Perhaps the most devastating of all of the vehicle collision types is the head-on collision. The force of both moving vehicles can combine to create a severe collision. Both passengers and drivers can suffer catastrophic injuries.
If you or a loved one was injured in a head-on collision, an experienced attorney at the Law Offices of Dean Standish Perkins & Associates can explain your legal rights for monetary compensation. It is our goal to help you recover compensation for lost wages, property damage, medical bills, and pain and suffering no matter the circumstances surrounding your accident.
Head-On Collisions Can Lead To Traumatic Brain Injuries Or Paralysis
Head-on collisions can be caused by a car drifting into oncoming traffic, or driving the wrong way down a one-way street. These accidents can result from numerous factors, including:
- Drunk drivers crossing the center line
- Fatigued drivers drifting into oncoming traffic
- Distracted drivers texting or talking on a cellphone while behind the wheel
The vehicle occupants can be seriously injured even at low speeds. The jarring motion of the collision can cause the body to be forcibly thrown forward and backward. Often, the head, neck or shoulders will strike the windshield, dashboard or interior door panels in a head-on collision. This can result in traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, neck injuries and spinal cord damage. These catastrophic injuries can have a lasting impact on your ability to function.
