Kitchener Head-On Collision Lawyer


If you were injured in a head-on collision caused by another driver’s negligence, in addition to physical trauma, you may be facing significant financial hardship. These types of car accidents can lead to long-term hospitalizations, extended periods of physical rehabilitation, or in certain cases, chronic injuries, and permanent immobilization. In addition to the physical challenges resulting from a head-on collision, victims can experience mental anguish and lasting emotional trauma.

If you’ve been seriously injured in a head-on collision, a Kitchener car accident lawyer may be able to help you recover financial damages incurred as a result of your collision.

Understanding Head-On Collisions in Kitchener

In the Kitchener area, head-on collisions occur at a frighteningly high rate. Recently, CTV News reported two head-on collisions on the same road, just one hour apart . According to a recent collision report released by the Region of Waterloo’s Transportation and Environmental Services Department, the area saw a 57% increase in head-on collisions causing injuries or deaths.

Head-on collisions are among the deadliest types of car accidents imaginable. Due to the blunt force impact of one vehicle colliding directly with another at a high speed, the resulting damage can be devastating.

Depending on a number of factors, injuries resulting from a head-on collision can vary from mild to severe. While some fortunate accident survivors may walk away from their collision with just mild bruising, others may sustain permanent, catastrophic injuries. These injuries may diminish the quality of a victim’s life, cause significant emotional distress, and lead to an inability to live or work independently.

Steps to Take After a Head-On Collision

If you’ve been involved in a head-on collision, taking some immediate actions may be able to help you avoid unnecessary medical complications, and could assist you in the future if you choose to pursue legal action against the at-fault driver. These actions include:

  • Recording the details of the accident while they’re fresh in your mind
  • Requesting contact information from eyewitnesses to the accident
  • Filing a police report
  • Seeking immediate medical attention

In the shocking aftermath of a car accident, you may not experience the full severity of any injuries you’ve sustained, as the effects of your body’s adrenaline may diminish or delay any resulting pains. Seeking emergency medical attention, even if you don’t immediately feel as though you’ve sustained an injury, could help you avoid serious medical complications in the future. Doing so could also provide you with a thorough medical assessment so you can begin your path to recovery as soon as you’re physically able to do so.

Recoverable Damages from a Head-On Collision

Head-on collisions can result in serious injuries. Properly treating these injuries may result in substantial monetary losses. Car accident victims can incur serious financial burdens, simply because another driver behaved negligently on the road.

If you have sustained serious injuries as the result of a head-on collision, a Kitchener car accident lawyer may be able to help you recover financial compensation for the following damages:

  • Medical expenses
  • Permanent disfigurement or disability
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages from missed work
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Loss of consortium
