Any way in which a vehicle is struck poses threats to the well-being of those riding inside, whether a car is struck from behind by a much larger vehicle or a car veers off of the road and hits a tree. However, Frankovitch, Anetakis, Simon, Decapio & Pearl, LLP knows how devastating head-on collisions are in many instances, and these wrecks have claimed a lot of lives in West Virginia. Head-on crashes are particularly devastating because the impact is often much more significant, especially when one vehicle is going over the speed limit or both vehicles are traveling at high speeds. In fact, even accidents within the speed limit and at relatively low speeds are sometimes disastrous when two cars crash head-on.
