Del Rio Head-On Collision Accidents
Del Rio head-on collision accidents can happen for any number of reasons. In the worst cases, one Del Rio driver will cross over into the opposing lane of traffic and crash at speeds in excess of 40 miles per hour into an unsuspecting vehicle. Milder cases might involve unusually strong gusts of wind pushing two cars traveling in opposite directions into each other or a tire blowout causing its vehicle to veer, which leads to a collision.
As our Del Rio head-on collision accidents attorney is often explaining in court, speed is the single-most important factor in determining the severity of damages and injuries these accidents can cause. The causes, however, are another matter entirely. If you or a loved one have been involved in a head-on collision, contact the legal team of Carabin & Shaw today—our lawyers are ready to help you win the compensation you deserve.
Del Rio auto accidents have been on the rise in recent years, despite increased restrictions on trucking, motorcycle, and other commercial transportation services. In many cases, especially those involving lesser-known transportation contractors, these rules are bent in the service of keeping up with industry standards by cutting costs, as well as by forcing employees to make unethical decisions regarding how much time they actually spend on the road, as distinct from the number of hours their log says they were driving.
Although we recognize that the law can only do so much to correct these wrongs, the attorneys at Carabin & Shaw have seen considerable improvement to driving conditions and their corresponding safety statistics each time one of these companies is forced to finally pay for their attempts to dodge their responsibility to other drivers on the roads of Del Rio.
Specifically, by focusing on Del Rio head-on collision accidents, our lawyers are working with local law agencies to reduce the risk you and your loved ones take when traveling the main highways in and out of town. In other words, each time we gain a victory for one of our clients, we help stabilize driving practices not just in Del Rio, but across South Texas.
This is part of the reason we work on a contingency basis, which means the law offices of Carabin & Shaw do not receive payment unless you have earned the full amount of compensation the law allows. By advocating for your rights and showing these transportation companies that you will not be taken advantage of, our attorneys not only secure greater amounts of security for you, but simultaneously discourage other Del Rio transportation companies from continuing to use disingenuous practices.
People who have been in head-on collisions are susceptible to blaming themselves for not reacting sooner, or for causing collateral damage unintentionally. Our lawyers are here to assure you that in all but the most extraordinary Del Rio head-on collision accidents, culpability is usually traced back to one driver. Once that has been proven, the burden of the case rests upon proving what led to their causing the accident, rather than on contributing factors from other drivers. These causes might be:
- exhaustion and fatigue,
- driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs,
- extreme weather conditions,
- improper vehicle maintenance,
- faulty manufacturing,
- poor road conditions,
- a malfunction of road signals,
- and any other number of catalysts.
Regardless of the cause, our team will be there to keep you and your family from suffering more than you already have as a result of this collision. Our attorneys will explain our legal strategy during our initial free consultation and keep you in the loop as we advocate for your rights throughout the legal process.
