A head-on collision is one of the most dangerous types of car accidents. This type of accident can be devastating to occupants in both vehicles. Head-on collisions happen most often due to driver errors, negligence or recklessness. Someone who is driving drunk, for example, may enter a highway the wrong way and cause a head-on collision.

What Is a Head-On Collision? What Are Common Related Injuries?
A head-on collision describes a crash between two vehicles approaching each other from opposite directions. In a head-on collision, both drivers crash into each other directly at the fronts (heads) of their vehicles rather than the rear or sides. A head-on collision happens at the combined speeds of both vehicles. If one driver was traveling 50 miles per hour and the other was going 80, therefore, the speed of the crash would be 130.
Due to the speed, forces exerted and point of impact in a head-on collision, injuries are often catastrophic or fatal. A catastrophic injury is an injury that will impact the victim for the foreseeable future. These injuries include organ damage, spinal cord injuries, crush injuries, burns, traumatic brain injuries and broken bones. If you have a catastrophic injury or a loved one passed away from injuries in a head-on collision, discuss a possible lawsuit with our attorneys.
