Common Causes of Head-on Crashes in West Palm Beach, FL
Head-on accidents are common at intersections and along divided roads. However, these types of car accidents may occur in any location.
Drivers have a duty of care to obey traffic laws and operate their vehicles safely. When a driver breaches that duty of care, their negligence can cause fatal crashes and catastrophic injury.
Common factors that lead to head-on collisions include:
- Distracted driving
- Aggressive driving
- Failing to yield the right of way
- Driving on the wrong side of the road
- Impaired driving, including drunk, drugged, and drowsy driving
- Improper lane changes
- Overcorrecting after running out of the road
- Swerving to miss an animal, pedestrian, or road debris
A tire blowout or other mechanical issue could also contribute to the cause of a head-on crash. Our legal team will carefully analyze the evidence from your crash to identify each factor that contributed to your collision. Those factors will enable us to identify the parties responsible for the collision.
