San Diego Personal Injury Lawyers Helping Those Harmed in Head-On Crashes

There are a number of different ways in which two vehicles can
collide, but perhaps the most violent and most dangerous involves
head-on collisions. When vehicles collide in this manner, it often
leaves behind a wake of devastation that includes serious injuries and
fatalities. People who have been injured because of the negligence of
another driver that led to a head-on crash face a difficult situation
for many reasons, one of which is the challenge of enforcing their legal
rights while attempting to recover from serious harm.

Below you will find an overview regarding the nature of head-on
crashes such that you will find information regarding common examples of
how they occur, common types of injuries that are suffered as a result
of these collisions and the potential damages that could be incurred
when someone is harmed in this manner. Anyone facing this situation
needs to obtain the help of experienced San Diego personal injury lawyers as soon as possible.

Common Causes of Head-On Crashes

There are many different ways that head-on crashes can occur, but
perhaps the most common has to do with the consumption of alcohol. Many
times when a motorist has consumed alcohol and then decides to get
behind the wheel of a vehicle, they will drive in the wrong direction
down a city street or a highway. Other motorists do not generally
anticipate seeing a vehicle coming directly at them at a high rate of
speed, and they are therefore unable to take evasive measures in order
to avoid a collision.

There are other common causes of head-on crashes, and many of these
examples occur on two-lane roads and highways. These crashes generally
do not involve the consumption of alcohol, but if a motorist simply
loses control of his or her vehicle for even one second that vehicle can
cross over into an oncoming lane of traffic and collide with someone
else.

Common Injuries Suffered in Head-On Crashes

When people are injured in head-on crashes, their injuries can and
often are severe. Given the nature of and the force generated by these
collisions, it’s common for people involved in them to suffer traumatic
brain injuries. Spinal cord injuries, broken bones, the loss of limbs
and deep lacerations are also common results of these incidents.

When someone is injured in a head-on crash that was caused by another motorist’s negligence, that injured person could file a California personal injury lawsuit
in response. If a lawsuit is filed and it’s successful, it could lead
to an award of damages that compensates that person for medical costs,
lost income and pain and suffering.
