Car accidents are terrible, but head-on collisions are some of the most devastating to drivers and passengers, especially on high-speed roads like Highway 74. The forces are significantly increased if both vehicles are traveling at high speeds when they run into each other.

To win a fair settlement, you may need an experienced Riverside head-on collision lawyer from Dickson Kohan & Bablove, LLP. We have the experience, knowledge, and resources necessary to win the compensation you deserve.
Head-On Collision Causes
A head-on collision can be caused mostly by the same things as any other car accident. We’ll investigate everything involved with the accident—from the location to the vehicles to the other driver’s history. We have to find the cause to find the culprit.
Common causes of head-on collisions in Riverside include the following:
- Drunk, drugged, drowsy, and distracted drivers

- Bad road conditions that should have been corrected
- Construction zone mistakes

Compensation for Your Crash
The whole point of this is to get justice and compensation from the other driver or whoever may be to blame. We’ll make sure every damage you’ve suffered is accounted for. Including every economic and non-economic damage in your claim is a crucial part of maximizing your compensation.

Insurance and Comparative Negligence
Dealing with anyone’s insurer is a huge hassle. Insurance adjusters love to use anything they can against you to minimize the damage to their precious profits. You have to be careful of what you say and how you say it when commenting on the accident because they will twist it against you.
Their goal is to push the blame on you and use California’s comparative negligence laws to reduce your compensation. This rule allows you to file a personal injury suit even if you were partially at fault, but your compensation is reduced by the same percentage as the fault you hold. If, for instance, you win $100,000 but are 10 percent at-fault, then you’ll only get $90,000.
