Head on car accidents are usually some of the most dangerous types of car accidents due to the force that is put directly on the points of impact and the drivers/passengers of the cars. The speed of a head on crash generally leaves little room for damage and injury variables.
There can often many numerous reasons for head on car accidents. Some of the reasons include inattentiveness, lack of visibility, distracted driving, unsafe passing on two lanes, alcohol and drug impairment and drowsy drivers. Each car accident must be investigated by accident reconstructionist experts and accounting from eye-witnesses including drivers. Experts examine the wreckage as well as the physical terrain of the accident including skid marks and geographical impressions.
