When the two front ends of vehicles hit each other, it is a head-on collision. A head-on collision is a severe accident. When a driver drifts into the center dividing line or fails to yield, a frontal collision is likely to occur. More than 500 people are killed per year on Texas roads due to head-on collisions. In cases involving death, almost 40% of the people were not wearing seatbelts at the time of the car crash.
A head-on collision can create a complicated legal matter. Our Waco car accident attorneys will investigate the case based on their decades of personal injury law experience. Also, complicating matters may the presence of different traveling directions, whether there was a stop sign, who had the green light, and whether the drivers violated any traffic laws.
Head-on collisions cause catastrophic injuries because of the extreme forces involved. For example, if two vehicles traveling at 60 miles per hour strike each other head-on, then the energy is the same as one car hitting a wall going 120 miles per hour.
An insurance company will minimize your injuries and shift blame. We want to hear your story and make sure that the person who caused the accident is held responsible. You will likely never forget being involved in a head-on collision. It is a terrifying experience.
