Raleigh Head-On Collision Lawyer
A Raleigh driver involved in a head-on car accident can often experience a serious, if not fatal injury. When two cars, coming from opposite directions, collide in a front-end to front-end fashion, the results are often catastrophic. In fact, of all car accident deaths, 10% can be attributed to head-on collision.
The days and weeks after a serious car accident such as a head-on crash can be frustrating. The Raleigh car accident attorneys at Auger & Auger Accident and Injury Lawyers are familiar with the aggravation that comes with having your life disrupted by a car wreck that is not your fault. We can help you with questions regarding obtaining medical care, lost time from work, paying medical bills, damage to your car, alternate transportation, and more.

- Driving under the influence of an impairing substance
- Improper lane control

RALEIGH CAR ACCIDENT LAWYERS FOR SERIOUS INJURIES
The personal injury attorneys at Auger & Auger are devoted to skillfully representing Raleigh victims of head-on car accidents. Our offices can be found at convenient locations throughout North Carolina. Head-on collisions often result in catastrophic injuries. We can help you find conveniently located and appropriate medical treatment. If your car is not drivable, we will assist you with obtaining a rental vehicle. Our attorneys will handle all correspondence with the insurance companies and will protect your interests. The insurance companies employ highly trained adjusters whose job it is to minimize the amount the insurance company pays on claims. Often times, the adjuster will try to get you to accept a quick cash settlement, or take your tape-recorded statement soon after the accident, and will then try to use your words against you, and have you minimize your injuries. Attorney Arlene Auger has worked as an attorney for several large insurance companies and we know how the insurance companies operate. Let us put our experience to work for you.
Often times, there is insufficient insurance available on the at-fault vehicle to adequately compensate an injured victim. Our lawyers and support staff are highly trained to seek all sources available from which to recover money damages. With more than 40 years combined experience, we have collected millions of dollars for our clients.
IS TECHNOLOGY TO BLAME?
Most serious car accidents are the result of driver distraction, and the most common distraction is the cell phone. Recent studies have shown that talking on a cell phone while driving poses similar risks as driving while intoxicated. The study, which did not address texting or reading text or email content while driving, compared the driving performance of someone talking on a cell phone with the performance of a driver with a blood alcohol content of .08%. Not surprisingly, the study concluded that the impairments that correlate with talking on a cell phone while driving were as serious as those associated with drunk driving. The delayed reaction time of a driver using a cell phone drastically increases the risk of involvement in a head-on collision.
