Head-on collisions are catastrophic events which lead to serious injuries and even death. U.S. statistics show that head-on collisions make up only 2 percent of all crashes, but account for nearly 10 percent of all fatal crashes. These types of crashes are often fatal due to the violent nature of the collision. Head on collisions can result from a variety of different situations. These can occur when a driver is not paying attention and swerves onto oncoming traffic. According to the Fatal Analysis Reporting System (FARS), 75 percent of head on crashes occur on rural roads. These head on collisions occur frequently when one driver tries to pass another on a two lane highway, and the driver will not have enough space to pass causing the driver to hit another vehicle in the other lane. Drunk drivers are also another main cause of head-on collisions and unfortunately, the people injured or killed in these collisions are innocent drivers who do nothing wrong but are injured because of the careless act of the other driver. Often times the families of these innocent victims of head-on collisions are left to pick up the pieces alone. In these circumstances, don’t be alone, contact Cliff Cardone who can provide legal assistance to you in these tragic times.
The injuries resulting from a head-on collision are more often than not horrific. These injuries include brain and spinal damage, broken bones and fractures, amputations, and back and neck injuries. Injuries such as these are life changing events and cause emotional, physical, and financial harm to loved ones and family members. When you are confronted with a head-on collision there are few options to steer clear of the collision, but there are a certain number of safety procedures to follow to prevent such a situation. Always drive when you are sober and alert. Drive the speed limit because this will give you more time to react to hazards, and if there is a collision then it will be less damage due to the lower speed. Also, always wear a seat belt because this has been proven to save lives in a head-on collision.
