Head-On Collisions Are Often Fatal - By an Ottawa Car Accident Lawyer

Head-on motor vehicle crashes often result in catastrophic or fatal injuries, especially if the cars or trucks are traveling at high rates of speed. There have been several head-on collisions on Ontario roadways last week, and some of them were in Ottawa.

Earlier this week, two men sustained serious injuries after a head-on crash on River Road, south of Manotick. The drivers from each of the vehicles were transported to the hospital in serious condition.

Earlier in the month, an elderly woman was killed in a head-on collision. Two vehicles traveling in the opposite direction collided with each other on Albion Road. Both vehicles were traveling at high speeds and ended up in a ditch after the crash. Emergency personnel had to extricate the drivers/passenger from their vehicles. An elderly female driver in one vehicle died at the scene of the accident. Her passenger, another elderly woman, suffered serious injuries and was transported to Ottawa Hospital. The elderly male driver in the second vehicle sustained serious traumatic injuries and was also transported to the hospital.

Injured victims may file accident benefits claims with their own auto insurance companies. Pursuant to Ontario law, the injured insured drivers/passengers' own auto insurance companies provide accident benefits after auto accidents. Such benefits include, but are not limited to, medical and rehabilitation care benefits, income replacement benefits and attendant care benefits.

In addition, injured victims of head-on collisions in Ottawa have legal rights. They may be able to file tort claims against at-fault drivers. Drivers may cause head-on accidents by engaging in the following dangerous driving behaviours:

All of these above behaviours can cause drivers to cross over to oncoming traffic lanes.

Injured victims may be able to recover financial compensation for the following:
