Have you been involved in a head-on collision? Talking to an attorney is an important first step to take in order to get more information about what you should do at this point to handle your insurance claim and seek the compensation that will help you with your medical expenses, damage to your car and more. Head-on accidents have the potential to cause serious or fatal
injuries, meaning claims of this kind are likely to be highly complex and difficult to deal with. A lawyer can guide you through this difficult time.
Statistics from Head-On Collisions Involving Passenger Cars
Head-on collisions are a leading cause of injury and death for passenger vehicle occupants. According to statistics published by the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) from 2008, 3,914 people lost their lives in head-on collisions involving multiple vehicles. In head-on accidents involving a passenger car and a light truck, van or SUV, the passenger car occupants were more than 4 times as likely to suffer fatal injury as the occupants of the larger vehicles. 1,220 passenger car occupants lost their lives in head-on collisions with light trucks. 299 light truck occupants lost their lives in these collisions. When a passenger car is involved in a head-on collision with an even larger vehicle such as a bus,
tractor trailer or
semi-truck, the results are likely to be catastrophic.
