How Do Head-on Collisions Occur?
There are many ways a serious car accident can happen and head-on car crashes are no different. Typically, head-on collisions happen when two cars are heading directly towards each other, but they can also happen from a side angle, which still results in a front-end collision. Head-on collisions happen in:
- Parking lots
- Parking garages
- One-way streets
- Traffic circles
- And countless other places.
Even if you don't see a vehicle coming directly toward you, a head-on collision can happen.
Injuries from Head-on Collisions
Head-on crashes happen suddenly and sometimes without warning. Because the force of these accidents is so great, serious injuries and damage can occur. If struck from the side, a driver and their passengers can suffer from:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Neck injuries
- Or worse.
Head-on collisions from the front are often catastrophic and result in serious injuries, sometimes resulting in disabilities or even death.
Medical Treatment After a Head-On Collision
Get medical attention immediately if you've been in a head-on collision. If you're lucky enough to avoid serious injuries that warrant an ambulance or hospital stay, you should see a qualified medical professional to assess your injuries. Some accident victims think that their injuries are minor and will heal in a short time. Don't ignore aches and pains from a car accident because they can signal a larger, more serious condition. Your well-documented medical treatment is essential to getting your bills paid.
