Liability In Head-On Crashes
Head-on car accidents make up only 2% of all crashes but over 11% of fatalities. Most head-on accidents take place when one driver crosses over a double yellow line. According to the 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.”
Any person that is injured in a head-on car accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. A car accident attorney can work to get you the support that you need. Damages in a bodily injury claim may include money for lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering.
