Mobile, AL Head-On Collision Lawyers
Our attorneys know how to build strong cases that get results
When two cars collide head-on, the results can be devastating. Drivers and passengers are often left with severe or even life-threatening injuries. Medical bills can become overwhelming. Their lives are often never the same. The Alabama car accident lawyers at Dean Waite & Associates, LLC can help them get the compensation they need and deserve.
Car wrecks involving a head-on collision can be complicated. That’s because there’s often a lot at stake. The negligent driver may deny causing your accident. Plus, that driver’s insurance company knows the high costs often involved in treating injuries. As a result, many insurance companies make “low-ball” offers that don’t come close to covering your costs. That’s why you need an experienced attorney after your car accident.
Why head-on collisions happen
There are different causes of head-on collisions in Alabama. They include:
- Distracted driving (texting, talking on the phone or using GPS, for example)
- Drunk driving
- Reckless driving (such as trying to pass a car on a two-lane road)
- Drowsy driving (driving while extremely tired or actually falling asleep at the wheel)
These types of accidents can be devastating for victims and their families. The crash can leave victims with injuries that leave them temporarily – or permanently – disabled. They may not be able to work, resulting in a loss of income. Meanwhile, the usual bills keep coming in, and it can be hard for families to make ends meet.
Mobile car accident attorney Dean Waite has the experience and resources you need to recover financial compensation after a head-on collision. He knows the tactics insurance companies use to try to avoid responsibility. He approaches each case as if he’s going to trial and fights to hold negligent parties accountable.
Proving liability in head-on collisions can be tricky
You might think it’s obvious who caused a head-on collision. Someone was going the wrong way, and clearly, that means it’s their fault. But it’s often not that simple. Witnesses may disagree on what they saw. Physical evidence from the scene may be ambiguous. The insurance company for the other driver has a strong financial incentive to pin liability on you – especially in a contributory negligence state where even a little negligence on your part is enough to destroy your case. That’s why you need the right lawyer on your side.
Our legal team can investigate your accident to find out what really happened. We know where to look for evidence that the other driver was negligent. We review all documentation, talk to witnesses and may even bring in experts to help. Our focus is on building a strong case that proves another driver’s negligence led to your injuries.
