Common Causes of Head-On Collisions

There are many types of car accidents that occur on Florida streets, highways and freeways. Rear-end accidents are among the most common, but head-on collisions are few and far between. Head-on car crashes are far more severe in nature and can easily lead to catastrophic injuries and fatalities.

These types of accidents can be caused by a number of things, but it usually comes down to simple and utter negligence. If that is the case, then the driver at fault could be held liable to pay for the financial and non-financial damages that stem from the accident. Our car accident attorney can help you get to the bottom of your case to find out who was at fault for the accident and what the main cause was that led to the collision.

Some potential causes for head-on collisions include:

  • Drunk Driving
  • Distracted Driving
  • Falling Asleep at the Wheel
  • Tire Blowouts
  • Losing Control of the Vehicle
  • Brake Malfunctions
  • Hazards on the Road
  • Defective Car Parts

By determining the cause of your head-on accident, it can help you better prove who is at fault and who is responsible for paying the damages. For example, if your brakes failed right before impact or a tire blowout occurred causing you to veer into oncoming traffic, then the accident could have been caused by defective car parts. This would mean that the car manufacturer may be responsible for your injuries.
