the injuries to those riding in the vehicles often are severe, potentially leading to long hospitalizations and extensive stays at a rehabilitation facility.
If another driver’s reckless behavior led to your injuries, you could seek damages with the help of your head-on collisions lawyer taking cases in Peachtree Corners. Bader Scott Injury Lawyers will always have your best interests in mind, working toward earning the settlement you deserve.
We are Ready to Help With Your Personal Injury Case
Hiring us as your attorney to defend your right to seek compensation after an accident that another driver caused can provide several benefits for you and your family. These can include the following:
Taking Over Negotiations With the Insurer
Victims in serious car crashes may hear from the insurance company representing the other driver within a few days of the accident. The insurer may even make a settlement offer to you.
Although it can be tempting to try to settle quickly, we would not recommend this. You need to have a full diagnosis of your injuries before you settle. If your doctors find more health problems related to the accident after you settle, you cannot go back and try to negotiate a greater award.
When you hire Bader Scott Injury Lawyers, our team will take over the negotiations with the insurance company for you. Our goal always will be to achieve the settlement that reflects all of your injuries in the shortest amount of time possible.
Giving You Peace of Mind
While you are recovering from significant injuries in a car crash, you probably will not want the added stress of fighting to receive a proper financial settlement.
By hiring a Peachtree Corners lawyer familiar with head-on collisions cases, you can focus all of your attention on healing, completing your physical therapy appointments, and spending time with your family. Let us focus on achieving the settlement offer you deserve so you can focus on your health.
Proving What Happened in the Crash
If the other driver’s insurance company is not willing to accept blame for the accident on behalf of its driver, we could be facing a contentious situation in trying to achieve the settlement you deserve.
When representing you, we will never back down from a fight. We will work hard to collect facts in the case to prove that you did not do anything wrong. This can involve many tasks, including:
- Interviewing witnesses
- Verifying the police report
- Studying video and photographs from the scene
- Hiring an accident recreation expert
Helping You Receive the Medical Care You Need
After a head-on accident in which you suffered significant injuries, you may have concerns about whether you will be able to fully recover.
Sometimes after a crash like this, you may need to see many medical specialists to determine the full extent of your injuries. They can also help you determine the best path forward for returning to the life you had prior to the accident.
Because we have represented many clients over the years after similarly serious car accidents, we have some ideas about the types of care you may want to try. We can provide advice to help you find specialists and treatments that you and your doctor can consider.
Tracking Down All of the Items for Which You Could Receive Reimbursement
We can help recover reimbursement for many items related to the accident, including:
- Pain and suffering
- Emergency medical care
- Ongoing medical care
- An estimate of medical care you will need in the future
- The income you were unable to earn during your recovery
- Estimate of any reduction of income you will have in the future
- Incidental costs related to your injury, such as home health care
- Disfigurement or disability
- Reduction in quality of life
We have won many six- and seven-figure settlements for our clients over the years. We will work to win a fair settlement for you, too.
Understanding the Severity of Head-On Collisions
Head-on crashes often result in extremely serious injuries. According to the Insurance Information Institute (III), a head-on crash at speeds of 40 mph and greater begins to negate the benefits of the vehicle’s safety equipment, such as airbags.
Speeds greater than 55 mph in a head-on collision can lead to severe brain injuries, severe neck injuries, and leg fractures.
Possibility of Fatal Collisions
If your loved one suffered a fatality in a head-on crash in which the other driver was at fault, you might have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit, as specified in OCGA §51-4-2. Our law firm can protect your rights to receive a settlement in this type of case, too.
Let Us Help You Receive the Award You Deserve
After a serious crash, you may be facing quite a few serious problems. You may have concerns about your long–term health outlook. You may have worries about the rising medical costs you are facing. You may wonder if you will ever be able to enjoy the same quality of life as you had before the crash.
Certainly, a financial settlement for your pain and suffering and emotional trauma cannot give you back the life you had before the other driver hit you. However, receiving an award can help with financial issues related to the crash, giving you the time you need to heal and to focus on your family.
We will Fight as Hard as We Can to Protect Your Rights
We have seen far too often the significant hardships our clients have after serious accidents like this. We will not allow an unfair insurance company to treat our clients poorly.
We fight to achieve the best possible settlement for our clients. Your Peachtree Corners lawyer will not back down when insurers try to place red tape in the way of your head-on collisions case. Call Bader Scott Injury Lawyers at (404) 888-8888 as soon as possible for a free case review.
