If a victim has died in a head-on collision, the estate’s representative may file a wrongful death lawsuit on the victim’s behalf. Keep in mind that timing is essential in wrongful death claims. If you have been injured in a head-on collision, contacting an attorney who can focus on the legal dealings while you focus on your recovery is vital to preserving your rights.
Head-On Collisions Can Cause Catastrophic Injuries
Head-on collisions have a high likelihood of causing significant injuries for those involved in the accident. A head-on collision at any speed can cause catastrophic injury and can even be fatal.
Most head-on collisions are caused when one of the drivers involved in the accident is driving while intoxicated and has veered into on-coming traffic. Head-on collisions can also be due to fatigued driving where a driver has fallen asleep, or distracted driving where a person has taken their attention away from the road.
Victims injured in head-on collisions often need considerable medical treatment and time away from work to focus on their recovery. Financial hardships also accompany these healing efforts as costs accrue.

Personal injury cases are potential options for victims who have been injured by another party’s negligence in a head-on collision. These claims require a showing that the defendant has breached an owed duty of reasonable care to a plaintiff, leading to his or her injuries and resulting in damages. If a driver fails to look up from their phone and veers into opposite-facing traffic, striking another car, he or she has breached the duty to other motorists to act reasonably on the road. Victims injured by a negligent driver may be awarded compensation for their past and future medical costs, lost income, diminished earning capacity, and, in some cases, pain and suffering damages.
