Liability In Car Accidents
According to the FMCSA, “Fatigue, drinking alcohol, and speeding are major factors in motor vehicle crashes overall. Although their presence does not always result in a crash, these three factors, as well as other driver, vehicle, and environmental factors, can increase the risk that a crash will occur.” Head-on collisions tend to take place when one vehicle crosses over a double yellow line.
According to California Vehicle Code 21460, “If double parallel solid yellow lines are in place, a person driving a vehicle shall not drive to the left of the lines, except as permitted in this section.” Victims of head-on collisions are protected by a number of laws. They could potentially seek recourse through a bodily injury claim. A car accident attorney can examine all of the facts of your case and let you know what your options are.
