What Type of Damages Can I Recover in a Head-On Collision Lawsuit?

Head-on collision lawsuits can often trigger significant losses for the victim, and consequently, they can bring compensation for economic and non-economic damages, from medical bills, rehabilitation therapy, property damage, lost wages and loss of earning ability, to pain and suffering and mental anguish. In some cases, the defendant might have to pay for punitive damages as well.

Personal injury lawsuits are civil litigations designed to bring the plaintiff to the same financial estate he or she enjoyed prior to the accident. Therefore, these lawsuits can bring compensation for both economic and non-economic damages such as:

  • Medical bills
  • Long term medical care and rehabilitation therapy
  • Lost wages or lost earning ability
  • Property damages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish and anxiety

Besides these compensatory damages, plaintiffs might also receive punitive damages, designed to punish the defendant for his negligent behavior and to prevent him from acting in the same manner in the future.
