Frontal Collisions Are Often Very Dangerous
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) calls head-on accidents the most common type of accidents that cause traffic accident fatalities. The IIHS is the leading organization that handles crash-testing and crash-test ratings in the United States.
Head-on collisions can occur in several scenarios, including:
- When a driver crosses over the center line and hits a car traveling the opposite direction.
- When a driver goes the wrong way on a one-way road.
- When a motorist drives on the wrong side of a divided highway or interstate.
- When a driver attempts to overtake another motorist without using due caution.
In many cases, this type of accident occurs because of:
- A fatigued or asleep driver, including commercial drivers.
- Distracted driving.
- Drunk or impaired driving.
- Aggressive driving, road rage, or reckless driving.
- Other negligent acts.
If another driver caused your frontal-impact accident, you may be able to hold them accountable and recover money damages for your injuries, expenses, and other losses. Call Sevenish Law Firm, P.C. now at (317) 636-7777 to discuss your case and your legal options with a member of our team. We may be able to help you secure a financial recovery.

Sevenish Law Firm, P.C. Takes on Personal Injury Cases
At Sevenish Law Firm, P.C., attorney Randall Sevenish and our team have taken on only personal injury cases since the firm’s founding in 1985. We know what it takes to build these cases, document damages, protect victims’ rights, and pursue liability and compensation. We believe no accident victim should have to suffer additional losses because they do not have someone who understands the risks and insurance company’s tactics following an accident.
All too often, we see accident victims opting for pro se representation or hiring a discount law firm following an accident, and we cannot discourage either of these options strongly enough. Without the knowledge and experience we have fighting for the rights of accident victims, it may be difficult or impossible to identify your accident injuries, losses, and expenses and negotiate a settlement that includes them. You are unlikely to have this experience, and so is the jack-of-all-trades lawyer from a discount firm.

Act Before Time Runs Out in Your Fishers Head-On Collision Car Accident Case
