West Palm Beach Head-on Collision Accidents Attorney
Head-on collisions are one of the most frightening types of accidents. They occur when the front-end of two vehicles collide. These types of accidents can be extremely serious and cause many different types of injuries. If such a collision involves speeding, the consequences might be deadly. If you or a loved one was involved in a head-on collision accident, contact Mr. Quackenbush because successfully resolving cases is the hallmark of this West Palm Beach head-on collision accident lawyer.
Several different circumstances, road conditions, and driving behaviors can cause a head-on collision. Since these accidents typically involve two vehicles traveling at fast speeds, more people are killed in head-on collisions than any other type of accident. While head-on collisions can take place anywhere and to anyone, the most common causes are passing on a highway or two-lane road, drifting across the center line into traffic, snow, ice, and other weather conditions, failing to negotiate a curve properly, texting or using a cellphone while driving, drunk driving or driving while impaired and turning the wrong way down a one way road.
Head on car collisions can also be caused when someone falls asleep behind the wheel. It is very dangerous to drive while overtired, and accidents can easily result. Truck drivers, for instance, often work for long hours at a time. They may be overtired and can fall asleep at the wheel if they drive for too long. Truck drivers are usually expected to maintain “drive logs,” in which they keep track of the number of hours they are on the road as opposed to the time they are sleeping. They are normally only allowed to drive for a certain number of hours for each day.

The impact of a head-on vehicle accident is usually so severe, it is vital that the vehicles involved in the collision be built safely. It is said that vehicles must be built “crashworthy.” Vehicle Crashworthiness refers to the ability of a vehicle to protect its occupants in the occurrence of a collision. Crashworthiness protections are intended to reduce the risk of fire and injury and prevent expulsion from the vehicle. However, when these features fail, serious injury can take place, leading to the question of whether a vehicle was crashworthy. This West Palm Beach head-on collision crash lawyer has many years of experience in handling cases in which vehicles are confirmed to not be crashworthy.
In addition, vehicles these days must be designed and manufactured with airbags. In a head-on vehicle collision, airbags are very important. If airbags were not properly installed in your vehicle and the vehicle was involved in a head-on collision, then you may have a products liability case against the manufacturer of your vehicle if the lack of airbags contributed to your injuries. You may have a similar case if the vehicle was not correctly designed to be crashworthy.This South Florida Head-on Collision Crash/Wreck Law Firm Discusses Possible Injuries Caused by Head-on Collisions
