Determining Fault in a Greenville Head-On Collision

Whoever caused or contributed to the collision can be held financially responsible for any losses arising from the accident. Usually, a head-on crash happens when a motorist is driving on the wrong side of the road. In many head-on collision cases, the “wrong-way” driver is typically at fault. However, other entities can also be found liable if their actions contributed to the collision.

Per the American Bar Association, another party can be held liable for your damages if we can prove all four of these factors:

  • Duty of care. Our team must demonstrate that another party owed you a duty of care. All drivers have a legal responsibility to operate their vehicles with caution and obey the rules of the road.
  • Breach of duty. Your legal team needs to prove that another motorist violated their duty of care by acting recklessly or carelessly. For example, let’s say that you were driving on a two-lane rural road. Maybe another motorist coming in the opposite direction veered into your lane because they were texting. This action would constitute breaching their duty of care since they put you in danger.
  • We must prove that the negligent actions of another party caused the accident that hurt you. Your lawyer can accomplish this by reviewing the police report and interviewing witnesses. If possible, they might be able to use traffic surveillance footage to determine how your accident occurred.
  • Measurable damages. You need to have monetary losses stemming from the collision that harmed you. If you got hurt or lost a loved one in a head-on collision, you likely have measurable damages. This could come in the form of medical bills and lost wages.

A Greenville head-on collision lawyer at the Hammack Law Firm can help you bring the at-fault party to justice. Feel free to call us today at (864) 326-3333 for a no-cost case evaluation.

Your Lawyer Can Investigate the Cause of Your Collision

To pursue the cost of your collision-related expenses, your legal team will need to determine how your accident occurred. We mentioned earlier that your lawyer can review the police report, traffic surveillance footage, and photos of the accident scene to come to this determination.

Here are a few elements that could have caused or contributed to your head-on collision:

  • Driver error. Lack of experience in a young driver and cognitive issues in an older driver can make a person uncertain about which lane they should be in.
  • Poor road design. A “suicide lane,” lack of a center median, and reversible lanes can put a driver in the wrong direction of traffic.
  • Inclement weather conditions. A driver could lose control of their vehicle if they do not adjust their driving speed to accommodate poor weather conditions, such as rain or snow.
  • Driving while intoxicated. Drunk drivers can end up in the wrong lane, driving right into oncoming cars.
  • Distracted driving. Distractions, like talking on a mobile phone, texting, or changing the radio station, can take a driver’s focus off the road.
  • Road construction. When a road is undergoing construction, there should be adequate signage that regulates the flow of traffic. No medians, faded lane dividers, and suddenly ending lanes can result in a head-on collision.
  • Driving while fatigued. When a driver falls asleep at the wheel and drifts into oncoming traffic, everyone’s life is at risk.
  • Vehicular malfunction. If a vehicle is not roadworthy, it can malfunction and harm others. Some defective vehicular components can include the steering system, brakes, or tires.

If you do not see the cause of your accident listed above, do not worry. Our team can investigate the cause of your collision and determine who should be held responsible for your losses. You might be able to hold multiple parties accountable for your damages, including a government municipality or vehicle manufacturer.

To learn more about your legal options, we encourage you to call the Hammack Law Firm today.

I am so thankful for Paul and his team! My wife was hit by a car over a year ago while standing watching our kids at a field day. Paul and I discussed the situation and it was clear because of the significant liability on the part of the person driving the car that we needed to pursue an insurance settlement. We made one phone call to the hospital and insurance company and knew we were in over our heads. After that I knew that HLFs expertise was necessary to navigate these waters. They did a terrific job and exactly 7 months after the incident, all was settled. We are extremely satisfied and thankful for their work.
Did I mention Lynn? AMAZING. So refreshing to watch pros navigate what could be a stressful and drawn-out process with elegance and efficiency.

Well…I guess in my eyes a Testimony is more valuable than a Review! My wife has been involved with her case with the help of Hammack Law Firm. I was not involved nowhere near as much as my wife but yet I witnessed the struggle. Paul doesn’t make promises and guarantees that he can’t keep but the one promise and the one guarantee is that he will do everything he can to help you and be there for you! The measures of this man is immeasurable because he’s a man of Faith. My wife and I witnessed that first hand. Paul’s staff shows what his expectations are to be which makes them great at what they do! Now some of you may not post such praises and positive vibes but one can only speak from one’s experience and ours was Highly Favored! Stay Focused Paul you and your staff are continued to be destined for Greatness!

I went to 3 other law firms first and they all told me my case was not worth pursuing. I had a serious incident and went through a lot so I decided to try 1 more. They took my case and Paul got me a lot more than I expected! Everyone there is so helpful & friendly. Traci was also amazing! Thank you soooo much for everything.

When I had my car accident, my life suddenly and radically changed. Instead of running my company and traveling all over the country to see clients, I found myself in bed for weeks, unable to move, facing multiple surgeries and procedures, and fully at the mercy of family and caretakers. Paul took our case and helped us through the emotional and financial strain of the situation. He helped us get the full insurance settlement quickly and efficiently, which helped get our life back on track.
