Liability For North Syracuse Car Accidents

Head-on collisions are among the most dangerous types of collisions that a person can be involved in. Head-on crashes account for around 2% of all crashes. However, they account for over 11% of all traffic fatalities. The vast majority of head-on collisions are due to some amount of human error. There are a number of factors that could contribute to a head-on collision.

  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Inclement weather
  • Driver fatigue

Every driver has a legal obligation to exercise due care in order to avoid collisions. There is a rebuttable presumption of negligence on the part of any driver who crosses into opposing lanes of traffic and hits another vehicle. Any person who is injured due to the negligence of another driver may have legal recourse through a civil claim. A personal injury attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
