About Head-On Collisions and Fatal Car Accidents
Brockton Car Accident Victims Lawyers Serving Plymouth, Norfolk and Bristol Counties
A head-on collision is one of the scariest events anyone can experience. When two automobiles weighting an average of 2 tons collide into each other serious injuries almost always result. The greater the speeds involved, the more severe the injuries.
If two automobiles weighing 2 tons apiece traveling 40 miles per hour each crash into each other the occupants of each car will experience an impact equivalent to an eighty mile per hour collision. This combined force is a major contributing factor to fatal car accidents.
Seat-belts and airbags are often incapable of preventing the types of injuries generated from such impacts. The occupants in the front of the car often suffer the greatest injuries. Impact with the steering column or windshield, severe whiplash and getting crushed under the front end of the compacted car can lead to all kinds of injuries. Broken bones, strains, sprains and lacerations are the norm and in extreme cases accident victims suffer brain and spinal cord injuries, permanent disfigurement/dismemberment and even fatal car accident injuries.
These collisions often happen when one automobile crosses into the lane of on-coming traffic, but most accidents are caused by bad weather conditions or distracted drivers occupied with cell phones or changing the radio station. In some case drunk driving is the cause.
If there aren’t any eyewitness around to determine who’s at fault the circumstances of the accident such as skid marks, angle of impact and the position of cars after the accident will tell the story. Our law firm employs accident reconstruction experts in the event that liability is a question.
