Deadly Head-On Collisions Statistics

In a head-on collision, the collision force is increased by both involved vehicles’ speed and weight. There is a lot of energy generated by head-on collisions. In turn, this increased energy means that injuries are more likely to be fatal in this type of crash. The injuries that can be survived can be severe, so victims of a head-on collision are also more likely to have permanent brain damage, amputations, or disabilities. 

Although head-on collisions only represent 2 percent of accidents, they account for 10 percent of fatalities on U.S. roadways.

Head-on collisions can cause severe injuries. This fact means that, sadly, not all victims will be able to survive a head-on crash. Surviving family members have the right to sue a negligent driver for wrongful death after a fatal head-on collision.

Common causes of head-on collisions are distracted drivers, inexperienced drivers, drivers that drive while under the influence of drugs and alcohol, and wrong-way drivers. 

Los Angeles Personal Injury Attorney for Victims of Serious Head-On Collisions

Pending the official investigation results, the victims are encouraged to pursue a personal injury claim with their attorney’s assistance. The liable party will be required by law to compensate for the medical expenses, lost earnings, and non-economic damages (such as emotional trauma, pain, and suffering). 

Head-on accidents can lead to severe injuries. Many of these injuries are permanent, and permanent injuries can lead to a lifetime of pain and suffering. The financial costs of these injuries are staggering: a lifetime of medical bills and lost wages for decades of work can quickly run in the millions of dollars.

This can happen even before one accounts for the intangible losses an accident victim suffers, such as physical pain and the emotional suffering of living with an injury or disability. Injury victims need to protect their legal right to compensation by hiring an attorney experienced in head-on accidents ASAP!
