Car Accident Lawyers in Florida
Head-on car collisions are among the most serious of all kinds of motor vehicle accidents. Two vehicles that hit each other head on when both vehicles are traveling at high speed create a combined impact speed of more than 150 miles per hour. Both seat belts and air bags are safety mechanisms intended to lessen the potential of serious injury or death associated with head-on car collisions. Florida has had a seat belt law since 1986, but only since 2009 has Florida law given police officers the right to stop a vehicle if any occupant is not wearing a seat belt. The federal government has required car makers to install front air bags since 1999. Seat belts and air bags dramatically decrease the risk of fatality in head-on car collisions.
However, not every car has air bags, and even if a car has air bags and the occupants are wearing seat belts, serious injuries can result from a head-on car collision. If you or a family member has suffered serious injury as the result of a head-on car collision on a South Florida road, seek legal advice from an experienced Florida car accident lawyer to improve your chances of getting a full and fair settlement to cover the financial losses associated with a serious collision.
