How Do Head-On Collisions Occur?
When handling a head-on collision case, our attorneys conduct thorough investigations to determine the cause of the accident and to identify liable parties. We are experienced personal injury lawyers and know how to counter the tactics insurance companies try to use to limit our clients’ compensation.
Head-on collisions occur when a driver:
- Crosses the centerline on an undivided highway
- Drives over the median on a divided highway
- Drives the wrong way on a one-way street, road or ramp
Since roads are designed to keep traffic flowing in the right direction, head-on collisions are typically the result of a significant error on the part of a driver. Negligent behaviors such as drunk driving, distracted driving and falling asleep at the wheel are common causes of head-on collisions.
