What is a head on collision?

A head on collision is when two vehicles collide their front ends with one another. This is different from a rear end collision which is when a car rear ends another car. While a rear end collision can cause substantial damage and frequently is the cause of whiplash, head on collisions are much more dangerous. Front end collisions like these are even fatal some of the time. Because front end collisions are always the same they are always placed in the category of lane departure accidents. That is because to have a head on collision you must be colliding with a car heading in the opposite direction you are heading. It is considered lane departure because it requires one car to drift into the lane of opposite, oncoming traffic.

The extreme impact and angle in which vehicles collide in this type of accident, especially at high speeds, lead to catastrophic injuries and deaths. The negligence and carelessness of drivers should not go without its legal consequences. Our law firm is here to make sure that all negligent parties responsible for your head-on collision or the death of a loved one do not go unpunished.
