Philadelphia Head On Car Accident
There are few real-life events which are as frightening as a Head-On Collision. One of the reasons for fear which accompanies them is that, right before a head-on collision, you know that you are going to be in an accident, and there is no way to avoid it, short of jumping out of your moving car. The injuries which innocent victims receive from head-on collisions are some of the most serious. Additionally, head-on collisions can test the crash worthiness of the vehicles which crashed into each other. So, if your vehicle does not crash well, and thereby causes you injury, you should preserve the car, and then seek the assistance of an attorney immediately, no matter who is at fault. Under these circumstances, it does not matter who is at fault for the collision if your car did not crash properly.
The velocity of the impact doubles during a head-on collision, resulting in the drivers and passengers inside each vehicle to be subject to violent physical forces. Not only can they be jostled by the sheer force of the crash, but they also face the dangers of flying glass from the windshields and twisted metal as the front end of the car crumples and collapses. Even when wearing seat belts and the protection of airbags, head-on collisions at highway speeds result in Catastrophic Injuries or Death. These types of collisions cause 10 percent of all car accident fatalities.
Under normal conditions, Head-on Collisions should not happen. A few of the reasons why head-on collisions occur include texting, talking on the phone, looking away from the road, falling asleep, and severe weather conditions making it difficult to see. Sometimes, the nature of the road itself makes it likely for a Head-on Collision to occur. In these cases, a claim should be made against the Commonwealth agency or State agency for improper roadway construction and design.
When riding in a car, whether as the driver or passenger, the devastation which can occur from a Head-on Collision can alter a family’s life forever, so make sure that, at the very minimum, you buckle up. Using your seatbelt is the best way to help minimize serious injuries, and it is the law.
