About one out of every 50 car crashes in the nation can be classified as a head-on collision. Due to the fact that head-on collisions have the highest frequency of fatalities, this figure should not be taken lightly. In addition to fatal injuries, head-on collisions often cause serious and debilitating injuries.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a head-on auto accident caused by the actions of another driver, it is crucial that you speak with one of our attorneys at Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers as soon as possible.

Common Causes Of Front-End Crashes
When two vehicles that are moving in opposite directions crash bumper to bumper, this is considered a head-on collision. It is important to note that head-on collisions can also occur when one vehicle directly hits a fixed object straight on. Typically, head-on car crashes are caused by automotive malfunctions or simple driver negligence.
The most common circumstances that result in a head-on auto accident include:
- Taking a corner at high speeds
- Making a wide turn around a blind bend
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics
- Tire blowouts
- Animals, debris or other obstacles on the road
- Altered traffic patterns or construction
- Poor weather conditions that cause low visibility
- Failure to follow road signs
- Turning into the path of on-coming traffic
- Poor passing judgment
As with most auto accidents, general driver negligence is often the underlying cause of most serious collisions. By staying alert when behind the wheel, and driving defensively at all times, can help to minimize the risk of a head-on crash.
