If you've been hurt in Vancouver, call Colin Scott
Head-on collisions can have devastating consequences. The people involved may be left with severe injuries that affect them permanently. Recovering compensation after these types of car accidents can be a difficult and lengthy process. If you were injured, head-on collision attorney Colin Scott of The Scott Law Firm, PLLC can fight for your rights.
The cause of head-on collisions is very frequently negligent drivers. A driver may have been distracted - for example, by texting on their cell phone - and not paying attention to the road. A driver may have fallen asleep at the wheel. Or a driver may have been under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. The result, driving directly into the path of an oncoming car, can be devastating.
But the problem is that negligence can be difficult to prove. Drivers often deny responsibility for causing a head-on collision. They may even try to blame you for what happened. In this "he said she said" scenario, insurance companies are often willing to believe the other driver. That's because they are looking for any excuse to pay you as little as possible for your injuries.
The types of injuries suffered in a head-on collision are often very serious. They include broken bones, internal injuries, traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injuries. Recovering from these injuries can sometimes take years. Some victims are left with a permanent disability that requires constant care.
Medical expenses can become overwhelming very quickly following a head-on collision. These expenses may include surgery, hospitalization, physical therapy, medication, follow-up care and home modifications. Insurance companies and their lawyers may fight claims for compensation because they know there's a lot of money at stake.
A passion for justice
That's why you need a dedicated attorney on your side who will fight back to help you recover the compensation you need and deserve. Attorney Colin Scott opened his practice in Vancouver, WA - The Scott Law Firm, PLLC - to help injury victims recover financial compensation so they can get the treatment and care that they need.
Colin knows how to investigate your accident and get the facts. This often involves reviewing police reports and other records, overhead maps of the collision scene, photographs of the property damage to all vehicles involved, and interviewing witnesses. If needed, Colin may also consult with specialists, including engineers and medical professionals. He knows how to build a strong case that can prove the negligence of another driver who caused the collision and left you injured.
Colin also uses his knowledge and experience as an injury attorney to estimate the total damages you have suffered as a result of your car accident. This includes current and future medical expenses related to your injury. It can also include past and future lost wages (if you were left unable to work), travel expenses, and other pecuniary losses related to the crash. He also considers other damages, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress and disability that may have resulted from a head-on collision.
When insurance companies see that we are serious about helping you recover the compensation you deserve, they often agree to settlement negotiations. But any resolution of your case has to be one that meets your needs. In other words, you make the decision whether to accept or reject a settlement offer. If the insurance company does not agree to a fair settlement, Colin will likely recommend that you file a lawsuit, in which case he is prepared to fight for you in court.
