Head-on collisions are some of the most deadly accidents that a driver can be in. These types of car accidents can result in serious injuries and even death. Head-on crashes happen when a driver goes the wrong way on the road. Crossing the center line on a two way street or highway or turning the wrong way onto the road are potential ways that this kind of accident can occur. The combined force of the two vehicles is greatly amplified during a head-on car crash. Additionally, since the majority of the impact from the car accident is placed at the front of the car where the engine block is, these collisions can cause fatal explosions.  

Car accidents that happen as a result of a head-on collision can be devastating, but the team at Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys in Alexandria can help get you the justice you deserve. Contact us today for a free and confidential consultation.

What is a Head-On Collision?

A head-on collision (or a “frontal” crash) is when the front ends of two vehicles driving in opposite directions collide. This kind of accident could happen as a result of a distracted driver swerving across the centerline of a highway and crashing into another vehicle traveling the opposite way.

Causes of Head-On Collisions:

  • Distracted Driving - When drivers focus their attention on anything other than the road, they risk crossing over into the traffic in the parallel lanes and causing a head-on collision. These distractions can include phones, traffic signs and passengers.
  • Pileups - A multi-car accident may cause vehicles that are in the middle of the accident to be pushed into the parallel traffic. This can cause a frontal crash, or head-on collision.
  • Drunk Driving - Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol significantly impairs reaction times and the ability to make sound decisions. When this happens, the offending drivers can make mistakes or veer into oncoming traffic.
  • Poor Road Conditions - Issues on roads such as potholes and construction can affect a driver’s safety, and these bad conditions may even cause drivers to lose control of their vehicles, causing a front-crash car accident.

Common Injuries Suffered in a Head-On Collision:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Concussions
  • Whiplash
  • Head and neck injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Back injuries
  • Injuries from airbag deployment
  • Fractured and broken bones
