Head-On and Rear-End Collisions
An Ohio Head-On Or Rear-End Collision Means Someone Was At Fault
Columbus, Ohio, Car Crash Lawyers
Head-on collisions and rear-end accidents can often result in serious injuries, even fatality. Head-on accidents usually leave drivers and passengers with severe and permanent injuries. If you were run into from behind or suffered severe or catastrophic injury from a side impact crash, it usually means the other driver was impaired or distracted by something resulting in negligence.
These accidents can occur on Ohio’s busy State Routes, Interstates, back roads or right in your neighborhood. Many times drivers cross the center line (left of center) due to fatigue, drug or alcohol abuse, or because they were looking down to read a map or to use their cellphone. These types of distractions also contribute to rear-end impacts where someone runs into you while you are stopped at a red light, stop sign or even while you are parked. Side impact or “T-Bone” accidents are usually caused by a driver who “didn’t see you” or someone who wasn’t paying attention to traffic control devices and signs such as running a red light or running a stop sign. Sometimes it is as simple as a failure to yield.
