Help After a Head-On Collision in Maryland Puts Your Future at Risk
Protecting the rights of car accident victims in Baltimore, Columbia and beyond
Head-on collisions are among the rarest, but they are also among the most deadly: According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, almost 10% of head-on collisions are fatal, and of the 123,000 of them that occurred in 2012 (the most recent data available), more than 50% led to injury. With a risk that high, it is imperative that you seek legal counsel after you have been involved in a head-on collision.
Plaxen & Adler, P.A., has more than 30 years of experience protecting the rights of auto accident victims in Baltimore, Columbia and throughout Maryland. From our offices in Columbia, Baltimore and the surrounding areas, we have met with thousands of clients who were in pain and under duress just like you. We have successfully secured millions of dollars in jury verdicts and in negotiations for car accident victims, and we are prepared to do the same for you.
Why head-on collisions are so deadly
To understand why head-on collisions are so deadly, we can look to the laws of physics: An object in motion tends to stay in motion unless that motion is arrested in some way. Thus, when a car rear-ends another car, only the moving object has the momentum to go forward. Most likely, the car that is hit will be forced forward by the car behind it. But when two cars are traveling toward each other and they collide, both cars are being propelled by their own forward momentum. To put it simply: there is twice the amount of energy involved in head-on collisions, which makes them, in essence, twice as dangerous.
Head-on accidents lead to serious injuries
While any kind of car accident might lead you to suffer serious injuries, the risk is greater when you hit another car head-on. At Plaxen & Adler, P.A., we have successfully represented car accident victims who have sustained serious, long-term and sometimes permanent injuries, including:
