Head-on crashes occur when two vehicles moving in opposite directions collide. These accidents can occur when a motorist veers into oncoming traffic, makes an unsafe turn, or goes the wrong way down a one-way street. In the vast majority of cases, head-on collisions are the result of careless, reckless, or negligent driving behaviors.
Some of the most common negligent causes of head-on collisions include:
Whenever a motorist acts negligently and, as a result, causes an accident that leaves others injured or, worse, dead, that motorist can and should be held responsible.
In Wisconsin, you generally only have three years from the date of the accident to bring your car accident claim. If your loved one died as a result of the accident, you only have two years to file a wrongful death claim. This is known as the statute of limitations.
However, it’s always a good idea to act as quickly after the accident as possible, as evidence can be lost over time and proving your claim may become more difficult if months or years have passed.
If you are dealing with catastrophic injuries and all of the hardships they bring—from obtaining adequate medical care to coping with lost wages to facing the emotional consequences of your injuries—the last thing you need to worry about is filing a car accident claim. Yet, such a claim could make all the difference in obtaining fair compensation for your physical, emotional, and financial losses, and working with the right attorney is critical.
