A head-on collision is one of the more devastating accidents anyone can face on roads and highways throughout Northern California. The primary reason serious injuries result from head-on collisions is the fact that the vehicles involved are traveling toward one another, making the force of impact the combined total of both vehicles.
For example, a Sacramento head-on collision may include Car A which is traveling at 40 miles per hour and Car B which is traveling at 50 miles per hour. Because the two vehicles are traveling towards each other, the force of impact could be as much as that of a car hitting a brick wall at 90 miles per hour.
These accidents can result in injuries that are life-threatening and require medical attention and care for the lifetime of the individual.
A number of different factors can influence a person’s injuries after a car accident. The speed of the vehicles involved, the position of the person in the vehicle, and the point of impact can all play a role. Head-on collisions tend to result in different types of injuries than rear-end collisions, although both types of accidents usually result in some kind of injury to the neck or back.
Injuries sustained from head on collisions can include:
- Brain Injury
- Head Injury
- Spinal Cord Injury, including Paralysis
- Broken Bones
