Head On Collisions

A head on collision happens when the front end of two vehicles hit each other straight on or at an angle. We often hire engineering experts to help reconstruct what happened. More people are killed in head on collisions than any other type of automobile accident, because of the combined force of two moving vehicles. Tragic injuries and death are even more likely if the head on crash involves a car colliding with a larger vehicle such as a truck, an SUV, or a bus.



Causes of a Head On Collision


Head on collision are caused when passing, failing to negotiate a curve, or from drifting across a centerline into oncoming traffic, and poor road conditions. Because head on collisions are known to cause serious injury, disability, head injuries, brain damage and death, if you ever see a vehicle coming straight for you, it is usually advised that you do anything you can to avoid a head on hit, even if it means turning your wheel to the right and taking the shoulder of the road. But sometimes the collision just can't be avoided.


Head On Collision Injuries

Head on accident injuries are often quite severe and may include broken bones, brain damage, paralysis, and long-term disability. These kinds of serious injuries can result in extended periods of missed work, ongoing medical bills, the need for expensive adaptive equipment, long-term therapy, long-term care, and long-term disability. It is not unusual for a head on accident to result in death.
