Head-on crashes at intersections happen when drivers disregard traffic laws and signals, such as red lights, stop signs, or yield signs. Freeway head-on collisions usually occur when drivers enter the wrong way on on-ramps or off-ramps, sometimes due to intoxication or drug use.

Head-on collisions mainly occur when drivers are distracted or are experiencing over-fatigue. When facing a case like this, it’s essential to have an Alameda County personal injury attorney specializing in head-on collision crash cases to conduct an independent investigation. Attorneys have the resources to help the victim’s family to receive the justice that they deserve. They can re-interview important witnesses, review any related surveillance footage from the crash scene, and obtain phone and texting records of the liable party.
