Our experienced South Carolina car accident attorneys are prepared to help you determine cause and fault after an accident, and then fight to get you the compensation you deserve.

What are common injuries from head-on auto wrecks?


Head-on car crashes can lead to serious, life-altering injuries. Our attorneys have helped countless personal injury clients who sustained injuries such as:

Because of the severity of the crash – two cars hitting each other at 50mph will exert energy and absorb energy from one another, so it is likely to cause only a little less damage than if you had hit a brick wall at the same speed – head-on auto accident victims may need extensive medical treatments for a long period. Many find themselves unable to work, adding extra pressure on families who may have already been struggling to pay their mortgages and household bills. No matter the type or severity of the injury you or a loved one has suffered, our attorneys have the skill and experience to help you file a claim and get the appropriate damage reward. Let us help you protect your family and your children’s future after an act of negligence threatened to change everything.

How much is my South Carolina head-on accident worth?

When evaluating the compensation to which you may be entitled, we consider the following:

  • Liability. Establishing who was at fault in the accident is crucial. If the other party is clearly liable for the head-on collision, it strengthens your claim.
  • The severity of injuries. The extent and impact of your injuries play a significant role in assessing the value of your claim. Factors such as the type of injuries, medical expenses, required treatments, and long-term effects on your health and quality of life are all taken into consideration.
  • Medical expenses. The costs associated with medical treatment, including emergency care, surgeries, hospitalization, rehabilitation, medications, therapy, and ongoing medical care, are considered when determining the value of your claim.
  • Lost wages and earning capacity. If the accident resulted in missed work or has affected your ability to work in the future, your potential loss of income and reduced earning capacity may be factored into the claim.
  • Pain and suffering. Compensation may be awarded for the physical pain, emotional distress, mental anguish, and loss of enjoyment of life caused by the accident and resulting injuries.
  • Property damage. The value of any damage to your vehicle or other property can be included in your claim.
  • Comparative negligence. South Carolina follows a comparative negligence system, which means that if you were partially at fault for the accident, your compensation may be reduced based on your percentage of fault. Our attorneys will fight to minimize fault as much as possible.
