Charlotte Head-on Collisions Lawyer
A head-on collision is one of the most dangerous types of auto accidents. When two cars are involved in a head-to-head crash, serious, and often fatal injuries occur. Tragically, head-on collisions account for only two percent of all accidents, yet they cause 10 percent of all car accident fatalities.
The Charlotte car accident lawyers at Auger & Auger understand the pain, confusion, and financial worries that clients experience in the days and weeks after their accident. You may have questions concerning medical treatment, lost income, medical bills, property damage, rental car costs, and more. Auger & Auger Accident and Injury Lawyers can help with all of your concerns.
Causes of Head-On Collisions
A head-on collision can occur for any number of reasons, including:
- When a driver veers left of a double yellow line, or “left of center”
- Drunk driving
- Failure to maintain lane control in an intersection
- Sudden mechanical failure or tire blow out
- Swerving to avoid an animal or object
- Driver falling asleep at the wheel
- Road conditions
- Texting while driving
Driver distraction is a leading cause of serious accidents, and the percent of head-on collisions has increased significantly since the advent of smartphones. Drivers are not only talking, but reading content, watching movies, and typing messages.
Distracted driving has become so common, police officers have told our legal team that one of the first items that they look for in the at-fault driver’s car is a cell phone.
On occasion, an officer will find a phone with a partially typed message the at-fault driver was entering just before the crash. Proof of distraction like this can make it significantly easier for crash victims to take legal action and prove negligence after a head-on collision.
