Most front-end collisions are the result of driver negligence, though there are a number of different reasons a crash can take place.

Dangers & Causes of Head-On Accidents
Generally accidents that involve the front ends of both vehicles cause greater damage to property and are more likely to have fatal consequences and injuries. In most head-on crash scenarios the vehicles are not aware they are speeding toward each other, causing them to hit at high rates of speed.
Equally as dangerous in a head-on crash is the abrupt stop both cars come to once they collide. If both vehicles are traveling at 50 mph, for example, the cars will crash as if they hit a brick wall.
But why do people have head-on collisions? Below are some common reasons:
- Disobeying road signs and signals
- Drifting into oncoming traffic
- Driving distractedly
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol (DUI/DWI)
- Falling asleep at the wheel or driver fatigue
- Improper passing on a two-lane road
- Rounding a curve too quickly
- Texting and driving
- Traveling the wrong direction on the road
- Vehicle not using headlights
Very often, these accidents take place in construction zones, on highway ramps or in rural, undivided roads.
Only experienced head-on accident attorneys can truly determine who was at fault in your accident, which is why consulting a law firm is crucial if you believe someone else's negligence caused your crash.
