Head-On Crashes in California
Head-on collisions are some of the most lethal and dangerous crashes. These crashes can result in life-threatening injuries, even at low speeds. These collisions are often caused by inattentive motorists who veer into oncoming traffic.
Ten percent of all reported fatal collisions involve head-on impacts. Thousands are killed each year in head-on crashes. In some cases, injured parties may be able to pursue lost compensation with the help of a California personal injury attorney.
