Head-On Collision Accidents
Fighting for Your Compensation in Walla Walla
Some of the most dangerous types of car accidents are head-on collisions. These types of accidents occur when two vehicles are facing each other when they collide. This can happen when a vehicle crosses over a median line or divider and starts driving into on-coming traffic.
A more extreme example might be a drunk driver who was driving on the wrong side of the road or who tried entering the freeway by using the wrong ramp. The higher the speed of the vehicles involved in a rear-end collision, the more dangerous the accident becomes.
Just like all motor vehicle accidents, head-on collisions are usually caused by acts of negligence, such inattention or distracted driving. In some cases, head-on accidents may even be caused by a driver losing control because of a vehicle defect. In that case, the auto manufacturer is typically at fault.
