What Caused This Head-On Car Accident?
It is unclear at this time what may have caused this head-on injury car accident. Investigators will have to determine what led to one of the vehicles to drift over or swerve into opposing lanes of traffic. According to California Vehicle Code Section 21651 (a): “Whenever a highway has been divided into two or more roadways by means of intermittent barriers or by means of a dividing section of not less than two feet in width, either unpaved or delineated by curbs, double-parallel lines, or other markings on the roadway, it is unlawful…to drive any vehicle over, upon, or across the dividing section.”
In such cases, the at-fault driver could be held liable for the injuries, damages and losses caused to other victims. Injured victims can seek compensation to cover medical expenses, loss of wages, cost of hospitalization, rehabilitation, pain and suffering, and other related damages. An experienced San Bernardino personal injury lawyer will be able to examine all aspects of the incident and ensure that the negligent parties are held accountable for their actions.
