Head-On Collisions

Car accidents are one of the leading causes of injuries and deaths today in the United States. This pertains to people of all ages. There are many types of auto accidents one can be in such as rear end collisions, side impact accidents and head-on collisions. Of these, typically the most dangerous is a head-on collision. A head on collision occurs when two vehicles crash into each other head first. Even at lower speeds they can be catastrophic due to the amount of energy going into the crash.

Causes of Head-On Car Crashes

A head-on car accident can be instigated by any number of circumstances, driving behaviors, weather and road conditions. Some of which we have control over such as unsafe passing attempts, falling asleep while driving, driving while being intoxicated or distracted driving. Distracted driving includes talking on cell phone while driving, text messaging while driving and browsing the internet via mobile phone while operating a motor vehicle. Factors we do not have control over are weather conditions, road conditions and the behavior of other drivers. If another driver disobeys traffic signals, runs a red light, stop sign or fails to yield a head-on car accident may occur and you can sustain debilitating and life altering injuries as a result.

Injuries Suffered in a Head-On Collision

Head on crashes frequently take place at intersections or on two lane roads when one vehicle comes into the other lane and into oncoming traffic. Even at lower speeds common injuries seen in a head-on accident can include cuts and lacerations, bone injuries and fractures, joint injuries as well as whiplash. Some of the more severe accidents can cause brain, head and neck injuries. Spinal cord injuries, including paralysis, and wrongful death can also be the result of a head-on car crash. A skilled and tenacious accident lawyer will determine the true extent of your injuries and get you the compensation you deserve.
