Head-On Collisions


Helping Injured Victims of Serious Auto Accidents

Some of the most serious and life-threatening injuries are those resulting from head-on collisions. These types of auto accidents are extremely dangerous due to the high impact and velocity often associated with the crash. Most common are injuries to the head and brain. When serious enough, head and brain injuries cause permanent damage, leading to further rehabilitation and post-operative care needs. Essentially, the victim’s life has been changed forever.

If you or a loved one was injured in a St. Louis area head-on collision, it is highly recommended that you obtain legal counsel from an experienced personal injury law firm. At Devereaux, Stokes, Fernandez & Leonard, we have a record of success in even the most challenging auto accident cases.

Causes of Head-On Collisions

No matter how complex your head-on collision case is, whether it involves multiple defendants or requires aggressive negotiation or trial representation, our attorneys have the skills and experience to effectively manage your case. We provide each client with individualized and catered personal injury representation.

There are many causes for head-on collisions but there are some more frequent than others. Common causes of head-on collisions involve:

  • Excessive speeding
  • Going wrong way
  • Crossing of medians
  • Running red lights
  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Driving under the influence of drugs
  • Falling asleep at the wheel

It is not uncommon for injuries sustained in a head-on collision to be permanent. Permanent brain or spinal cord injuries require a lifetime of rehabilitation, occupational therapy and after-care needs. The cost for this type of ongoing medical care is extremely high, and we will do everything we can to make sure that you are compensated fully in order to cover these costs and for any additional pain and suffering.
