Understanding The Causes Of Head-On Wrecks
Head-on collisions result in the violent combination of the forces of two vehicles. Often, individuals are not only injured by the impact of the collision, but also risk the possibility of being thrown from the vehicle. These accidents can be caused by numerous scenarios, including:
- Reckless driving
- Loss of control and crossing the center divide
- Failure to recognize dangerous weather conditions
- Driving faster than the weather conditions allow
- Distracted driving
- Loss of control on a corner
- Drunk driving
Head-on collisions are often the most catastrophic type of vehicle collision. Drivers and passengers can suffer head, neck and spine injuries as well as broken bones and multiple lacerations if thrown from the vehicle. If these accidents do not lead to fatalities, individuals will likely suffer serious, life-altering injuries. Let our firm fight to ensure your future financial stability.
