What Causes Head-On Collisions?

What Causes Head-On Collisions?

There are many types of accidents that can occur, all of which can result in serious damages to the drivers and passengers involved. However, few of them have as much of an impact as a head-on collision.

These are very serious because it involves two vehicles traveling at higher speeds with force going against one another. As a result, most involved in these types of collisions suffer serious injuries as a result.

But do you know what causes these types of crashes? Our Houston auto accident attorneys explain some of the most common causes of head-on collisions and typically how it results in serious injuries to the drivers and passengers involved.

  • Fatigued driving: People who are tired may have trouble staying awake while they are on the road. Even closing their eyes for just a few seconds can cause them to lose control of the vehicle and serve into the other lane. This is a serious that causes serious harm.
  • Distracted driving: Did you know that looking down at a phone for just 5 seconds while driving at 55 miles per hour is enough to travel the length of a football field? This is plenty of time for a driver to swerve into oncoming traffic.
  • Drunk driving: Individuals who drive while intoxicated are often too inebriated to properly control their vehicle. This could lead to them skipping over lanes into oncoming traffic. As a result, head-on collisions may occur.
  • Passing when you shouldn’t: Some roads are just two lanes and allow for passing at certain points of the road. Other areas may be considered too dangerous to allow a pass. When people try to pass when they can’t see other vehicles approaching, it could be a head-on collision.

The Daspit Law Firm recognizes the serious nature associated with head-on collisions and we understand how important it is for victims to have someone looking out for their best interests. This is why our firm is committed to seeking the compensation injury victims need when negligence leads to a crash.
