If you or someone you love was injured in a head-on collision in Cincinnati, you deserve compensation for the damages (“the sum of money the law imposes for a breach of some duty or violation of some right,” according to the Legal Information Institute (LII)) you have incurred—both to your body and your vehicle.

The Other Driver Should Pay You for the Damages You Have Incurred
A head-on collision can be an awful accident to be involved in on the road. The force of the impact is multiplied when the cars involved run directly into each other, each absorbing not only the force of their own speed but of that of the other vehicle as well. Because these collisions are so violent, the property damage and bodily injury is often substantial, resulting in the need for extensive medical care and extended time away from work—both of which can take a devastating financial toll on the victims.
On top of the financial stress of recovering from a head-on collision, the physical and emotional pain and trauma can be overwhelming. Many victims have flashbacks to the accident that result in night terrors and PTSD. Some are afraid to get behind the wheel or into a car at all, making it difficult to carry out basic daily living activities—such as grocery shopping, going to work, or visiting friends and relatives.
The impact of a head-on collision can extend beyond the parties involved, as well, forcing their relatives and loved ones to shoulder the burden of helping them through the recovery process—running errands, cleaning the house, even assisting with basic needs like eating, bathing, and dressing.
At Bressman Law, we firmly believe that the driver who caused the accident—along with their insurance provider—is the one who should pay for the cost of every damage and every inconvenience listed above. They should also compensate you for the physical and emotional trauma you have experienced, as well as the many inconveniences placed upon you by your injury. Your Cincinnati head-on collision lawyer will fight for the compensation you deserve and push back against any attempts by the insurance company to pay you an unfair amount.

We Hold the Responsible Parties Accountable
No matter the cause of your head-on collision in Cincinnati, our job at Bressman Law is to prove that the other driver was in the wrong, was engaged in negligent, careless or reckless behavior, and owes you compensation for your injuries.
We will investigate your accident and hold the other driver responsible for any of the following behaviors and more:
Improper Lane Changes
A head-on collision can result from an improper lane change or an ill-advised passing attempt on a two-lane road. If the driver who hit you was in your lane going the wrong direction because they were trying to pass another vehicle when it was not safe, that is highly negligent behavior for which they should be held accountable.
Another potential cause of your head-on collision could be a driver who turned the wrong way down a one-way street—including, in many cases, drivers who get on an interstate or limited-access highway going the wrong way. Regardless of the reason for their mistake, we will hold them accountable for the injuries and damages they caused.
Drunk driving leads to a number of head-on collisions by reducing a motorist’s vision and judgment. We will look for evidence of intoxication and use it to hold the other driver liable.
If distracted driving, including texting or social media use, was a contributing factor to your head-on collision in Cincinnati, we will collect evidence (such as cell phone records) and use it to hold the other driver accountable.
