Head On Accidents

Car, truck and motorcycle accidents are one of the leading causes of injuries and deaths today in the United States. This applies to people of all ages. There are many types of motor vehicle accidents one can be in such as rear end collisions, side impact accidents and head on collisions. Of these, typically the most dangerous is a head on collision. A head on collision occurs when two vehicles crash into each other head first. Even at a lower speed they can be tragic accidents due to the amount of energy, inertia and momentum going into the crash.

Causes Of Head On Car Accidents

Head on accidents can be caused by any number of circumstances or conditions. Some of which we have control over such as unsafe passing attempts, falling asleep while driving, driving while being intoxicated or inattentive driving. Inattentive driving includes talking on cell phone while driving, texting while driving and browsing the internet via mobile phone while operating a motor vehicle. Factors we do not have control over are weather conditions, road conditions and the behavior of other drivers. If another driver disobeys traffic signals, runs a red light, stop sign or fails to yield a head on car accident may occur and you can sustain debilitating injuries as a result.
