Pittsburgh Attorneys Handling Head-On Accidents
The Romanow Difference helps you get more
Head-on collisions are very serious car accidents that can leave victims with severe injuries that are sometimes fatal. Survivors face months or years of medical treatment and may be left with a permanent disability. At Romanow Law Group, our head-on collision attorneys fight for the injured to make sure they get the treatment they need and the compensation they deserve.
These collisions usually happen because another driver was negligent. A driver was texting or fell asleep at the wheel. A driver may have taken a turn too fast or was under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Their car crossed into another lane, and the result was a head-on collision that left people hurt.
People who survive a head-in collision can be left with a wide range of injuries. These include:
- spinal cord injuries (resulting in paralysis)
- back injuries (such as fractured vertebrae or herniated disc)
- traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- broken bones
- chest trauma
- damage to internal organs
- whiplash (resulting in neck or back pain).
As a result of a head-on collision, you may need surgery, hospitalization, physical therapy, medication, home health care and multiple follow-up appointments with doctors and specialists. Medical expenses can become overwhelming very quickly, and you may be unable to work, so you have no income coming in.
Can I file a lawsuit after a head-on collision?
Yes. A head-on collision attorney can guide you through the legal process every step of the way. If you selected “no-fault” insurance, you may first have to file a claim for compensation with your own insurance company.
A lawyer can then help you file a lawsuit with the proper court. An attorney can then handle all communications with the insurance company and their lawyers so you can focus on healing from your injuries as much as possible.
The type and amount of compensation you can recover in a lawsuit will depend on the type of insurance you selected and the severity of your injuries. We can explain the legal implications of your accident and give you our best estimate regarding the value of your claim or lawsuit.
Our car accident attorneys are ready to fight for you
Recovering compensation can be complicated. Negligent drivers may deny responsibility for the accident. Insurance companies will try to pay you as little as possible. There are many tactics they use to try to limit compensation. They’ll challenge the seriousness of your injuries or argue the accident was mostly your fault.
That’s why you need an experienced and aggressive car accident attorney to fight for you. Our firm has the experience, legal knowledge, resources and commitment to build strong cases that get the attention of insurance companies. They know we are serious about getting the best results for our clients and are ready to fight them in court, if needed.
Our legal team investigates your head-on collision to get the facts. We gather evidence, carefully review accident reports and medical records, and interview witnesses. Our firm also has relationships with highly regarded experts who can help us understand how your accident happened and the effects that it has had on your life.
We are qualified to handle head-on collisions, no matter how big or complex they are. Attorney David Romanow has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for clients at big law firms.

Head-on collision lawyers committed to getting results
Any attorney can make a quick settlement with the insurance company, but that will leave you with less money. Our firm puts in the time and the effort to build strong cases and fight the insurance companies to get you the compensation you need and deserve. If we can’t get that through a negotiated settlement, we are ready to litigate.
If you’ve been hurt in a Pittsburgh head-on collision, it’s important to get legal advice as soon as possible. You have two years from the date of your accident to take legal action. That sounds like a long time, but the longer you wait, the more likely it is that evidence will be lost or destroyed and that memories of witnesses will fade.
You may not be sure what to ask – all you have are questions. How much is my case worth? Should I accept a settlement? What if I suffered whiplash from a head-on collision? Do I even have a case? We can help you get answers.
