When Two Vehicles Collide Head-On
A head-on collision is a type of a car accident where the front ends of two vehicles collide into each other, as opposed to a side-collision or a rear-end collision. Unfortunately, head-on collisions often have poor outcomes because of the speed involved when the collision takes place. A head-on collision commonly occurs when one vehicle strays into the path of an oncoming vehicle.
Head-on collisions are frequently caused by:
- A steering overcorrection
- Distracted driving behaviors such as texting while driving
- Drunk driving
- Drugged driving (including prescription medications)
- Falling asleep at the wheel
Head-on collisions are the most likely to occur on roads with narrow lanes, sharp curves, and no separation between lanes of opposing traffic. The severity of the crash, the property damage to the vehicles and the risk of death or injury increases with speed. The roads with the greatest risk of head-on collisions are busy, two-lane roads outside urban areas where speeds are at their highest.

Due to the nature of head-on collisions, they can easily destroy the motor vehicles involved and cause serious, if not life threatening injuries for the drivers and passengers. Because of the severity of these types of accidents, the damages can be far higher than your average traffic collision. Thus, it's important that you have an aggressive lawyer by your side actively pursuing as much compensation as possible on your behalf.
