Head-On Collisions

Advocating for Tennessee Victims of Catastrophic Head-On Car Crashes

A trusted source for personal injury counsel throughout Nashville, Knoxville and Hendersonville

Head-on collisions are among the most serious – and most deadly – car wrecks. They are also some of the scariest, which is why they are so often used in airbag commercials, anti-texting PSAs and action movies. The chances of you sustaining a serious injury in a head-on collision are high, and you want an experienced Nashville car crash lawyer to help you start your road to recovery. The Rocky McElhaney Law Firm is exclusively dedicated to protecting the rights and futures of injury victims in Nashville, Knoxville, Hendersonville and throughout Tennessee. When you are suffering, we are by your side and fighting for your rights.

Consequences of a head-on car collision

The front of most modern vehicles are designed to crumple on impact, absorbing some energy of the crash and keeping it from transferring to the driver and passengers. But in a head-on collision, the crumple zone may not be enough to protect you – especially if you aren’t wearing your seat belt, or if your airbag doesn’t deploy (or deploys with too much strength). Head-on car crashes can cause serious injuries, including:

  • Broken facial bones, leading to necessary reconstructive surgeries, either from the force of the airbag or from a person ejecting out of the car through the front window
  • Lacerations on the face or body
  • Traumatic brain injuries from the force of impact on the skull, potentially leading to a concussion, a comatose state or permanent brain damage
  • Spinal cord injuries or severing, leading to partial or total paralysis
  • Vision and hearing loss
  • Broken arms and legs
  • Crush injuries of the extremities which necessitates amputations
  • The death of the driver and/or passenger(s)

Many of these injuries could require weeks, months or even years of care, and some people in head-on collisions need medical attention for the rest of their lives.
