Helping People Injured In
Charleston SC Car Accidents

There are many types of car accidents, but head-on collisions are one of the most dangerous. When two cars hit head on, drivers and passengers can get thrown into the wind shield causing severe head injuries with lasting effects.

If you are injured in a head-on collision due to another driver’s reckless or negligent behavior, you deserve compensation. The Hopkins Law Firm is a team from Charleston, South Carolina with years of experience dealing with car accident and personal injury law. Read on to find out how they can help protect your rights.

What is a Head-on Collision?

Also called a frontal crash or front impact accident, head-on collisions occur when two vehicles coming from opposite directions hit each other impacting their front ends. The severity of damage and injuries will depend on how fast each of the cars were going.

How do Head-on Collisions Happen?

Head-on collisions can happen under a variety of circumstances. Here are some possibilities.

  • Head-on collisions can occur when a driver enters onto a freeway the wrong way. If this happens, accidents can be quite serious considering drivers on the freeway tend to travel at accelerated speeds.
  • Drivers may be going down a street that doesn’t have a clear two-way marker or they may swerve out of their lane for whatever reason causing a head on collision.

Head on collisions often happen when drivers are distracted, fatigued, or intoxicated. They could also be caused by bad weather and low visibility that makes drivers unable to see lane dividers and ‘do not enter ‘signs.

In some cases, drivers may be speeding, ignoring signs and signals, or engaging in other illegal behavior when driving so they end up causing an accident.

Common Head on Collision Injuries

The most common type of head-on collision injury is head or brain injury. The impact of the accident often causes drivers and passengers to fly forward into rear view mirrors or windshields headfirst causing serious damage.

Head injuries are often serious in nature and include the following.

Concussions

Concussions are usually low on the scale of severity but in some instances they can be serious.

A mild concussion will produce symptoms that last 15 minutes or less. A more serious concussion will have longer lasting symptoms. A severe concussion will cause the patient to lose consciousness and may lead to ongoing issues like sleep problems, difficulty concentrating, mental fogginess, sensitivity to light and noise, and more.

Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI’s)

TBI’s are generally more serious than concussions. A mild TBI can produce symptoms like headache, vomiting and nausea, fatigue, dizziness, and problems with speech.

A moderate to severe TBI will result in symptoms like convulsions and seizures, weakness and numbness, a lack of coordination, inability to awaken from sleep, persistent headaches, loss of consciousness, and more.

The symptoms of a severe TBI or concussion can be temporary, or they can cause permanent damage.

And head and brain injuries aren’t the only types of injuries that can occur in a head on collision. Here are some other types of injuries victims may incur.

  • Bruises and cuts
  • Organ damage
  • Broken bones
  • Amputation
  • Spinal cord injuries

The Importance of Seeking Medical Help Immediately

Not everyone asks for medical care after an accident. They may think their injuries aren’t that serious and they may pass when asked if they need to be taken to the doctor.

But if you are involved in an accident, it is always best to see a medical professional ASAP.

When you are injured in an accident, you may feel okay at first. But as days go by your symptoms may begin to worsen

If you seek medical care later after the accident, it will be hard to prove that the accident caused your injuries. At fault parties will argue that your injuries were not related to the accident and it will be difficult to prove them wrong.

If you see a doctor right away, they will create a medical record that connects your injuries to the accident making for indisputable evidence.

Head injuries are notorious for getting worse over time, so if you are involved in a head on collision, do not hesitate to visit the doctor.
