Head-On Collisions

Experienced Columbus car accident attorney who gets results

Some of the most dangerous car accidents are head-on collisions. The people involved in these accidents can suffer very serious injuries that are often fatal. Those who survive may be left with permanent injuries. The car accident lawyers at Smith Law Office protect the rights of victims and help them retrieve financial compensation.

People injured in car accidents are often left with mounting medical expenses that can quickly spiral out of control. Meanwhile, they are unable to work because of their injuries. It can become very difficult for the injured and their families to make ends meet. Ohio head-on accident attorney Scott Elliot Smith fights to hold negligent parties accountable.

Head-on collisions almost always are a result of negligent driving. A car may cross over into another lane of traffic and travel in the wrong direction because a driver was:

  • Drunk
  • Distracted
  • Drowsy
  • Operating recklessly

Insurance companies are supposed to help people when they're hurt in a car accident. But these companies are more concerned with profits, which is why they try to keep payments low. They have lawyers on their side who help them do that. That's why you need an experienced car accident lawyer who will look out for your best interests.
