New Haven Head-On Collisions

A speeding car approaches on a head-on collision trajectory

The crash dynamics of head-on collisions are unforgiving, often leading to severe brain and spinal cord injuries and even death. The New Haven personal injury attorneys at Jacobs & Jacobs have extensive experience handling car accident cases involving head-on collisions. Our law firm is equipped to help you obtain maximum compensation for the losses you have suffered due to another driver’s negligence.

Many head-on accidents are the result of drunk driving, distracted driving and other forms of driver negligence. Careless and negligent drivers can cause head-on collisions by:

  • Veering across highway medians
  • Crossing the center line
  • Driving the wrong way on a one-way street
  • Driving the wrong way on an exit or entrance ramp
  • Failing to heed traffic lights
  • Driving too fast in unsafe conditions (such as snow and ice)

How Common Are Head-On Collisions?

Fortunately for drivers in New Haven and across the country, head-on collisions are extremely rare. Statistics estimate that just 2% of all car crashes are head-on collisions. These car accidents are more common in rural areas, making up 13% of all rural fatal crashes. While they are relatively uncommon, particularly in urban areas, head-on crashes have the potential to cause catastrophic injuries or even death. The speed of the vehicles involved, location of the crash, and proximity to first responders may play a role in the severity of the head-on collision in New Haven. Our wrongful death attorneys in Milford are prepared to represent accident victims with compassion and fierce advocacy.
