Head-on fatalities plague Pennsylvania roads


A car accident is rarely a good thing. However, when vehicles crash into each other head-on, the consequences are often tragic. What's worse, head-on collisions are rarely accidents that could not otherwise have been avoided. There is almost always some external factor that contributes such crashes, which in the event of a fatality, can result in a wrongful death suit.


Unfortunately, such accidents are also all too common. In recent days, for example, two fatal, head-on crashes occurred on the same stretch of Pennsylvania Route 316 in the same week. In both instances, northbound drivers crossed into the southbound lane of the highway. Investigations are still pending, but any number of factors could have contributed to such accidents, as they rarely occur without some external exigency.

Most often, such accidents are associated with drunk drivers who cross lanes or enter the wrong way onto divided highways. More often these days, distracted driving also contributes to head-on collisions. Medical issues, falling asleep at the wheel, or impairment from drug use can also factor in to such fatal crashes. Ultimately, someone is almost always at fault when a head-on accident has occurred.

If someone has been injured or their loved one has been killed in a head-on collision, they should seek the immediate advice of a lawyer experienced in personal injury and wrongful death cases. A seasoned attorney, such as those at the Law Firm of Leisawitz Heller, can explain the appropriate course of action and help to get victims and their families the compensation they deserve.
