Head-on collisions occur when two motor vehicles collide as they are going in the opposite direction of one another. This could be caused from a mistake or willful disobedience of the law; either way, this could be a wrongful death. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2016, motorcyclist deaths increased by 5.1% from 2008 to 5,286 deaths. Also, the rate of fatalities of people killed while not driving in a vehicle (motorcyclists, bicyclists, etc.) has increased 13% in the past couple decades, as opposed to a decrease in the rate of fatalities among people killed while driving inside some type of vehicle. The injuries of a head-on collision are particularly risky for motorcyclists, who are much more susceptible to sustaining injuries, or possibly fatal injuries, from collisions on the road than are automobile drivers. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident due to recklessness, we at Agruss Law Firm are here for you every step of the way to ensure that your rights are protected and you are fully compensated for your injuries and losses, and this includes working with the insurance company on your behalf to ensure a favorable settlement.
Head-on collisions are among the most damaging accidents that can occur on the road. It can cause immense and severe damage to parties involved, as well as surrounding parties experiencing collateral damage. Head-on collisions can be a result of reckless, negligent or distracted driving and can be proven so depending on how the collision occurred.
Who is at fault in a head-on collision?
It can be difficult to determine who is at fault in this type of accident, since they cause so much disarray and damage that it is difficult to know how it originally was caused by witnessing the aftermath. One helpful thing that can help you in a personal injury claim is to collect witnesses of the accident if you are able to. This way, there is a third party that saw the collision take place and will be more likely to place fault on one party.
