Head-On Car Collisions
When two vehicles collide head-on, the results are frequently tragic. The amount of force in these collisions is astounding because both automobiles are frequently traveling at full speeds when the front ends smash into one another.
There are many ways that these types of crashes occur in Pennsylvania, including:
- Distracted Driving
- Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
- Drowsy or Sleeping Driver
- Failure to Obey Traffic Signals
- Improper Passing
- Poor Visibility
- Reckless Driving
- Road Hazards
- Tire Blowouts
- Unsafe Driving in Bad Weather
In head-on accidents, the impact alone can cause fatalities. People who do survive these collisions may sustain catastrophic head, brain, and neck injuries or spinal cord injuries that cause paraplegia, quadriplegia, or triplegia. Such victims will often face enormous medical expenses but have little means to pay them—or their other unrelated bills—because of an inability to work while recovering.
The car or truck driver who caused a head-on crash will be liable for all damage that resulted from the auto accident. Determining which party was at fault for causing the collision depends on where the crash took place and which vehicle entered the path of the other vehicle.
As a result, these types of collisions can require extensive investigations that may include painstaking reconstruction of the accidents, and the negligent driver’s insurance company will be responsible for compensating all injured victims. Unfortunately, insurance companies will dispute that the motorists they represent were negligent, and it can often be extremely difficult for people injured in these crashes to receive adequate compensation.
