What Makes Head-on Collisions So Dangerous?

In a head-on collision, two vehicles traveling in opposite directions crash into each other. The force of impact is compounded because of the speed of each moving vehicle. Even a relatively slow-moving head-on crash at 25 mph has a considerable force of impact. Considering that most people are driving at a higher speed, the impact of a head-on collision is often tremendous.

How Do Most Head-On Collisions Occur In Nevada?

  • Most head-on collisions occur when one driver, who is distracted or drunk, drifts into the oncoming lane of traffic, causing a crash with another vehicle.
  • A head-on crash can also occur when a fatigued driver falls asleep at the wheel and, with no driver controlling it, the car drifts into the oncoming lane.
  • Wrong-way driving is another common cause of head-on collisions when a driver turns the wrong way on a one-way street or enters a freeway through an off-ramp exit instead of an on-ramp entrance.

What Are The Most Common Injuries in Head-On Car Accidents?

The faster the vehicles are traveling before a head-on collision the more serious the injuries are likely to be. Common injuries in head-on collisions include:

Who Is Liable?

Liability in a head-on collision depends on which party was negligent. In this type of crash, negligence may involve distracted driving, drug or alcohol-impaired driving, drowsy driving, or sheer inattentiveness. Nevada is a modified comparative negligence state that allows proportional recovery if you are less than 50% responsible for the accident or injury. This means the damages you can recover in a personal injury claim are reduced by the percentage of fault for the accident you are assigned. You can recover damages as long as the other driver was more than 50% at fault.
