What are head-on auto accidents?
Head-on auto accidents refer to auto accidents in which the front ends of two vehicles collide. This can occur between two moving vehicles or a moving vehicle and a stationary vehicle.
Why Head-on Auto Accidents Are So Serious
Head-on auto accidents are very serious because of the nature of the collisions. When the two front ends of vehicles collide, the amount of force can be tremendous. This is especially true in head-on auto accidents that involve two moving vehicles. Because of the force of such collisions, major injuries are common, including serious head injuries, broken bones, neck injury, and spine injury.
Sometimes the accidents are so severe that they result in paraplegia, quadriplegia, and even death.
What does it mean to prove "fault"?
"Fault" in an auto accident means determining who is responsible for the auto accident occurring. The person who is responsible for the accident occurring will be held legally liable for injuries and vehicle damage. Our team of auto accident attorneys will be sure to look into these matter very seriously.
