Head-on collisions are some of the deadliest accidents on Utah roadways. When two cars traveling in opposite directions collide, each person in either vehicle is hit with the combined force of both vehicles. For this reason, although head-on collisions take place less frequently than other types of crashes, they are more likely to result in severe injury and death.
Head-on collisions are almost always caused by driver negligence. If you were injured or your loved one was killed in a car accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses.

A head-on collision typically happens when a car, truck, or motorcycle veers over the centerline and hits an oncoming motorist. In other situations, head-on collisions occur because a driver entered a freeway or other roadway while driving in the wrong direction.
Every driver has a legal duty of care to obey the rules of the road and watch out for the safety of those around. If a motorist fails to uphold this duty and a collision is the result, he or she should be held liable for the damage caused.

Even if it seems obvious who was at fault for the head-on collision, you cannot assume that fair compensation is automatic and easy to recover.
