Westbury Head-On Collision Accident Lawyer
The double-impact effect of two cars colliding head-on is known to cause devastating injuries.
If the other driver was responsible for your head-on collision, they, not you, should pay for your damages. This includes all economic and noneconomic losses you have suffered, including future medical bills, lost wages, reduced earning capacity, and pain and suffering.
When you choose Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. to represent you, a Westbury head-on collisions lawyer from our firm will fight to make the insurance company of the responsible party pay for all the harm you’ve suffered as a result of your injuries.
We are familiar with the tactics insurance companies use to pay accident victims less than they deserve. We will go toe-to-toe with them and see to it that they compensate you fairly.

Our confidence in our work allows us to operate on a contingency-fee-basis, where you do not pay us in advance. Our payment only comes at the end of your case as a percentage of your settlement offer or court award.
The Danger of Head-On Collisions
A head-on collision is one of the scariest things that happen on the road. If you are traveling 50 miles per hour in one direction and hit a vehicle coming from the other direction at the same speed, the effect is like hitting a solid wall at 100 miles per hour, a result of a phenomenon called “double impact.”
The double-impact effect gives head-on collisions their destructive capacity. We have worked with clients who suffered severe, life-altering injuries in this type of accident. If you or someone you love has been injured in a head-on collision, Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. wants to help you, too. A Westbury head-on collisions lawyer will investigate your case and help you recover compensation for the effects of these injuries on your life.
Driver Liability and Causes of Head-On Collisions
Head-on collisions occur for a variety of reasons. No matter what caused your head-on accident, Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. will investigate the accident and determine who is liable for your injuries.
Based on our experience litigating head-on collision lawsuits, they are often caused by the following behaviors:
- Drunk driving: impaired drivers, due to their diminished judgment and vision, are more likely to miss a “One Way” or “Do Not Enter” sign and turn the wrong way down a road or highway.
- Distracted driving: even looking down at one’s phone for half a second to read a text might cause a driver to miss an important sign indicating the direction of traffic flow or drift into oncoming traffic.
- Careless or reckless driving: some reckless drivers intentionally drive the wrong way, such as drag racers taking the “suicide lane” or impatient drivers passing on a double-yellow line.
- Missing or inaccurate road signs: a driver might end up facing the wrong way because a road sign directing traffic flow is missing or inaccurate. This could make the liable party in your case a municipality or road construction company that neglected to establish safe road signage.
No matter what liable party caused your head-on collision in Westbury, Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. will defend your rights. Call us for a free consultation at (516) 932-0400.
