Head On Collisions in the Dallas/Fort Worth Area

A head on collision occurs when two cars collide front-end to front-end. Sometimes these accidents occur when one car is stationary; however, more often both cars are travelling towards each other. For this reason, head on collisions can be some of the most dangerous car accidents. For example, although head-on collisions only account for 2% of all auto accidents, they result in 10% of all auto-accident fatalities.

Head on collisions can occur for a variety of reasons, but they all share one thing in common: someone was not following the posted traffic rules or was not paying as close attention to the road as they should have. Some of the more common ways that head on collisions can occur include when a driver:

  • Unknowingly travels down a one-way road;
  • Inadvertently drives the wrong way on the highway;
  • Veers outside of a lane and into oncoming traffic; and
  • Drives too fast in a parking lot.

While not all head on collisions are a result of careless driving, many are. If a driver is paying attention to the road, it is not difficult to avoid a head on collision. However, when a drunk, drowsy, or distracted driver is behind the wheel, the chances of getting into a head on collision greatly increase. If this happens to you, you should retain a head on accident attorney in Fort Worth to protect your rights.

Head on collisions are almost always due to the fault of only one driver. The other driver just an innocent victim of the other driver’s negligence. In these cases the innocent driver has the right to recover monetary damages from the negligent driver to compensate for past medical bills, future medical expenses, and the pain and suffering associated with the accident.
