Amber is heaven sent!! Amber and her team worked very hard on my case!! They checked on me while I had my weekly doctor visits. They were very detailed with my settlement. I didn’t have to second guess anything. I would recommend her to anybody who is in a car accident !! I’ve even referred my love ones who also needed her to represent them in an accident. She made my process as painless as possible. I wish I could give her 10 stars!!

I was referred to Amber by my daughter-in-law. I was involved in two rear end collisions in a three month period. She did an excellent job keeping me informed and explained everything to me, in a manner that I could understand. She followed through with me until I had my settlements.

An Atlanta Head On Collision Lawyer For Serious Injuries

A “head-on” car accident, also known as a “frontal” collision, happens when two vehicles moving in opposite directions crash into each other. Head-on car accidents are rare, but they can happen very quickly, and when they do, the enormous opposing forces involved often result in catastrophic or even fatal injuries. Head-on collision accidents are among the most dangerous and damaging types of crashes, even at a low rate of speed. Having an experienced and effective Atlanta head-on collision lawyer is important to ensure you can recover proper compensation for your injuries.

Causes of Head-On Car Accident Injuries

During a head-on collision, your body is moving forward and is suddenly stopped when it hits some part of the inside of your vehicle, such as a seat belt, airbag, or the car’s interior. The impact of the head-on collision can damage your body in a variety of ways.

Seatbelts Can Cause Injuries in a Head-On Car Accident

Seatbelts can save your life, but can also cause serious injuries in a head-on collision, including collarbone fractures; broken ribs; stomach, liver, or spleen injuries; and lung injuries, including collapsed lungs and lungs pierced by your ribcage.

Catastrophic Injuries Due to Airbags 

Airbags are also designed to save your life during a head-on collision, but can result in broken ribs, severe whiplash, facial cuts, spinal injuries and blindness.

Collapsing Cabin Injuries in a Head-On Collision

During a high-speed head-on collision, the car’s front area may collapse, causing serious injuries to the driver and other front-seat occupants, including traumatic brain injuries, broken necks, back vertebrae fractures and herniated discs.

Why Are Head-On Collisions More Dangerous Than Other Types of Collisions?

As discussed above, head-on collisions involve two vehicles moving in opposite directions. These collisions are particularly dangerous because the force of the impact is doubled by the speed of each vehicle. 

Therefore, even a relatively slow head-on collision, with each car traveling as low as 25 m.p.h., will result in an enormous impact equivalent to the force of hitting a wall at 50 m.p.h. Considering that most people travel slightly above the speed limit, it is more likely that you will experience a 130-150 m.p.h. impact in a head-on collision.
