Head-On Accidents in Arizona

In Arizona, someone who is injured in a car accident for which they are not at fault is entitled to pursue economic recovery for their losses from the liable driver. Being awarded full compensation, however, will require you to provide compelling evidence of their negligence. 

The leading sources of head-on collisions in Arizona include:

  • Drivers under the influence
  • Excessive speed
  • Drivers who are distracted
  • Drowsy drivers
  • Driver miscalculation
  • Vehicle defects/Defective parts
  • Improper maintenance
