Head-On Accidents in New Jersey

Howell, NJ - Robert C. Johnson Killed in Head-On Collision on Rt 33

Head-on collisions most often happen when a vehicle travels over the centerline or median and crashes into an oncoming vehicle. A head-on crash can also happen when the driver of a vehicle intentionally or unintentionally enters a roadway from the wrong direction. 

There are myriad reasons that accidents like this occur, such as driving while intoxicated, distracted driving, defects in the roadway, passing on a two-lane road, unexpected lane changes due to disabled vehicles of construction zones, malfunctioning vehicles, and loss of control due to excessive speed. Head-on accidents on highways and interstates are particularly dangerous because of the high rate of speed at which the vehicles are traveling. 

If you or a family member was hurt or killed in a head-on collision, 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.
