Call or Visit Our Office
We have trained legal professionals available 24/7. In your first call we’ll get your contact information and hear your story. Plus, we’ll make an appointment that works for you so you can speak, in person, to a lawyer.
Free Initial Consultation
Discuss your case face to face with an accident lawyer. There’s no charge or obligation. Your Sobo & Sobo attorney will explain the next best steps to build a successful case for you.
You and your lawyer will organize your ongoing healthcare so you can continue to heal. Along the way, you’ll get updated medical records documenting your condition, care and treatment.
Your lawyer will help you collect all the paperwork you need for a successful case — one that maximizes your settlement in the least amount of time.
Litigation & Negotiation
Your lawyer will handle everything else. We prepare your case for trial and negotiate to achieve the best possible settlement without going to court. But even if there is a trial, you relax and we do the work.
You collect your settlement for medical care, damages, lost wages and pain & suffering. All your medical bills are paid off. Only then does Sobo & Sobo get paid.
Tell Us Your Story
Accidents can be complicated and loaded with pitfalls because both healthcare and the law are tricky. Your initial, person-to-person consultation with a Sobo lawyer will clear some things up, right away. It’s free and you have no obligation after sitting down with us. We’ll help.
In this first chat and soon thereafter, we’ll:
- Explain your rights

- Arrange emergency financing if available
- Discuss your special circumstances
- Walk you through the legal process, step by step

The victims of accidents are entitled to compensation for their losses. The amount of money paid to victims varies based on the severity of damages, injury and other losses suffered. Your Sobo & Sobo lawyer will explain:
- Medical Expenses: Getting them Paid
- Lost Wages: What You are Owed
- Property Damage: Fixing or Replacing Your Vehicle
- Pain & Suffering: Discomfort, Anxiety and More
We represent clients on a contingent basis. That means we do not collect any money until your case is won and money damages are paid. We receive a portion of those damage payments only after they are finalized. So, you are never “out of pocket” any money to us.

Who is at Fault in a Head-On Collision?
Head-on collisions are most commonly caused by one vehicle driving on the wrong side of a road or highway, causing them to collide head-on with another vehicle traveling the opposite way.
Most of the time, it is the driver that swerved, drifted or turned into the wrong lane that will be found at fault for a head-on collision. The most common reasons for drivers turning into the wrong lane include:
- Distracted driving from cell-phone use
- Driving while drowsy or tired
- Driving while intoxicated
However, there are scenarios in which the driver turning into the wrong lane did so unintentionally, for reasons outside his or her control. For example, a driver’s steering mechanism or brake system may have failed them. Or, they may have swerved into oncoming traffic to avoid a bicyclist or pedestrian, an animal in the road, or an icy patch, or some other kind of debris.
In any case, hiring a car accident lawyer with experience representing victims in head-on collisions can help you get the evidence necessary to prove your innocence in a head-on collision, and maximize your settlement to help pay for all damages resulting from the accident.
Types of Injuries Covered by Head-On Collision Lawsuits
Any serious injury from a head-on collision that causes you pain and suffering may be covered by compensation from a personal injury lawsuit. Common examples of these injuries caused by head-on accidents include:
- Neck injuries (most notably, whiplash)
- Spinal injuries
- Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)
- Internal & external bruising and lacerations
- Death (wrongful death lawsuits can also be filed for head-on injury accidents)
Head-On Collisions in New York
New York has taken measures to reduce the chances of drivers experiencing head-on collisions by installing highway medians—some made of concrete, others made of steel fencing or wire—that create physical boundaries between the sides of a highway where drivers travel in opposite directions.
In urban areas, where traffic speeds are generally slower, these medians seem to work more effectively compared to those installed on rural New York highways, such as those seen upstate. Here, traffic is allowed to move at higher speeds, and vehicles are required to take more long winding turns than their urban counterparts.
This accounts for the fact that head-on collisions make up close to 13% of all rural car accidents in New York, whereas they make up less than 7% in urban areas, according to the NHTSA.
