Head-On Collision Car Accident Lawyer in San Diego

Common Causes of Head-On Collisions

While the best way to keep yourself safe on the road is to practice proper defensive driving techniques, there’s nothing you can do to change the actions of a negligent driver, a bad roadway, or a defect in a vehicle. Some of the most common causes of these types of crashes, and the resulting injuries, include:

  • Poorly marked roads
  • Poorly maintained roads
  • Poorly designed roads
  • Using a phone or other mobile device while behind the wheel
  • Drowsy driving
  • Road rage
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Speeding
  • Steering, tire, wheel, or brake failures on the cross-over vehicle
  • Poorly designed or non-functioning safety features in the struck vehicle, such as airbags, pretensioners, seat belts, seat backs and headrests

While all types of car accidents can result in a terrible crash, head-on collisions almost always result in serious injuries and catastrophic damage to all vehicles involved.

  • “We could not be happier with the McCllelan Law Firm team! My husband and I were referred to Craig McCllelan by one of his peers. We had a very sensitive medical malpractice case that we were hesitant to even pursue. Craig and his team sat down and walked us through the entire process giving us their honest opinion and options. We felt very comfortable with the process and completely relieved by the end of the first meeting, so we decided to proceed. It is three years later and we couldn't be happier that we did. Craig, Connor, and his team made the entire experience so easy and smooth. They were always available no matter how small our question or concern. I swear they work 24/7! And most importantly, we knew that they truly cared about us and the outcome. They fought for our family and have given us the piece of mind that our son's healthcare will always be covered. It is truly the greatest gift and we will forever be in their debt!”
