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.
