New Orleans Car Accident Attorney for Head-On Collisions

Head-on car accidents are often some of the most severe crashes, which can cause serious and life-threatening injuries.

These collisions occur when the front ends of two cars collide. They are regularly the result of one car crossing a median or line into oncoming traffic or making a wrong turn down a one-way street. That may be because the driver of the vehicle is confused, momentarily distracted or intoxicated.

At Bloom Legal, we help people injured in head-on and other car accidents get compensation for their injuries. We understand the stress and uncertainty that often comes with being injured in a crash. That is why we work tirelessly to get people the full compensation available under the law.

Common Injuries in Head-On Motor Vehicle Crashes

Head-on crashes can cause a wide range of injuries to both drivers and passengers because of the sheer force at which the vehicles collide. Common injuries include:

Anyone who is injured in a head-on or other accident in Louisiana has the right to seek compensation from those responsible, which includes money for medical bills, missed wages and any reduction in your earning capacity as a result of the injuries.

In the tragic situation in which a person dies in a head-on collision, his or her loved ones can seek similar compensation for wrongful death with the help of our auto accident attorneys.

Head-On Accident Causes and Liability

Head-on collisions can also have a number of different causes. Some of the factors that often play a role in these accidents include:

  • Driving under the influenceDrugs and alcohol do not mix with driving. Impairment slows reaction time, allows drivers to be easily distracted and puts everyone on the road at risk.
  • Distracted drivingWhether a driver is texting behind the wheel or fumbling with the radio dial, distraction is a common cause of accidents.
  • Fatigued driving: Tired driving can dull reaction time and lead to mistakes that have serious consequences.
  • Confusion: Driving the wrong way on a road is an easy way to cause a crash.
  • Inclement weather: Weather like rain and ice can make it hard to see traffic and road signs and difficult to control vehicles.

Drivers in Louisiana are required to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner, including by being aware at all times and refraining from driving while intoxicated or fatigued. A driver that does not meet this standard is considered negligent and likely to be legally responsible for any accidents that happen as a result.

    "I contacted Bloom Legal out of the blue with a strange question for a fiction series I’m writing that takes place in New Orleans. Being from Maryland I was in the dark and needed assistance and they jumped at the chance to help me (they were the only law firm that responded to my e-mail). His team worked quickly and carefully to find the information I needed. Because of the help they provided it changed a large aspect of my novel and for that I am very grateful."
