Head-on collisions are often one of the most serious types of car accidents. The force of two vehicles colliding with each other at high speeds of travel causes an enormous amount of damage. As such, head-on crashes often cause serious injuries or death. It’s critical that the victim of a head-on collision or their family contact an injury lawyer as soon as possible after the accident. It is often the time that an investigation must be done to determine which driver was the at fault cause of the accident.
