When you meet with our dedicated car accident lawyers, we will review what happened to cause your head-on collision, and we will begin work immediately to determine who should be held responsible.

The time, resources and attention to detail that we put into our clients’ cases makes a difference.
Head-on collisions frequently result in life-altering and fatal injuries.

People may suffer injuries from getting crushed, or they may get thrown from the vehicle. Some of the most common injuries that victims suffer are:
A person who is involved in a head-on collision may need significant medical treatment, including surgery, medication, assistive devices and ongoing rehabilitation. The victim may also be unable to return to work for an extended period – if at all – and suffer a significant loss of income.
If another driver caused a head-on collision that left you with severe injuries, you have the right to pursue full and fair compensation. Lichtenstein Law Group PLC will aggressively pursue compensation for you that may include:
If your family member died in a head-on collision, we can also help you to file a wrongful death claim that seeks a different set of damages, including compensation for funeral and burial expenses and the loss of your loved one’s services and financial support.

However, a wrongful death claim can help you to achieve a sense of justice and provide your family with financial security as you move forward.
