A front-end car accident can be one of the most devastating experiences that can occur while driving. Also known as head-on crashes, these collisions often happen at high speeds.

Head-on collisions most commonly occur when one driver crosses over the middle lane into oncoming traffic. When one negligent driver fails to stay in their lane, it can endanger the lives of everyone involved.

Following a front-end crash, a skilled car wreck attorney could be a vital asset in your recovery. The financial burden of getting medical treatment following a severe crash can be significant, but a successful lawsuit against the responsible driver could ease this burden. A Columbus front-end car accident lawyer could review your case and provide you with an understanding of the claims process, as well as your chances of recovering damages.

Causes of a Head-On Collision

These accidents primarily occur when one driver drifts over the centerline of a road or highway and collides with oncoming traffic. One of the primary causes of this drifting is when a driver becomes distracted or operates their vehicle while intoxicated.

Front-end crashes also frequently occur when a driver navigates a sharp curve. By taking a curve too tight, a motorist could enter the other lane and collide head-on with oncoming traffic. This is common when a motorist is speeding and attempts to overcorrect.

Establishing Negligence in Front-End Car Wreck Cases

To recover monetary damages for a head-on collision, a Columbus front-end car accident attorney must show a jury that the other party was at fault. This requires proof of negligence. If a plaintiff proves that the defendant driver was reckless or inattentive while behind the wheel, they could be entitled to financial compensation.

When one driver is entirely at fault, the ensuing litigation could be straight forward. However, liability is not always clear. In some cases, both drivers may be at-fault or a defendant may try to place some blame on the injured party to mitigate their liability.

In Columbus, an injured claimant may still recover compensation if the court finds them to be 49 percent or less at fault for the collision. In these situations, a jury may award the plaintiff damages reduced by their percentage of fault. If an individual is more than 50 percent to blame for their injuries, they may not recover any compensation. A dedicated lawyer could help an injured victim recover the damages they deserve.

Time Limit to File Car Accident Suit

A person injured in a front-end crash will only have the opportunity to recover damages if they file their lawsuit on time. There is a strict deadline that applies to filing civil lawsuits.

If a plaintiff fails to bring their lawsuit within two years of their accident, the court could dismiss their claim and they may lose the opportunity to obtain damages. A Columbus attorney could help ensure that an injured party’s car accident claim for a front-end collision is filed on time.

Call a Columbus Front-End Car Accident Attorney

Recovering monetary damages after a front-end crash can be a lengthy process, even when it is clear the other driver is at fault. Defendants and insurance companies could develop strong defenses to try and avoid liability.

A Columbus front-end car accident lawyer could work to avoid delay and help you recover the damages you need. To discuss your claim, schedule a case evaluation today.
