Please contact a Los Angeles auto accident attorney today if you were recently involved in a head-on collision. Auto accidents like these are often serious, and result in physical injury and property damage. The services provided by our legal professionals are essential in dealing with insurance claims, recovering money for medical bills, and other financial responsibilities. A head-on collision occurs when the front end of your vehicle comes in contact with the front end of another vehicle. The force at which the two cars collide is what makes head-on collisions particularly dangerous.

Basic mathematics show that if one vehicle is traveling at 40 miles per hour and the other is traveling at 60 miles per hour, the force of impact in a head-on collision will be 100 miles per hour. These numbers show that it is quite possible for a head-on collision to become deadly. Particularly in a head-on collision, the vehicle that is smaller will sustain the most damage. For example, if a sedan were to come in contact with a truck, the sedan would likely be totaled whereas the truck would likely sustain mild damage.

Causes of Head-On Accidents

A head-on collision may be caused in numerous ways. Passing is considered one of the main causes of head-on collisions, vehicles attempt to pass others and in turn collide with oncoming traffic. In addition to passing, distraction and drunk driving maybe also cause a head-on crash if the driver unintentionally turns into oncoming traffic. Furthermore, driving in the opposite direction in a one-way street as well as entering off-ramps on the freeway may also cause head-on accidents.
