Dallas Head-On Collision Attorneys

In 2015, over 580 people were killed in head-on collisions in Texas.

A head-on collision between two vehicles is typically considered to be the most severe of all vehicle collisions. Even at relatively low speeds, the impact can decimate both vehicles and leave occupants with devastating injuries.

The Dallas vehicle accident attorneys at Guajardo & Marks have years of experience representing clients who have been injured in all types of vehicle accidents. If you have been injured in a head-on collision, we can help you seek compensation to help relieve the financial burden you face following the accident.

Fortunately, these accidents are not as common as other types of vehicle collisions, but they are especially dangerous and much more likely to result in fatal injuries when they do occur. Let’s look at where and why head-on collisions might occur.

Where Head-On Collisions Occur

The majority of head-on collisions occur on smaller roads, like those found in rural areas. This is due to the fact that there is no divide between lanes. They might also occur on smaller roads where there are sharp curves and drivers have greater difficulty staying in their own lane.

Head-on collisions can also occur on one-way roads. When a driver is confused and travels the wrong way down a one-way road, they are positioned to cause a head-on collision with another vehicle. These can be extremely dangerous on roads with higher speed limits, such interstates.

Causes of Head-On Collisions

Like most types of vehicle accidents, head-on collisions are typically caused by driver negligence (in other words, driver error). Examples include:

  • Impaired Driving
  • Distracted Driving (using mobile devices, talking with other passengers, eating, etc.)
  • Drowsy Driving
  • Reckless Driving (travelling too fast, maintaining the wrong lane, improper lane shifts, ignoring traffic signs or warnings).

Injuries in Head-On Collisions

The sheer force of a head-on collision can lead to incredibly severe injuries for occupants of both vehicles. These injuries include:
