New York Head-On Collision Lawyers

Head-on collisions are relatively uncommon, only making up about 2% of all reported crashes each year in the U.S.  However, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports a 58% fatality rate for drivers and passengers involved in head-on collisions, making them one of the most dangerous types of accidents, and results in thousands of emergency room visits each year.

If you or someone you know has been in a head-on collision that was caused by another driver, the car accident lawyers at Sobo & Sobo can help you receive compensation for your damages. Filing an injury claim can help you pay for damages including medical costs and lost wages directly caused by your accident.

Who is at Fault in a Head-On Collision?

Head-on collisions are most commonly caused by one vehicle driving on the wrong side of a road or highway, causing them to collide head-on with another vehicle traveling the opposite way.

Most of the time, it is the driver that swerved, drifted or turned into the wrong lane that will be found at fault for a head-on collision. The most common reasons for drivers turning into the wrong lane include:

  • Distracted driving from cell-phone use
  • Driving while drowsy or tired
  • Driving while intoxicated

However, there are scenarios in which the driver turning into the wrong lane did so unintentionally, for reasons outside his or her control. For example, a driver’s steering mechanism or brake system may have failed them. Or, they may have swerved into oncoming traffic to avoid a bicyclist or pedestrian, an animal in the road, or an icy patch, or some other kind of debris.

In any case, hiring a car accident lawyer with experience representing victims in head-on collisions can help you get the evidence necessary to prove your innocence in a head-on collision, and maximize your settlement to help pay for all damages resulting from the accident.

Types of Injuries Covered by Head-On Collision Lawsuits

Any serious injury from a head-on collision that causes you pain and suffering may be covered by compensation from a personal injury lawsuit. Common examples of these injuries caused by head-on accidents include:

  • Neck injuries (most notably, whiplash)
  • Spinal injuries
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)
  • Internal & external bruising and lacerations
  • Death (wrongful death lawsuits can also be filed for head-on injury accidents)

Head-On Collisions in New York

New York has taken measures to reduce the chances of drivers experiencing head-on collisions by installing highway medians—some made of concrete, others made of steel fencing or wire—that create physical boundaries between the sides of a highway where drivers travel in opposite directions.

In urban areas, where traffic speeds are generally slower, these medians seem to work more effectively compared to those installed on rural New York highways, such as those seen upstate. Here, traffic is allowed to move at higher speeds, and vehicles are required to take more long winding turns than their urban counterparts.

This accounts for the fact that head-on collisions make up close to 13% of all rural car accidents in New York, whereas they make up less than 7% in urban areas, according to the NHTSA.
