When Two Vehicles Collide
Head-on collisions often result in serious injuries or death. You may or may not remember learning in science class about the laws of motion but some of the ones that explain a head-on collision are pretty basic:
- When two heavy, moving objects collide, the force of the impact on both objects is great
- When this occurs with two cars and people in them, the damage to the vehicles and the injuries sustained by the people in the cars, are often great. While head-on collisions count for only about two percent of all accidents, they often cause as much as ten percent of all car accident fatalities.
This, along with many other factors is why it can be helpful to talk to an experienced and understanding head-on collisions attorney as soon as possible after an accident occurs.

Common Head-on Collision Injuries
Luckily, head-on collisions accidents do not happen frequently because when they do happen, the injuries sustained are often very serious or fatal. The magnitude of the forces involved in head-on collisions often cause the following types of injuries:
- Broken and fractured bones
- Brain injuries
- Head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Internal organ damage
- Internal bleeding
These kinds of injuries are painful when they occur and are often hard to heal. Sometimes people do not fully recover from these injuries for example, not being able to use one or more limb or having different cognitive abilities than those present prior to the injury that caused them.
