Have You Been Hurt in a Head-On Collision?

Head-on collisions are common types of car accidents in California that happen when two vehicles heading in opposite directions collide with their front ends. Common causes of head-on collisions include impaired driving, wrong-way driving, distracted driving, speeding, poor road conditions, fatigued driving, among others. 

Determining fault in a head-on collision involves a careful examination of the facts and circumstances of the accident. Investigators gather evidence from the accident scene, eyewitnesses, and other relevant sources and use it to determine where liability falls. The liable party or parties may be held responsible for the damages resulting from the head-on collision. This can include compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, and other losses associated with the accident.
