The compensation that you can receive after a head-on collision generally depends on the severity of the injuries, the financial damages involved, the strength of your evidence, your insurance company and that of the other driver, and the ability of your attorney to make the best case.
The amount of damages you can recover following a head-on collisions depends on several factors including:
Special damages render economic losses and include lost wages, lost earning capacity, medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, and property damage. As the amount of economic losses increases, so should the amount of the settlement. However, amounts awarded are lowered when there is shared fault for the accident.
Non-economic losses often equal 1.5 to 5 times special damages. As with special damages, the more permanent and severe the general damages, the higher the settlement.
