Head-on collisions have the distinction of being among the most dangerous types of car crashes.

When two vehicles collide while traveling in opposite directions, the force is magnified. The results can be devastating — head, neck and spine injuries, broken bones, paralysis or even death.

Where do head-on collisions usually occur?

Head-on collisions can happen anywhere, but they are more common in areas with sharp curves or narrow roads. One car might cross the center line and hit an oncoming vehicle.

They also frequently occur when one driver tries to pass another vehicle going in the same direction and misjudges the distance between them.

Head-on collisions are some of the most dangerous car accidents because of their force and severity, and it can result in serious injuries. Common head-on collision injuries include:

What is the typical settlement from a head-on crash in Missouri?

There is no cap to settlement amounts in Missouri for non-medical malpractice related personal injury claims. This means that the settlement you receive is entirely dependent on the circumstances of your head-on collision.

Settlements in head-on crashes typically include a combination of economic and non-economic damages. They include:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of consortium

In order to achieve the best possible outcome in head-on collision cases, it is important to have experienced legal representation. Insurance companies often try to settle head-on crash claims quickly and for less than what is deserved.
