Our Las Vegas head-on collision attorney is a dedicated advocate for seriously injured people.
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.
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:
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.
