What is a head-on collision?

A head-on collision is a type of car accident that occurs when two vehicles traveling in opposite directions collide front-to-front. This type of accident can be incredibly dangerous and often results in severe injuries and fatalities.

If you or a loved one have been involved in a head-on collision, it is important to take action as soon as possible. Here are some steps you should take:

  • Seek medical attention: Even if you feel okay after the accident, it is important to get checked out by a doctor. Some injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries, may not show symptoms right away.
  • Collect evidence: Take photos of the scene, gather witness statements, and get the contact and insurance information of the other driver.
  • Contact a personal injury attorney: A skilled attorney can help you navigate the legal process, deal with insurance companies, and fight for the compensation you deserve.

Here are some important things to know about head-on collisions:

  • Causes: There are many potential causes of head-on collisions, including distracted driving, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, fatigue, speeding, and driving on the wrong side of the road.
  • Injuries: Head-on collisions can result in a wide range of injuries, including broken bones, whiplash, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and more. These injuries can be severe and often require extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation.
  • Liability: Determining liability in a head-on collision can be complex, as there may be multiple factors that contributed to the accident. In some cases, both drivers may share liability for the collision.  However, head-on crashes typically occur when another driver veers into or drives in the wrong lane.
