Fatal Head-On Collision Statistics

When two vehicles collide head-on while traveling in opposite directions, it is called a head-on collision. Even at low speeds, these collisions can cause serious injuries, if not death.

Head-on collisions are one of the most dangerous types of car accidents. The collision force in a head-on collision is much greater than in other types of car accidents.

Head-on collisions are common at traffic lights, stop signs, and blind intersections, as well as on freeways. Head-on collisions on freeways typically occur when drivers enter the wrong way on on-ramps or off-ramps, sometimes due to intoxication or drug use.

Although head-on collisions account for only 2% of all accidents, they account for 10% of all fatalities on U.S. highways.

There are many potential causes of head-on collisions. Your attorney needs to determine what, exactly, caused the accident because this will determine who was at fault (“liable”) for the accident. The person liable for the accident also has a legal obligation to compensate you for your injuries and losses.
