What Can Cause a Head-On Car Crash
Head-on car crashes are a very common type of automobile accident in South Florida. There are many causes of head-on collisions including the at fault driver driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, distracted driving, texting while driving, usage of a cell phone while driving, eating or drinking while driving, putting on make-up or other personal grooming and inclement weather resulting in poor visibility, wet roads and flooding.
Head-on automobile crashes can happen when the at fault driver:
- Crosses over a median into oncoming traffic;
- Driving the wrong way;
- Falls asleep or otherwise becomes incapacitated;
- Attempting a left hand turn in front of oncoming traffic.
Drivers and passengers involved in head-on collisions frequently result in the vehicle occupants being killed or serious injuries such fractures of bones, head and brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, lacerations and burns from the deployment of the vehicle airbag.
How to Hold the At-Fault Driver Responsible for Your Injuries
Most head-on car crashes happen because the at-fault driver acted carelessly. Acting carelessly under Florida law is the failure to use the care a reasonable person would use under similar circumstances. If someone breaches this duty to use reasonable care while operating a motor vehicle in the State of Florida and this results in someone being injured or killed then the victim and their loved ones are entitled to seek money to compensate them for their injuries, other damages or the loss of a loved one. Damages in head-on collisions frequently include medical expenses, loss of income, loss of enjoyment of life, scarring and pain and suffering.
