Head On Collision Accidents
Head on collisions are fairly self explanatory, as they are when the front end, or head, of one vehicle collides with the front end (head) of another vehicle. These kinds of accidents are fairly common, especially at intersections or road where lane divisions and marks are difficult to see. Because these typically happen when both vehicles are moving in opposite directions at decent speeds, they can be extremely catastrophic. Head on collisions often leave those involved with severe injuries that can alter their lives, and sometimes can even be deadly. If you have been injured in a head on collision, you should contact a Las Vegas car accident attorney right away.
Injuries From a Head On Collision Accident
The potential for severe injuries in head on collisions is high. Common injuries that occur in these kinds of accidents include:
Whiplash is an injury that occurs due to forceful, back-and-forth movement of the neck that can leave lasting complications. Whiplash can cause stiffness in your neck, limiting mobility.
Neck injuries can be even more severe than whiplash. Head on collisions can cause you to fracture your neck upon collision. Injuring vertebrae can be catastrophic fractures that can take years to heal.
Abdominal injuries are common in any kind of car accidents. The sudden jerking against the seat belt or slamming your body against the door and center console can cause bruising and internal injuries. In some cases, intestinal injuries from car accidents can go unnoticed and untreated.
Spinal injuries occur when you damage any of the vertebrae in your body. These injuries can vary from slight discomfort to paralysis.
Head and brain trauma can result from a blow or jolt to the head, often the steering wheel or door. These injuries can leave severe damage and should be treated immediately.
Foot and Leg injuries
It is also quite common to injury your foot and/or leg in head on collisions, especially if the force of the accident causes the front end of the car to crumble up, impeding on inside space for passengers.
