Recover Immediate and Long-Term Accident Expenses
A head-on collision is dangerous and can even be deadly. It can result in serious injuries for you and for any passengers in your car. The injuries you sustain can lead to significant medical bills and ongoing financial expenses and losses.
Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) data cites as many as 56% of accidents involving passenger vehicles as head-on collisions. In fact, head-on collisions account for more vehicle accidents than side-impact, rear-impact, and rollover collisions combined.
If you or someone you love suffered injuries in a head-on collision caused by another driver, you could have the basis of a personal injury lawsuit or insurance claim for financial compensation. You do not have to fight for this compensation alone. Find out how you can assign liability and collect compensation by contacting the case review team at the Fitch Law Firm by calling (614) 545-3930 today.
Calculate the Cost of Your Injuries
Any car accident you are involved in can lead to substantial injuries that require lengthy medical care and treatments. You should not have to pay these expenses or to forego necessary medical treatments. A head-on collision can result in one or more of the following injuries:
- Traumatic head injury
- Spinal cord injuries
- Broken bones
- Internal bleeding
If you suffer injuries in a car accident, seek immediate medical care. The health care team who treats your injuries will keep a detailed record of the cause of your injuries and the cost of treating them. These records can help us assign financial liability and value the portion of your claim that covers current and future medical treatment.
Calculate Non-Medical Expenses and Losses
If you or someone you love is involved in a head-on collision, the medical care you receive will form only one portion of your claim for compensation. Other financial expenses and losses we can help you recover include:
- Current lost wages
- Future lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
Each vehicle accident claim will have its own specific costs, which means your potential financial recovery is specific to you. Our team will review your accident and assess the value of your claim prior to beginning any settlement negotiations. Our goal is to ensure you are not left paying accident expenses out of your own pocket because your insurer undervalued your claim.

Do Not Run Out of Time To Seek Compensation
Hiring a lawyer to represent you in a personal injury claim for financial compensation after an accident has a number of advantages. One of the most important roles we can play is to ensure you do not inadvertently run out of time to file your claim for compensation.
According to Ohio Revised Code § 2305.10, you generally have two years from the date the accident occurs to file a personal injury lawsuit. Because the potential lawsuit allows you to seek compensation for the full range of your injury-related expenses, adhering to the timeline is important.
If you miss the timeline, you will be unable to collect compensation via a lawsuit at all. Find out everything we do to prove and value your claim, including making sure it complies with Ohio’s personal injury filing deadline.
