How head-on collisions happen
A head-on car crash is one in which the front ends of two vehicles collide while both cars are both in motion. In those cases, the injuries and property damage are much more severe. Often there is nothing the other driver can do to avoid the negligent driver from hitting his or her vehicle.
Head-on crashes are often the result of:
- Going the wrong way down a one-way street
- Veering out of a lane and into oncoming traffic
- Driving the wrong way on a high way
- Going the wrong way up an exit or entrance ramp
- Not paying attention in a parking lot
It seems impossible for a driver to make any of these catastrophic mistakes while operating a vehicle. Unfortunately, inexperienced, intoxicated, fatigued, or distracted drivers can make tragic errors in judgment.
Head-on crashes in Sevier County can cause horrific injuries
Head-on crashes only make up about 2% of the total car crashes in the United States each year, but about 10% of total fatal crashes in the U.S. result from head-on collisions, according to federal statistics. Why are front-end crashes so deadly? In some cases, the force of the crash causes a victim to be propelled through the front windshield. In other cases, the force of an airbag could break a person’s neck or suffocate them.
Other common injuries resulting from a head-on collision may include:
- Broken bones
- Herniated discs
- Severe bruising
- Internal bleeding
The severity of these types of crashes, combined with the high risk of a fatality occurring, can leave a family in serious financial trouble. At the Law Office of Bryan E. Delius, we fight on your behalf to ensure that you can care for yourself and your loved ones after a catastrophic head-on car accident.
