Head On Collision
Car, truck and motorcycle accidents are one of the leading causes of injuries and deaths today in the United States. This applies to people of all ages. There are many types of motor vehicle accidents one can be in such as rear end collisions, side impact accidents and head on collisions. Of these, typically the most dangerous is a head on collision. A head on collision occurs when two vehicles crash into each other head first. Even at a lower speed they can be tragic accidents due to the amount of energy, inertia and momentum going into the crash. If you’ve been the victim of a head on collision, a Maryland Car Accident Lawyer can help you get the compensation you deserve.

Causes of Head On Car Accidents
A head on car accident can be caused by any number of circumstances or conditions. Some of which we have control over such as unsafe passing attempts, falling asleep while driving, driving while being intoxicated or inattentive driving. Inattentive driving includes talking on cell phone while driving, texting while driving and browsing the internet via mobile phone while operating a motor vehicle. Factors we do not have control over are weather conditions, road conditions and the behavior of other drivers. If another driver disobeys traffic signals, runs a red light, stop sign or fails to yield a head on car accident may occur and you can sustain debilitating injuries as a result.
Injuries Seen in a Head On Collision
Head on crashes frequently take place at intersections or on two lane roads when one vehicle comes into the other lane and into oncoming traffic. Even at lower speeds common injuries seen in a head on accident can include cuts and lacerations, broken bones, joint injuries as well as whiplash. Some of the more severe accidents can cause brain, head and neck injuries. Spinal cord injuries, including paralysis, and wrongful death can also be the result of a head on automobile crash.
