Front-end car wrecks, also known as head-on collisions, occur when the front of two cars collide. These crashes are often life-changing and can cause devastating damages and injuries. Fortunately, some of these losses can be recovered with the help of an auto collision attorney.

While no amount of compensation can undo the events of your incident, monetary awards can allow you to place your focus on healing and getting your life back on track. If you were involved in a front-end car accident in Buffalo, contact our team today to begin reviewing your legal options.

Common Injuries Resulting from Front-End Car Wrecks

Head-on collisions in Buffalo are frequently caused by scenarios that include, but are not limited to, distracted or drunk driving, failing to yield, speeding, failing to exercise caution in bad weather, and other reckless behaviors.

Front-end wrecks are most commonly seen at intersections such as traffic lights and four-way stops, busy highways, and one-way streets. Injuries that result from these crashes can be catastrophic in nature, including:

In some instances, wrongful death can occur. Regardless of the circumstances, a compassionate attorney from Richmond Vona, LLC is ready to listen to your story to understand how an event has impacted your life and advise you of the legal options you may have to recover for your losses.

Determining Liability for a Head-On Collision

For Buffalo front-end car crashes, liability is assigned by insurance companies after evaluating all details of the event, including whether either of the drivers violated any traffic laws. Other factors, such as road conditions in inclement weather, who had the right of way, or if either driver was under the influence of drugs or alcohol, will also play a role in apportioning fault between the parties.

One of the first steps an attorney will take when helping an injured individual establish liability or challenge accusations of shared blame is immediately conducting an investigation. This includes interviewing witnesses and pulling any available camera footage from stop lights, dash cams, businesses, or residences. In some instances, accident reconstructions may be necessary, and for more serious cases, black box or event recorder data can also be extracted.

Additional Steps

Other ways that our dedicated team can help following a head-on collision include:

  • Ensuring that all insurance deadlines are met
  • Making sure that the injured person gets the benefits that they are entitled to under New York State’s No-fault Law
  • Making sure that the other insurance companies for the drivers involved in the accident are not allowed to talk to the injured person
  • Working to try to resolve the case or to reach a settlement, and, if necessary, filing a lawsuit and guiding the client through the litigation process

Our team is prepared to advocate on your behalf to ensure you get the best possible legal outcome in your given situation.
