Front-Impact Collisions

Front-impact collisions often occur on the highway and late at night. A driver that has
been on the road for too long can drift out of his side of the road and directly into oncoming
traffic. This is particularly dangerous because so many large 18-wheelers and
tractor trailers are also on the road. These accidents can be deadly. While driver fatigue
is quite often the cause of such accidents, it is also common for drugs and alcohol to play
a role.

If the occupants of the cars are wearing seat belts, then it is usually the legs and back that
will suffer the greatest injury. Injuries may include:

  • Whiplash
  • Collapsed lungs
  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paraplegia, quadriplegia, or paralysis

In those cases where occupants are not wearing their seat belts, the impact of an
individual’s head colliding with the steering wheel or the windshield can be fatal.

Serious car accidents can leave you with physical as well as emotional injuries, both of
which take time to resolve. Because there are so many aspects to your injury and
recovery, it is often difficult to consider and resolve everything for yourself. Contact our
