Head-on collisions almost always result in serious, catastrophic injuries or wrongful death to at least one of the drivers involved. The reason for this is the combined velocity of the vehicles. When two vehicles smash directly into each other, the total velocity of the impact is doubled; so if both cars driving 65 mph collide head on, it is like one car hitting a wall at 130 mph.

The Importance of Establishing Fault ∙ Contributory Negligence
Regardless of the specific types of injuries, the most challenging and important aspect of a head-on collision case in North Carolina involves establishing fault. With North Carolina's contributory negligence — which means that a plaintiff who is found to be even 1 percent at fault is completely barred from recovery — it is essential to establish that the defendant is completely responsible for the accident.
This is a challenge, however, because most head-on collision cases involve death or serious injuries that make it impossible for the parties to remember the details accurately.
Our lawyers are dedicated to and experienced with investigating our clients' cases. We will look through every aspect of your case to establish fault and liability, doing everything possible to help you obtain the compensation you deserve in your case.
