Head-On Collision Accident Lawyer Calgary, Alberta
Automobile accidents are the leading cause of injuries and deaths in Canada. There are many types of auto accidents including rear-end collisions, side impact accidents, and head-on collisions. Often, the most dangerous collision is one that involves impact head-on. A head-on collision occurs when two vehicles crash directly into each other. Even at lower speeds they can be catastrophic due to the amount of energy involved with the crash.
If you have been hurt in a head-on car accident, call Pipella Law at 1-587-315-3008. These injuries can be serious and require a great deal of rehabilitation while they cost you pain, suffering, and serious monetary loss.
Causes of Head-On Car Crashes
A head-on car accident may be caused by any number of circumstances or conditions, some of which we have control over including unsafe passing attempts, falling asleep while behind the wheel, driving while under the influence of alcohol, illicit drugs, or pharmaceuticals, and/or inattentive driving.
Inattentive or distracted driving includes talking on a cell phone, texting, using “face time,” browsing the Internet on a cell phone or IPAD, or other device, putting on make-up, talking to passengers in the vehicle, blaring music, flipping through radio stations or finding music on your car stereo or IPOD, or using your GPS – all while operating a motor vehicle.
Factors we do not have control over are erratic weather conditions, poor roads or highways, and the behaviour of other drivers. If another driver disobeys traffic signals, runs a red light, or stop sign, and/or fails to yield to another vehicle, a head-on car accident may occur and you may sustain life-altering injuries as a result.
Injuries Seen In a Head-On Collision
Head-on crashes and accidents commonly occur at intersections or on two-lane roads when one vehicle comes into the other lane or into oncoming traffic. Even at lesser speeds, common injuries seen in a head-on accident may include cuts, lacerations, broken bones, joint injuries along with whiplash and TMJ symptoms. Some of the more severe accidents may cause brain, head and/or neck injuries. Spinal cord injuries, including paralysis, and wrongful death, may also be the result of a head-on car crash.
