Head-on collisions are among the most violent types of car accidents, and
they often cause catastrophic injuries or death. Usually, these types
of accidents are caused by a car "drifting" out of its lane
on a two-lane road. When taking into considering the combined momentum
of the two vehicles, it is no wonder that the injuries that result from
such a collision are among the most catastrophic of all auto accidents.
A common cause of this type of accident is falling asleep at the wheel.
A driver may drift into the other lane because they are driving while
over-tired. Exhaustion can actually be just as dangerous as intoxication.
Both can significantly impair a driver's judgment. Another cause of
head-on collisions could be that a driver swerved to avoid something.
When drivers make abrupt movements, they risk over-compensating their
vehicle and swerving into oncoming traffic.
Although head-on crashes are one of the rarest in the United States (only
two percent of all crashes), they make up a total of ten percent of all
fatal crashes in the nation. This speaks to their severity. You may have
become the victim of one of these types of crashes. If you did, you will
need an aggressive attorney who is committed to fighting for every penny
that you deserve.
Serious Accidents Require Serious Representation
Even if fault appears to be clearly defined, you cannot trust that compensation
will be easy to acquire. Despite all of their promises, insurance companies
are not willing to pay anything more than they absolutely must. In fact,
