Head-On Car Accident Injuries

It would be nice if seeing a car driving straight for you meant you had time to get out of the way. Unfortunately, this is not always possible. People who get involved in head-on collisions often suffer devastating injuries, including:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Head trauma
  • Broken bones
  • Chest injuries
  • Whiplash/neck injuries
  • Abdominal injuries

The medical costs required to address these head-on car accident injuries can quickly spiral out of control. Sometimes these accidents can prove deadly, leaving loved ones grieving and without income. If you or a loved one has been injured or died in a head-on collision, the effects on your life can be immeasurable. Our Ohio attorneys at Lamkin, Van Eman, Trimble & Dougherty can't turn back time to avoid the crash, but we can help you recover fair and full compensation to help you continue on after a serious accident, and regain some control over your life.

Airbags Can Hurt, Too

Airbags are supposed to protect you from injury in a car accident. But sometimes air bags can themselves cause injury. Some common air bag-related injuries can include:

  • Burns
  • Broken bones/broken nose
  • Bruises

Faulty air bags can also deploy too forcefully, blowing shrapnel into the cabin of a car and causing severe injuries. There have been separate product liability lawsuits in these cases.
