Phoenix Head-On Truck Collision Lawyers
Protecting Your Legal Rights After a Head-on Crash
Head-on collisions are the deadliest of all crashes, particularly when vehicles collide while travelling at high speeds. The brutal force of impact when two heavy, moving vehicles collide head-on often results in fatal or catastrophic injuries. When one of those vehicles is a semi tractor-trailer, a head-on collision can have terrible consequences for the occupants of the other vehicle, as well as their families.

How Do Head-On Truck Accidents Occur?
Many head-on collisions are the direct result of truck driver negligence, and when the driver causing the accident is operating a fully loaded 18-wheeler, the consequences are often deadly. Truck drivers can cause head-on collisions with other vehicles by the following dangerous driving behaviors:
- Falling asleep at the wheel and drifting into oncoming traffic
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Passing improperly on a two-lane highway
- Traveling the wrong direction on a one-way roadway
- Driving distractedly and crossing the center line
- Speeding around a curve
- Texting while driving and swerving into an oncoming lane
When two vehicles collide head-on, there is nothing to absorb the incredible force of impact. When one of those vehicles has the mass and momentum of a large commercial truck hauling a heavy load, occupants of the other vehicle have little chance of surviving the accident without serious or fatal injuries.
AZ Truck Accident Statistics
The Arizona Department of Transportation (DOT) reports 1,684 head-on crashes on state roadways in 2015. Among all head-on collisions that year, 794 caused injury to vehicle occupants. 61 of these head on collisions resulted in fatal injuries to an innocent person.
