Proving Fault and Liability in a Huntsville Head-On Crash
Head-on collisions are among the most dangerous types of crashes. While they are relatively rare, they can lead to serious injuries when they occur. Since the vehicles are traveling toward one another, the forces amplify on impact. Catastrophic injuries are common when the vehicles are moving at moderate speeds.
Head-on collisions can only occur in a few ways. Modern road design and traffic laws limit the situations where two vehicles meet this way. Some ways head-on crashes can happen include:
- Distracted driving causing a driver to cross over the center line
- Failing to maintain a lane while navigating a curve
- Improper passing
- Driving the wrong way on a one-way street
- Going the wrong way on a divided highway
- Turn lane collisions
Our team investigates these collisions to gather evidence and document fault and liability. We can prove the at-fault driver acted negligently, causing the crash. In complex cases, we can call accident reconstruction experts to help us understand what happened. They often testify in court on our client’s behalf.
Recovering Damages in Your Huntsville Accident Claim or Lawsuit
Our attorneys seek fair compensation for our clients by demanding a payout from the insurer or filing a lawsuit and asking the court to award damages. The potential value of these cases depends on the costs and losses the claimant experienced because of the crash. When we represent you, we may be able to recover damages that include:
- Medical expenses related to your accident injuries
- Future or ongoing care and support costs
- Income losses from missed work
- Reduced earning capacity if there are lasting injuries
- Car repair or replacement
- Related expenses
- Pain and suffering
Alabama’s Wrongful Death Act, Ala. Code § 6-5-410, limits the recoverable damages when a crash victim dies from their injuries. Under this statute, only punitive damages are available. Only juries can award these damages after a trial in civil court. We must show that the at-fault driver acted intentionally or with considerable malice to recover punitive damages.
Let a Huntsville Head-On Collisions Attorney Manage Your Case
Our attorneys can often settle collision claims without suing or taking the case to trial. Once we have strong support for our client’s case, we contact the liable party and their insurer and demand fair compensation. This leads to settlement negotiations, and our attorneys use proven techniques to work out an agreement.
However, we will not settle for less than our client deserves. If we believe we need to sue based on the facts of your case, we will. Our trial attorneys will not back down just because the insurance company expects us to.
Deadline for Pursuing Your Huntsville Head-On Collision Case
Under Ala. Code § 6-2-38, there is a two-year deadline for suing in a car accident case. Some circumstances could reduce this to even less time. While this deadline only applies to filing a civil lawsuit, it could also make it more difficult to negotiate a fair insurance payout if you miss it. Contact us about your case as early as possible to protect your rights.
