Head-on collisions are among the most dangerous type of car accident. The force of two vehicles colliding at highway speed often causes massive injuries, if not death. Because of the complex crash scene, it is also difficult for investigators to determine what happened.
The Law Office of John W. Redmann, LLC serving Greater New Orleans, has handled many head-on and front-impact accidents. Our New Orleans head-on collision accident lawyers are committed to helping clients rebuild their lives, representing crash victims recovering from severe injuries and families coping with the loss of a loved one.
A head-on collision typically means that one vehicle veered over the center line, crossed the median or left the road. Attorney John W. Redmann, who has more than 20 years of experience, oversees a thorough investigation into the events that preceded such a crash. Our New Orleans car accident lawyers have the means to hire a motor vehicle accident reconstructionist and other experts who can help show why that driver came into our client’s lane.
Once we understand what caused the crash, we work to identify all liable parties and all sources of insurance coverage. For example, a trucking company, a manufacturer or an establishment that served alcohol might be named in the lawsuit.
Head-on impact accidents account for just 2 percent of all traffic crashes, but 10 percent of all traffic deaths. People who do survive typically suffer permanent or catastrophic injuries such as brain trauma, facial injuries, neck and back injuries, or crushed legs. Our New Orleans personal injury lawyers make a strong case for full compensation by carefully detailing the medical needs, the economic impact, and the personal suffering and disability. We are always prepared to try the case if the defense lawyers and insurance companies will not offer a fair settlement.
Our lawyers are familiar with the roads where head-on crashes commonly occur, from two-lane highways in Jefferson Parish and surrounding parishes to dangerous stretches of Interstate 12 where numerous cars have jumped the median into opposite lanes of traffic despite preventive barriers.
