Head-On Motor Vehicle Accidents
Head-on collisions are some of the most devastating motor vehicle accidents and are deadlier than other types of accidents because of the high forces involved. The force of two vehicles traveling in opposite directions hitting each other nearly always totals the vehicles and causes catastrophic injuries or even death to the occupants of the vehicles. The results are even worse if the vehicles are mismatched as when a semi-truck collides with a passenger vehicle.
Causes of Head-On Collisions
Head on collisions are often caused by negligent driving in the following situations:
- Making a u-turn or crossing a highway
- Failing to negotiate a turn which is often caused by driver inexperience or speeding
- Alcohol or drugs
- Driver drowsiness
- Driver distraction
- Driver confusion
In some cases, roadway factors can contribute to car crashes. Factors such as snow or ice on the highway or misplaced or confusing signage are factors that can contribute to an accident.
Injuries in Head-On Collisions
In a head-on collision, the lives of those involved change in a split second. Many times people suffer catastrophic injuries such as traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury including paralysis, blunt force trauma injuries and broken bones. These types of injuries often require care in a trauma unit and lengthy rehabilitation, and the road to recovery is often long. Many times, the victims never fully recover.
Sadly, many times there are multiple fatalities in head-on collisions.
