The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) estimates that the fatality rate in these crashes is almost 56 percent, which is far greater than other types of accidents. Although many things can cause a collision, poor road conditions or driver distraction are typically the main causes of head-on crashes. These impacts are known to result in life-changing injuries and damages. Head-on collisions account for around 10 percent of all traffic fatalities that happen on American roads each year, even though they account for fewer than 2 percent of all reported crashes nationally. If you or someone close to you is hurt in a sudden collision, you need to consult with a qualified lawyer to pursue a strong compensation claim.
