There are various types of car accidents that tend to typically lead to serious, if not life-threatening, injuries.  Among these types of vehicle accidents that frequently cause serious harm are “head-on collisions.”  These crashes typically cause vehicle occupants to be subject to a very high degree of force, and these great forces cause a substantial degree of physical trauma.  Various aspects of “head-on collisions” are further discussed on the “‘Head-On Collisions’ In Cook County” page.

“Head-on collisions” are among the types of crashes that typically result in serious injuries, and in some cases the injuries are life-threatening in nature.  Some of these accidents lead to fatalities.

Many “head-on crashes” have occurred in the Chicago area, and some have happened recently.  While the reason for these loss of control accidents vary, some are caused by distracted driving, others are caused by weather conditions (such as icy conditions), while still others are caused by the driver experiencing a loss of consciousness due to a medical condition.  Other loss of control accidents can be caused by mechanical failures.

Among the types of crashes that typically cause serious accident injuries, as well as fatalities, is the “head-on collision.”  In most instances these crashes occur after one vehicle “crosses the center line” and collides with an oncoming vehicle.

Due to the strong physical forces involved in such a frontal collision, as well as vehicle occupants being subject to highly unnatural forces, a broad range of injuries can result.  As seen in many Chicago-area accidents involving “head-on crashes” it is common for such injuries to lead to fatalities.
