Head-On Accidents in New Jersey
Head-on accidents most often happen when a vehicle crosses over the median or centerline and collides with an oncoming vehicle. A head-on collision can also occur when the driver of a vehicle deliberately or accidentally enters a street from the wrong direction.
There are many reasons that accidents like this happen, such as driving under the influence, distracted driving, roadway defects, passing on a two-lane road, sudden lane changes due to disabled vehicles in construction zones, vehicle malfunctions, and loss of control due to excessive speed. Head-on crashes on interstates are especially dangerous due to the high rate of speed at which the vehicles are traveling.
If you or a member of your family was hurt or killed in a head-on accident, it is important to hire an attorney who routinely litigates head-on car accident cases and is willing to explore all potential avenues for recovery.
