Head-On Collisions Can Lead to Serious, Life-Altering Injuries
The causes of head-on collisions can vary widely. They may include distracted driving, speeding, reckless driving, fatigue or falling asleep, and drunk driving, or other types of impaired driving.
Head-on collisions can be among the most dangerous accidents. Injuries may include:
- Head injuries and traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Back and neck injuries, including paralysis
- Chest injuries
- Internal injuries, often in the abdomen
- Injuries to the arms and legs
- Facial cuts and abrasions from airbags
- Burns and other injuries
Injuries in a head-on collision may be life-altering, require extensive rehabilitation and ongoing care, or limit your mobility or even your ability to live independently. All too often, the victims sustain fatal injuries.
According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the fatality rate for victims in a frontal impact accident in 2018 was 56 percent. This includes 57 percent for the occupants of cars and pick-ups and 55 percent for those in SUVs.

Time Limits on Filing a Tampa Head-On Collision Lawsuit
Florida imposes a statute of limitations, or legal time limit, on many types of lawsuits. If you allow the statute of limitations to expire without taking action in your Tampa head-on collision case, you could lose your right to hold the responsible driver liable via a lawsuit.
Under Florida Statute 95.11, the time limit to hold someone accountable for their negligence in a personal injury lawsuit is typically four years from the date of the accident. The general limit for wrongful death lawsuits in Florida is just two years.
