Vehicles that collide head on, even at relatively low speeds, can cause a devastating impact to all vehicles involved resulting in serious injuries. That is why head-on collisions are considered the most severe of all car accidents.
Most head-on collisions occur when a driver is confused and travels the wrong way down a roadway. These crashes can be extremely dangerous on roads with higher speed limits, such interstates. Victims of head-on collisions face medical bills, ongoing care, loss of income, loss of work capacity, and intense pain and suffering.
