Liability In Goshen Head-On Car Accidents

Car accidents remain one of the leading causes of serious injury and death in the United States. According to the CDC, “Reducing motor vehicle crash deaths was one of the great public health achievements of the 20th century for the US. However, more than 32,000 people are killed and 2 million are injured each year from motor vehicle crashes.” There are many factors that could contribute to a car accident.

  • Drunk driving
  • Driver fatigue
  • Inclement weather
  • Tire defects

When a driver is negligent and causes a head-on collision, they can be held at fault through a civil claim. The family of any victim that died in a car accident may have legal recourse through a wrongful death claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. A wrongful death attorney can examine all of the facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
