Berks County Head On Collision Lawyer
Head-on collisions are often the most serious types of collisions. Because impact is often made at higher speeds than rear-end collisions, head-on accidents often cause large amounts of property damage and physical injury. Depending on the size and weight of the vehicles involved in the collision, our Philadelphia car accident attorneys see a range in the injuries and property damage our clients suffer. Property damages can range from minor to total and injuries can be slight to severe. Unfortunately, many fatalities are the sad result of head-on collisions.
The head-on accident occurs when the front bumper of one car makes contact with the front bumper of another car or with a stationary object like a tree or pole. Often, this happens when distracted drivers drift into the wrong lane on a two-way highway, fall asleep at the wheel or drive the wrong way down a one-way street. These distracted drivers often dispute liability, so in Pennsylvania, retaining a car accident lawyer is often necessary to assist in proving liability.
Most cars are designed to crumple when they are hit from the front, and this can help to absorb some of the impact. When two vehicles collide front-end to front-end, both vehicles can absorb some of the shock, somewhat protecting the passengers inside. When a vehicle collides with a stationary object, however, the object does not crush down, so the vehicle absorbs all of the impact. As a result, accidents involving a vehicle and a stationary object cause the most fatalities.
Victims of head-on collisions can seek damages against the other driver only when the plaintiff can prove that the defendant was negligent. This means that, under law in Berks County, car accident attorneys and their clients assume the responsibility of proving negligence on the part of the defendant.
