Head-On Collisions and Their Injuries

The Statistics Involving Head-On Collisions

There are several ways to get into a car accident. You can be involved in a rear-end accident, in which you or someone else hits the back of another vehicle. You can be involved in an accident in which you or someone else hits the side of a vehicle, also known as a "T-bone" accident. You can also be involved in an accident in which you or another driver sideswipes a vehicle, which is an accident that occurs often.

All of these accidents are common and can cause injury, but an accident that can cause a significant amount of injuries is a head-on collision. Head-on collisions are not common, with only 2% of these accidents accounting for all car accidents, but these accidents are dangerous, with 10% of fatalities in car accidents coming from these accidents. These accidents are so deadly because of the forces involved, so it's important to try to avoid them at all costs by paying close attention to the road around you and by not driving while distracted or impaired.

After being involved in a head-on collision, be sure to discuss your case with a competent vehicle accident lawyer who can help you fight to get the compensation you need.

Injuries That Occur in Head-On Accidents

These injuries often take a serious toll on their victims and can cause their victim to have a completely different life following their accident. Some of the injuries that occur in head-on collisions include:

Broken bones: Head-on collisions involve significant forces, meaning that bones that are involved in the act of driving a car, such as the bones in the arms and legs, can be broken due to the forces pushing against those bones. These breaks can be simple and be set easily by a doctor while other breaks are severe and need surgery and significant amounts of time to heal.

Internal bleeding: When a head-on collision occurs, a victim will be slammed against their seatbelt and against other parts of their vehicle. These impacts can cause internal organs to bleed or explode, causing internal bleeding. Internal bleeding can cause several issues, with organ failure and lack of oxygen to the brain being some of the worst issues that can occur in this situation. Internal bleeding must be addressed quickly by doctors to minimize the damage caused by this injury.

Traumatic brain injuries: These injuries are some of the worst injuries that can occur. Traumatic brain injuries can cause a victim to lose motor functions they previously had, lose their memories, and cause them to have other neurological issues through the rest of their life. These injuries can be very difficult to recover from, and often are hard to diagnose if no external injuries are present.
