Fatal Head-On Collision Statistics

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. But why are head-on collisions so damaging? It’s because, 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.

Wrongful Death Attorney for Victims of Fatal Head-On Collisions

California law allows surviving spouses to sue for loss of consortium. The phrase “loss of consortium” refers to the emotional losses one suffers due to the untimely death of a spouse. It covers the pain associated with the loss of affection, comfort, love, and even the loss of sexual relations.

In a wrongful death suit, the survivors sue the person responsible for an untimely death and the financial losses they caused. These losses can include funeral and burial expenses and all the lost wages the victim would have earned between the time of the accident and their expected retirement.
