Common Causes of Head-On Collisions

As noted above, head-on collisions are some of South Florida’s most devastating and dangerous motor vehicle accidents. Due to the force, airbags and seatbelts may not offer enough protection to passengers, causing disabling or even fatal injuries. 

Head-on collisions have a range of causes, but some of the most common include:  

  • Distracted driving: When drivers are distracted by their phone, eating, or other activities while driving, they may not notice an oncoming car until it’s too late to take evasive action. 
  • Driving under the influence: Alcohol and drugs impair judgment and reaction time—increasing the chances of a head-on collision. 
  • Speeding: Exceeding the speed limit means you may not have enough time to react to an oncoming car. 
  • Poor weather conditions: Low visibility due to fog or rain is often cited as a reason for a collision. Similarly, icy roads make it difficult for cars to brake quickly enough before a crash. 
  • Mechanical failure: If a car’s brakes fail or another part malfunctions, the driver can lose control of their vehicle and drift into oncoming traffic. 

Head-On Collisions Can Cause Life-Altering Injuries

A frontal impact collision can potentially cause catastrophic injuries or a fatality. Recovering often involves extensive medical treatment, missed time from work, and long-term rehabilitation. In addition, there may be no guarantee of a complete recovery. 

Common injuries include the following: 

  • Broken bones 
  • Soft tissue damage 
  • Traumatic brain injuries 
  • Internal bleeding 
  • Spinal cord damage 
  • Death  

Contact a head-on collision accident lawyer immediately if you have been injured or lost a loved one due to a frontal impact accident.  

What to Do After a Frontal Impact Collision

The moments after a head-on collision are critical. To protect your health and chances of recovering maximum compensation, here are the steps you should follow–if possible: 

  • Assess Your Health and Seek the Appropriate Care. Even if your injuries seem minor, pursue medical care; often, symptoms don’t appear until much later. Also, ensure that the police come to the scene and file an official report—it will help in filing your insurance claim. 
  • Document All Evidence. Once you have taken the appropriate steps to secure your health and safety, collect evidence, such as pictures or videos of the accident scene, the contact information of witnesses, and driver’s license and insurance info from the at-fault motorist. Evidence enables your attorney to build a strong case and prove negligence. 
  • Hire a Lawyer. A dedicated and experienced lawyer with a track record of winning head-on collision settlements will provide the best chance of maximizing your compensation.
