Head-on collisions are among the most serious type of auto accidents that can occur in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. As an experienced personal injury and wrongful death attorney, I know that most times one vehicle crashes head-on into another, the negligent driver at fault is not fit to be behind the wheel.
One of the most common head-on accident scenarios is that an intoxicated motorist will get on the freeway and drive against oncoming traffic – it is only a matter of time until they smash straight into another vehicle. Other potential front-end accident scenarios include drivers who take their attention off the road, who fall asleep at the wheel, or who simply lose control of their vehicle for some other reason.

Hiring a DFW Injury and Death Lawyer After a Head-On Collision
Injuries sustained in a head-on car crash are likely to be extremely serious. When two cars hit each other at 60mph, the force exerted on both vehicles – and the bodies of the occupants inside those vehicles – is going to be extremely severe. It should come as no surprise then, that front-end wrecks account for approximately 50 percent of all auto accident passenger fatalities according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
According to the laws of physics, the occupants of the smaller vehicle are likely to suffer the most serious injuries when they are hit head-on by another, larger vehicle. As a Dallas-Fort Worth car accident attorney, I can certainly attest to the fact that when an 18-wheeler or semi-truck crashes into an SUV or smaller passenger car, it is the occupants of the passenger vehicle which usually suffer the most severe injuries.
