Our Indiana attorneys help those injured in accidents recover
Any type of car accident can cause serious injuries, but head-on collisions can be especially devastating. These accidents are typically caused by negligence. The experienced car accident attorneys at Vaughan & Vaughan can fight to hold negligent parties responsible and help you recover the financial compensation you need and deserve.
In a head-on collision, the force of impact is doubled as two vehicles are both in motion - sometimes at high speed - when they crash into each other. This greater force of impact can cause extreme damage to both vehicles, leaving drivers and passengers seriously injured. Many times, these injuries are fatal.
People who survive a head-on collision can suffer brain injuries or spinal cord injuries. Recovery from these injuries can take months or even years. Some people are left with permanent disability. Medical expenses can quickly become overwhelming. And victims are often left unable to return to work, losing income as a result.
The drivers who cause head-on collisions are often distracted, texting, asleep at the wheel, or under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. But they typically avoid accepting responsibility for the crash. Proving that their negligence was responsible for your accident can be difficult.
Experience that gets results
Insurance companies often dispute claims involving head-on collisions. That's because there's often a lot of money at stake. Their main interest is keeping profits high, which is why they focus on keeping payouts low. They may challenge the extent of your injuries, or even try to blame you for what happened. And they have lawyers looking out for their best interests.
That's why you need an experienced attorney on your side. Our firm has been helping the injured in Greater Lafayette since 1913. We know how to build strong cases to help our clients recover compensation. And we have a strong track record of getting results through negotiated settlements and jury verdicts.
We conduct our own investigation of the crash to find out what really happened. We review police reports, medical records and other documents. We identify and interview witnesses. And if needed, we consult accident reconstruction experts. Our firm focuses on the facts so we can build the strongest case possible.
Our Lafayette lawyers stand up to insurance companies
When insurance companies see that we are serious about your case, they often are willing to enter settlement negotiations. But we are not interested in making a quick settlement that helps the insurance company save money. We are only interested in a settlement that meets your needs.
The injuries suffered in head-on collisions often require lifelong medical care. Any settlement needs to provide compensation for both past and future medical expenses related to your injuries. We may also seek loss of income and other damages, such as pain and suffering, disability and loss of enjoyment of life.
If the insurance company won't agree to a settlement that works for you, we will be ready to fight them in court, where we have won many significant awards for clients. At Vaughan & Vaughan, it's all about the client. Our goal is to get the best possible outcome for you, no matter how long it takes.
If you've been hurt in a head-on collision, contact us as soon as possible. It's important to start building a case before evidence gets lost and memories fade. Call us at 765-742-0056 for a free consultation with an experienced car accident attorney.
