Injuries Caused By Head-On Collisions

When one hears the phrase, "head-on collision" it conjures up ghastly images. They are truly the most serious type of car accident a person can be involved in and they account for more deaths than any other type of car accident. Although technology has improved vehicles and reduced the number of deaths from motor vehicle accidents, head-on collisions can be catastrophic to the injured party physically, emotionally and financially.

The types of injuries that can result from a head-on collision include:

  • Head injuries including concussions and lacerations
  • Neck, back and spinal cord injuries including dislocations and fractures
  • Injury to the soft tissue and bones of the face
  • Soft tissue injuries to the body, such as lungs, spleen etc
  • Bone injuries to the arms, legs, feet and hands

Any of these types of injuries can result in permanent physical damage, paralysis and even death. Also, the healing time for any of these injuries can be extensive.
