Hialeah Head on Collision

While all types of traffic accidents in Hialeah and Florida can be traumatic, head-on car collisions tend to be among the more serious traffic accidents. In these types of accidents, two cars meet bumper to bumper, often because one vehicle has left to their lane and entered the oncoming lane. Because cars are traveling at full force, the impact created by the collision is significant enough to cause life-threatening injuries, permanent injuries, and even fatalities.

If you have been seriously injured in this type of car accident or have lost a loved one in this type of collision, Florida law does protect you and may permit you to seek compensation.

1) Get quality medical care. After s head-on car or truck accident in Hialeah, you may be rushed to an emergency room. Even if you seem to have no injuries, though, you will want to visit a walk-in clinic or your doctor as soon as possible after your collision and you will want to keep track of your symptoms carefully. Chronic pain, back injuries, soft tissue injuries, and brain injuries can all be serious problems and may not present symptoms right away.

2) Practice good self-care. Being in a serious car accident isn't only dangerous to your health. It can also lead to emotional upset and trauma. Immediately following an accident, take the time you need to care for yourself and your family. This may involve taking some time away from work, getting medical checkups, or visiting a support group or therapist in order to deal with the trauma of the incident. Get plenty of rest and follow your doctor's directions in terms of diet, exercise, and rest so that you have the best chance is possible of healing from any injuries.

3) Get legal advice. You may assume that your insurance and your doctor will take care of all the details following a car accident, but this is not always the case.

You do not want to be left paying for most or all of these expenses out-of-pocket. To avoid this problem, consult with a personal injury attorney.
