Fatal Head-On Collision Statistics

Head-on collisions are probably one of the most fatal types of car accidents. During a head-on collision, the force of the collision is much stronger than other types of car accidents.

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.

Although head-on collisions only represent 2 percent of accidents, they account for 10 percent of fatalities on U.S. roadways. Head-on collisions mainly occur when drivers are distracted or are experiencing over-fatigue.

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 who is liable for the accident also has a legal obligation to compensate you for your injuries and losses.
