Head-on Auto AccidentAs an experienced, talented personal injury attorney, Larry S. Buckley has the resources, skill, and wherewithal to handle even the most complex auto accident cases.

If you or a member of your family has been injured in a head-on auto accident caused by another driver’s negligence, or if you have lost a member of your family in such an accident, we can fight for your right to obtain the full measure of compensation to which you are entitled.

About Head-on Auto Accidents

  • The influence of alcohol or drugs, prescription or otherwise
  • A driver attempting the unsafe or illegal passing of another vehicle
  • A driver accidentally turning the wrong direction onto a one-way street
  • Blatantly reckless driving

  • Neck and spine injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Whiplash
  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations
  • Loss of limb
  • Wrongful death

Every auto accident case is different, and there is no way of knowing the damages to which you may be entitled without having your case thoroughly reviewed. However, common damages awarded in head-on auto accident claims include compensation for:

  • Hospital and doctor’s bills
  • Medication and home-care expenses
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Lost wages
