Head-on collisions are some of the most serious car wrecks, leading to catastrophic injuries and fatalities. When two vehicles traveling in opposite directions, even at relatively low speeds, the results are often devastating. Survivors may be left with life- altering injuries and disability. Victims usually suffer serious financial problems, not just from the mounting medical bills, but also from lost income and inability to return to work.
