Of all traffic accidents, head-on collisions are among the most serious. When vehicles collide head to head, the driver and front seat passenger are most likely to sustain catastrophic injuries. Back seat passengers may also experience serious trauma. Any occupant of a vehicle involved in a head-on crash may suffer from whiplash, crush injuries, spinal cord trauma, traumatic brain injury, broken bones, and even death. This leads to astronomical medical bills and ongoing financial difficulties caused by the need for continued care and the inability to work for an extended period.

Understanding the Severity of Head-On Collisions
The reason head-on collisions are so serious is the force of impact involved. When two vehicles are traveling toward one another and they collide, the impact will be equivalent to the combined force of both vehicles. A vehicle traveling at 30 mph and another traveling at 35 mph, colliding head to head, would produce a force of impact equivalent to that of a vehicle hitting a brick wall at 65 mph.
In taking on head-on collision claims, our Kansas City car accident attorneys will consider all relevant details, which may influence the value of your claim and who is to blame:
- Which traffic laws were violated?
- Was the other driver distracted, fatigued, or under the influence of alcohol/drugs?
- Was your vehicle reasonably crashworthy?
- Did your seatbelt and airbag function properly?
- What circumstances led to the collision?
- Are there witnesses and/or physical evidence to corroborate your story?
Every single detail of your case must be investigated and analyzed to ensure your lawyer presents clear, compelling evidence of the at-fault party’s liability and the full worth of your case. As attorneys who are also medical doctors, and with advanced accident reconstruction training, we at Cullan & Cullan are in an extremely advantageous position to properly present your case.
