Southaven Lawyers Protecting Clients’ Rights after a Head-on Collision
Serving injury victims throughout the state from offices in Southaven, Hernando, and Olive Branch
A head-on crash occurs when two vehicles traveling in opposite directions collide with one another. These are among the most dangerous, and often most deadly, types of auto accidents due to the tremendous amount of damage that can occur. When two vehicles moving even at acceptable speeds collide, it creates significant force that can cause catastrophic injuries and fatalities.

From offices in Southaven, Hernando and Olive Branch, the firm works hard every day to earn the trust clients place in them. The team has the experience and a thorough knowledge of the law, which they put to work every day on behalf of their loyal clients.
Common causes of head-on collisions
There are a number of reasons why two cars may collide head-on. In some cases, the accident is simply out of one person’s control; in others, it is the result of driver error. At Taylor Jones Taylor, the attorneys have experience helping Mississippi car accident victims whose head-on collisions resulted from:
- Drunk driving
- Distracted driving
- Wrong way entrance to the highway

- Driver fatigue
- Secondary crash in a multi-vehicle crash
Common injuries from head-on accidents
A head-on collision is often quite devastating, and it can result in significant injuries to passengers. While these types of collisions are not very common, they are the most likely to be fatal. If there are no fatalities, drivers and passengers in both cars may suffer from:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord injuries
- Fractured bones
