Collisions where two vehicles are traveling in opposite directions involve double the forces involved in a typical rear-end or side impact collision. This occurs because the physics involved causes both vehicles to abruptly change momentum. Each vehicle has a large amount of kinetic energy which is displaced directly into the front end of the opposing vehicle. Many modern vehicles are equipped with safety features to reduce the chance of injury or death with a head-on collision. Some of these safety features include: seat belts, head rests, air bags, crumple zones, and components which drop down instead of pushing directly into the occupant’s body.
One positive of head-on collisions is that they often leave quite a bit of physical evidence and that make the cases easer to prove. The property damage caused by a head-on collision can be quite sever and impactful when viewed by a jury. Head-on are one of the scarier crashes that people can be involved in. Police and expert accident reconstructionist will collect all of the available evidence to determine what happened, and who was the party at-fault for causing the crash. Some of the evidence that is often used by these professionals include: skid marks, witness statements, black boxes, and breaking time and distances.
A skilled trial attorney will present compelling evidence to the jury, including photographs, animations, and diagrams to articulate just how sever a crash was for their client. If the insurance company is contesting liability for the crash, it would be a smart move to hire an accident reconstructionist. A reconstructionist explain to the jury your theory of the crash and why your client is not at-fault.Contact a Car Accident Attorney in Boulder Colorado
