    A head-on collision can be devastating, causing significant injuries to everyone involved and property damage to your car. If you were injured in a front-end crash, you may be entitled to financial compensation. However, you’ll need an experienced car accident attorney who knows the law well enough to get you what you deserve.

    Attorney David I. Fuchs is a seasoned Fort Lauderdale head-on car accident lawyer with finely-honed negotiation skills and expansive breadth of Florida car accident law knowledge that has been earning him success in the courtroom since 1988. To schedule your free consultation and get started on your case, reach out to our office today.

    Who’s At Fault in a Head-On Crash?

    The driver who caused the accident is at fault, and in some cases more than one driver may be partially to blame. Even if you share part of the fault, you can still collect compensation for your damages.

    Surprisingly, bad weather conditions are a big contributor to front-end car wrecks, if for no other reason than the drivers’ reduced visibility. Taking the elements into account will help you determine who was at fault in the crash a little bit better and serve as a warning for the future.

    Recovering Compensation in Florida Head-On Collisions

    Since Florida is a ‘no-fault’ insurance state, your car insurance policy will cover any damages you sustain in a minor car accident, regardless of whether you were at fault or not. State law requires drivers to hold a policy that provides a minimum of $10,000 in personal injury protection (PIP) insurance, which will cover some of your medical bills and lost wages.

    What’s more, state laws are unique in that the driver who was less at fault may bring a diminished value claim against the at-fault party’s insurance provider. This is good to keep in mind if you are only thinking of damages in terms of the physical damages you sustained in a head-on accident.

    Of course, there are other damages you can seek compensation for through a personal injury claim, such as pain and suffering, vehicle repair, transportation costs to and from your doctor’s office, and future losses (e.g. impending surgeries, earning capacity, or long-term care and treatment, etc.). However, only an experienced head-on car crash attorney in Fort Lauderdale can help you determine the financial impact and increase the value of your claim.

    Front-End Crash Statistics Statewide

    The state of Florida witnessed over a half a million car crashes in 2018, with 161,110 injuries resulting from those crashes. Most of the time, these accidents were caused by pure human error, whether it was a drunk driver, too quick of a turn, an incorrect estimation of when to pass another car, or simply driving under the influence.

    What’s more, many of these crashes resulted from head-on collisions or front end wrecks, the injuries from which usually look like whiplash, traumatic brain injuriesspinal cord injuries, cuts, bruises, broken bonesburns, or in the most serious of cases, death. Oftentimes, these injuries are made more serious by a faulty airbag or the driver not wearing a seatbelt.

    Me. Fuchs was my car accident attorney and was very responsive from the first call. I had medical care the next day and the whole process was smooth. They handled everything with the insurance companies and coordinated all of the necessary medical information. It was a long process and in the end the settlement I received was much higher than anticipated I am more than happy and grateful for the outcome.
