Why Are Head-On Collisions More Dangerous?
Any car accident can turn fatal in an instant. But why are head-on collisions often more dangerous and even deadlier than other accidents?
You may have been injured in a head-on collision yourself, and you may still reel from the effects of your injuries. How could they be so serious? Below are just a few ways in which head-on collisions are especially dangerous, as well as how a Milwaukee car accident lawyer can help you when you’re involved in one of these devastating accidents.
What Makes Head-On Impacts Dangerous?
A head-on collision is so dangerous because of the level of force put on you by the impact. In other car accidents, force from the impact is put on you, but you may be going a similar direction, so the force isn’t as severe.
Being hit head-on exerts force on you similar to hitting a brick wall.
That means the force on you is doubled by this type of impact. Even if you’re only traveling at 20 mph, for example, you may experience the same impact you would if you were traveling 40 mph.
Common Injuries in Head-On Collisions
Unfortunately, the level of force involved in a head-on collision means your injuries may be severe. That level of force on the body can lead to dangerous injuries that commonly require immediate attention.
For example, the impact may cause bruising and bleeding on the brain, also called a traumatic brain injury. These injuries impact your cognitive function, which may hurt your ability to remember, focus, and speak. You may even lose your fine motor skills because of these injuries.
Damage to the spinal cord can also have devastating effects. Your spinal cord sends signals from the brain to the rest of the body. That means you may lose the ability to feel and move below the point of the injury.
How a Car Accident Lawyer Can Help
You don’t have to deal with the fallout of the accident alone. Your car accident lawyer can guide you to the full compensation you’re due for every way the incident has negatively impacted your life.
Your lawyer can even represent you in the court. You may not have the tools and resources a lawyer can provide, and you may not have experience in the courtroom to help you make the most of your claim.
If you’re struck by another driver, whether they were distracted, drowsy, drunk, or just careless, your lawyer can help you seek compensation. Allow yourself to focus on your health and your physical recovery.
