Head-On Collision Lawyer

Car accidents can be extremely traumatic experiences, no matter what the details and circumstances surrounding the incident are. Nevertheless, some of the most frightening and catastrophic car accidents are those which involve a head-on collision. In many cases, this is due in large part to the high level of speed being generated at the point of impact. Depending on the conditions, the crash speed of a head-on-collision accident can rapidly approach 100 miles per hour. Such a powerful accident can lead to extremely serious and sometimes fatal injuries. Head-on collisions are not random events, they are nearly always the result of negligence on the part of one driver who made an illegal move into an oncoming traffic lane. Head-On Collisions cause some of the worst injuries imaginable from a Car Accident. The reason is that you move towards the impact point of the collision. In other words, you move forward first, and therefore do not get the benefit of any protection from the seat back in your car. Upon initial impact, airbags explode and can cause significant air bag-induced injuries, including blindness. Some of the other notable injuries from head-on collisions are:
  • Death
  • Brain Damage
  • Quadriplegia
  • Paraplegia
  • Broken neck from seat belt
  • Lacerated livers and kidneys
  • Fractured extremities
  • Major dental injuries
  • Significant Psychological injuries
