Why Do Uber & Lyft Vehicles Get Into Head-On Collisions?
Head-on collisions should not occur in the absence of negligence. This means that, typically, a head-on collision is at least one driver’s fault, and victims can recover compensation for their accident-related losses. Some of the more common causes of head-on collisions include:
- Drunk driving
- Distracted driving
- Driving on the wrong side of the road
- Aggressive driving
- Improper turns
- Driver fatigue
- Ignoring adverse weather conditions
It’s vital to keep in mind that head-on collisions can also be caused by parties other than drivers, such as vehicle or vehicle equipment manufactures. For this reason, you should always have your case reviewed by an experienced lawyer, even if the cause of the crash is unclear or you think it might have been your fault.
Head-On Collisions Can Cause Extremely Serious Injuries
Head-on crashes often involve tremendous forces that can leave victims with extremely severe injuries. This is true even when drivers and occupants are wearing their seatbelts and vehicles are equipped with all of the latest safety equipment. In many cases, people who are involved in serious head-on accidents sustain injuries that may affect them for years and require significant ongoing care. For this reason, it’s imperative that anyone injured in a head-on collision protect his or her rights by retaining an experienced Uber and Lyft accident lawyer as soon as possible. Some of the injuries that people can sustain in head-on collisions include:
- Facial fractures
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Crush injuries
- Traumatic amputations
