Head-on collisions occur when an oncoming vehicle leaves their lane and crashes into a car headed in the opposite direction. In Miami, these types of car accidents most often happen when a motorist loses control of their vehicle, falls asleep at the wheel, is intoxicated, or is distracted. Head-on crashes can cause serious injuries, including fatalities, amputations, burn injuries, spinal cord injuries, and many other types of injuries. The force and impact of head-on collisions, especially at high speeds, is serious enough to cause fatal accidents and even secondary accidents.
What to do After a Car Accident
If you have been injured in a head-on collision, there are laws designed to protect you. If a driver was at fault in the accident, you can pursue a legal claim against them in order to get compensation for your injuries. Compensation can cover lost income, medical costs, property damage, and other expenses related to your accident. After a traffic accident in Miami, your expenses may be much larger than you realize. For example, if you've been in a serious car accident and have sustained a spinal cord injury in Miami, your medical costs in the first year alone may exceed six digits. Serious permanent injuries may require millions of dollars in medical and at-home care. To find out more about your rights and options, consult with a personal injury attorney in Miami.

Head-on Crashes have a Devastating Impact
Car accidents and resulting injuries can change your life in a second. A head-on collision can cost the life of a loved one or can leave you with permanent or serious injuries. Since most head-on collisions in Miami occur at full speed, these types of accidents can be more deadly than back-over accidents and many other types of traffic collisions. Head-on crashes on highways in the Miami area, especially, are likely to lead to fatalities and serious injuries due to the speed and force involved in the accident. These types of accidents may also involve multiple vehicles, since the impact of the crash can cause secondary accidents.
