“They explained to me everything about my accident and what they were going to do – point by point what was going on with my body, and said they would do everything they can for me to feel back to normal.”
While head-on collisions are rare, they do happen, bringing with them severe injuries and property damage as well as extreme pain and suffering. A head-on collision, also known as a frontal crash, is as it sounds, when two vehicles collide while traveling in opposite directions.
Regardless of the vehicles involved, these front end collisions occur when one driver crosses the road into oncoming traffic, or a driver is traveling the wrong way in traffic. Though head-on collisions don’t happen frequently, when they do, the results can be catastrophic, making it important to know how fault is determined.
In a head-on collision, determining fault is similar to determining fault in other vehicle accidents – using the negligence factor. Negligence is a driver’s failure to take care in avoiding injury to others. In a head-on collision, negligence can come in the form of a:
If a driver is found acting thusly, the fault is usually easy to determine and falls on the driver who was traveling in the wrong direction.
Head-on crashes result from traveling the wrong direction on a roadway, often after crossing the center line. Speeding is often a factor as is distracted driving as a result of texting, talking on the phone, or app use. Head-on collisions can also be caused by drivers:
Even though the fault is often placed on the driver traveling the wrong way, this is not always the result. There are scenarios in which another crash forces vehicles into oncoming traffic, leaving the driver who caused the original crash at fault. Medical emergencies and vehicle malfunctions (blown tire, steering defect, etc.) can result in a head-on collision.
If you are involved in a head-on collision, you should immediately call the authorities for medical assistance and to file a report. Head-on crashes nearly always result in injuries, often severe. Common injuries in head-on collisions include:

Once diagnosed, your chiropractor will develop a customized care plan which may include physical therapy, massage, and pain management to alleviate your pain, and allow you to return to full health and strength.
