When Can I Make A Head-On Collision Compensation Claim?
Head-on collisions are an uncommon yet very dangerous type of accident occurring when two vehicles travelling in opposite directions crash into one another. When head-on collisions happen, there is nearly always a liable party, as one of the vehicles involved in the crash will have driven into the path of oncoming traffic. If a vehicle has driven into you against the flow of traffic, it is important that you contact a road traffic accident solicitor quickly. There is usually a three-year time limit after the incident has occurred during which you can make a compensation claim.
Are Head-On Collision Claims Always Possible?
While head-on collision claims usually have a guilty party – the driver who was going the wrong way – sometimes it can be difficult to determine where the fault lies. The speed and force of a head-on crash usually sends the vehicles back in different directions, making it difficult to discern the original positions at impact. When this happens, it will require the expertise and diligence of a personal injury solicitor to uncover the evidence necessary to prove liability of the other driver. Important evidence may include police reports, CCTV footage and the testimonies of any witnesses.
How Much Head-On Collision Compensation Will I Receive?
The amount of compensation paid out – not just in head-on collision claims, but in all road traffic accident cases – is dependent on the circumstances and evidence of that particular instance. However, head-on collision claims are usually the most valuable road traffic accident claims for two reasons. Firstly, they are always extremely dangerous. Two vehicles approaching each other, even at a relatively low speed such as 30mph, will crash at the equivalent of twice that speed. More people are seriously injured or even killed due to head-on collisions than any other type of car accident. Secondly, legal liability is more likely to be provable during a compensation claim, due to one driver going the wrong way. However, this is not guaranteed. Like all road traffic accident claims, sometimes it is difficult to determine which driver has legal responsibility for a collision. When this happens, a compensation claim may be settled as split liability, entitling each driver to a percentage of the actual value of their claim.
