Head On Collisions – An Orlando Car Accident Attorney Can Help

Head-on accidents occur when two vehicles collide straight on from the front. It is a terrifying experience, and these accidents are among the most dangerous types of automobile crashes.

At TK Law in Orlando, our lawyers are dedicated to protecting the rights of all Florida car accident victims. If you or a family member has been seriously injured in a head-on collision, you have the legal right to seek access to the full money compensation you deserve.

While less common than most other types of multi-vehicle accidents on Orlando roads, head-on car collisions are particularly dangerous because the forward momentum of the vehicles is preserved in the crash. These types of accidents can be hard to avoid because they occur suddenly and there is often not enough time for drivers to take evasive actions.

Types of Injuries Suffered in Head-on Crashes

Auto AccidentsMany head on crashes in Florida result in debilitating injuries or fatalities, especially when one vehicle is significantly larger than the other.

High speed head-on accidents are so damaging because they subject drivers and passengers to tremendous forces. Yet serious injuries occur when even when low or moderate speeds are traveled.

Common injuries from head on car and truck collisions include:

  • Whiplash
  • Head injury
  • Brain injury
  • Burns
  • Lacerations
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Nerve damage
  • Bone fracture
  • Herniated or bulged discs
  • Joint dislocations

What Causes Head On Collisions?

The majority of accidents where vehicles collide head-on occur on undivided, two-lane roads in rural areas. Intersections are also a common site for this type of accident. Reasons for head on accidents include:

  • Unsafe passing – a vehicle attempting to pass another by pulling into the oncoming traffic lane
  • A distracted or drowsy driver veering across the center line
  • A distracted driver failing to see a stop sign or red light
  • Losing control around a curve – a driver swerving into the oncoming traffic lane while negotiating a curve
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Driving the wrong way down a one-way street
  • Illegal turn

Florida highway access is typically controlled by on and off ramps where traffic is divided by a center median, but on Orlando’s smaller, rural roads, even the best drivers are at risk of being injured or killed in a head on collision.

The most troubling part about these types of crashes is that, according to the National Safety Council, more than half of these accidents occur in daylight and more than 80% occur in dry weather. When driving conditions are not to blame for these accidents, it is the drivers—who are not paying attention, driving recklessly or at excessive speeds, or drinking and driving—who should be held responsible.

Vehicle manufacturing defects and defective auto parts may also contribute to or cause head on collisions, such as defective tires, braking system failure, fuel line defects and a whole host of other possible deficiencies.

How Our Orlando Car Accident Lawyers Can Help You

Our attorneys will carefully analyze the circumstances surrounding the collision, investigate the accident site, and the vehicles involved in the accident. We will locate and interview all possible witnesses, including police officers reporting at the scene. Many vehicles have computer boxes that can confirm the speed, the braking actions and performance, and the force of impact of the vehicle.

If you or a loved one sustained serious injury in a head on collision, keep in mind there is almost always someone at fault. When the fault is not your own, there was likely little you could do to get out of the way in time.

It is in your best interest to learn more about the circumstances that led to your accident, and pursue the money damages you deserve. It is not just about suing a careless driver’s insurance company; it is about obtaining the monetary compensation you need to cover medical costs, loss of income if you are unable to work now or in the future, and the pain and suffering you experience from the transferred force of the crash.

A good personal injury attorney can be invaluable in helping you recover these critical financial resources. At TK Law, our trial lawyers provide powerful and resourceful legal representation for victims of all types of complex vehicle accidents.
