Head-On Collision Injury Lawsuits
The vehicle that was on the incorrect side of the highway, heading the wrong way on a road or that veers into another vehicle, regardless of the reason, and collides with another car driving safely, will be held liable for injuries. Where it cannot be easily determined that one driver was disobeying the rules of the road, it will be difficult to assign fault and thereby responsibility for injuries. This will require an experienced Massachusetts personal injury attorney to hire experts on car accident scenes to replicate the scenario and find fault.
Whenever a head-on collision occurs, however, there are usually strong signs that one driver was operating the vehicle improperly. Typically, the driver was negligent, or reckless, and somehow entered into the injured party’s lane improperly. Such collisions cause severe injuries to all parties involved. The most typical injury is known as whiplash, along with back pain. Catastrophic injuries occur, as well as fatalities.
