What is a Front-End Collision?
A front-end collision is one of the least common types of car accidents, but it also has the highest rates of serious injuries and death. This type of accident occurs when the front-end of one vehicle collides with the front-end of another. In order for a front-end collision to happen, one driver must leave their lane and collide with a vehicle going the opposite direction, or enter the roadway going in the wrong direction. Front-end collisions happen more frequently at night and are more likely to involve drivers that are either under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or they involve a driver that has fallen asleep behind the wheel.
Injuries Caused by Front-End Collisions
Given the force and speed of two vehicles colliding into one another in a front-end collision, the injuries sustained in this type of accident are usually catastrophic. Some of the most common injuries reported after a front-end collision include the following:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Head and skull injuries
- Facial trauma
- Neck injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Broken bones
- Severe burns
- Lacerations and contusions
- Nerve damage
- Amputation injuries
- Crushing injuries
- Internal bleeding and internal injuries
If you or a loved one is involved in a front-end collision it is critical that you retain the services of an experienced car accident lawyer that understands the full value of your case.
Front-End Collision Compensation
The severity of most front-end collisions often results in significant damages for those injured by the crash. Compensation for front-end crashes includes coverage of all out of pocket expenses, known as economic damages. These include all present and future medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and the loss of future income and benefits. Noneconomic damages compensate a victim for their pain and suffering, emotional distress, disability, disfigurement, and loss of enjoyment of life.
Because of the higher rate of fatalities in front-end collisions, the family of a victim killed in this type of accident may also be able to collect compensation for wrongful death. Damages for wrongful death include compensation for any final medical bills, funeral and burial costs, the victim’s final pain and suffering, and for the family’s loss of love, support, guidance, and companionship.
