Head-On Collisions in New Hampshire

Injured? Seek the help of a New Hampshire Car Accident Lawyer

Any type of car accident can result in serious injuries. Head-on collisions; however, are generally the most catastrophic. The reason behind this has to do with physics and the motion of the two cars. When combining the momentum and speed of two vehicles heading toward each other, the impact in the accident is greater than other types of accidents. On top of that, the drivers are close to the point of impact in a head-on collision.

In rear-end or side-impact crashes, there is a chance that the accident is on the opposite side of the car than the driver. In a head-on, both drivers are near the front of the vehicle, where the impact occurs. If you have been injured in this type of accident, team up with a New Hampshire car accident attorney from Mulvey, Cornell & Mulvey.

Causes of Head-On Collisions in New Hampshire

The scenario that often leads to this type of accident would be crossing over a double yellow or some sort of median, putting the vehicle on the wrong side of the road. The causes that can result in this type of accident include:

  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Driving while distracted
  • Reckless driving
  • Driving while fatigued
  • Speeding
  • Unsafe road conditions

If under the influence, drivers often do not notice that they have crossed a median or gone the wrong way on a road until it is too late. Driving while distracted is one of the leading causes because it can take your eyes off of the road. It only takes a few seconds to drift into another lane and cause an accident. Distracted driving, reckless driving, speeding and slippery road conditions can all cause a driver to lose control of the vehicle and stray into oncoming traffic.

Common Head-On Accident Injuries

With the significant impact involved in these accidents and the forward momentum that the passengers will undergo after impact, serious injuries can follow. The injuries can increase in severity depending on the speed of the vehicles. Either way, two vehicles traveling towards each other at any speed can cause a hard impact and serious injuries. Some of the more common injuries suffered in this type of collision include:
