When a motorist drives into oncoming traffic, the odds of a deadly head-on crash are high. These types of accidents are more damaging than other two-vehicle crashes. Crash statistics indicate that these head-on crashes have a 60% fatality rate. Even though these accidents only account for about 2% of all annual automobile crashes in the state, they cause about 10% of all annual crash fatalities.
Survivors of head-on collisions often endure catastrophic injuries. These crashes can occur when a driver cannot or does not maintain control of their vehicle. This can be the result of drunk, distracted, or speeding drivers.
If you are considering filing a personal injury claim after a head-on crash, it is essential that you secure legal representation from an experienced attorney who knows the physics behind your accident and the legal nuances that apply to it.
