Why Oakland Head-On Collisions are Serious
Head-on collisions are one of the most serious types of car accidents. There are two primary factors that come into play here:
- Because the front ends of both vehicles collide, the driver and front seat passenger are more likely to suffer serious injury. This is particularly true if the impact is severe enough to cause the front end of the vehicle to crumple and crush the driver and passenger.
- Head-on accidents involve two vehicles travelling toward one another. The resulting collision is therefore a combined total of the force and speed of both vehicles, meaning the impact is much greater than if they were travelling in the same or different directions. For example, if two cars are travelling toward one another, each at 40 miles per hour, the resulting collision would have the total force of one car travelling at 80 miles per hour and colliding with a fixed object.
The dangerous nature of a head-on collision means that the driver and passengers are more likely to suffer from serious injuries. This may lead to extensive medical bills, hospitalization, lost earnings from missed work, and severe property damage. Recovering financial compensation for all of these damages is important if you are to have the best opportunity of rebuilding and moving on.
