Fatal Head-On Crash Statistics

A head-on accident occurs when two cars strike immediately while going in opposite directions. Even at moderate speeds, these impacts can cause significant injuries and even death.

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

Although head-on collisions occur for only 2% of accidents, they account for 10% of fatalities on US highways. Head-on incidents are more common when drivers are preoccupied or overtired.

There are numerous potential reasons for head-on collisions. Your attorney must investigate what exactly caused the accident because this will decide who was at fault (“liable”) for the accident. The individual who caused the accident is also legally obligated to pay you for your injuries and losses.
