Our thoughts are with the victims injured in this accident. We hope for the full recovery of all involved.
California is the most populated state in the nation. There are over 27 million registered vehicles in the state and it is one of the most congested and dangerous places to drive. Every day the main metropolitan areas, such as the Los Angeles region are flooded with traffic, causing long commutes, traffic jams, and accidents. Many of these accidents result in serious injury or death.
Head-on collisions are a common type of accident that occurs and often happens when a driver crosses over the center dividing line or when someone drives in the wrong direction on the road. Head-on collisions can be the most dangerous kind of crash, resulting in the most serious outcomes. When they occur on highways, due to the high speeds that vehicles travel at, the results are often catastrophic injuries or fatalities. As with other kinds of accidents, head-on collisions are most often caused by reckless driving. Reckless driving is the number one cause of accidents in California and includes texting while driving, speeding, or impaired driving.
Each driver on the road must drive cautiously and responsibly to minimize the chances of causing harm to another. Legally this is called a duty of care that the law imposes on each driver. When an accident happens, this legal duty of care has likely been breached and the at-fault party can be held liable for damages they’ve caused.
