How Much Are Head-On Collision Cases Worth?


According to statistics, head-on collisions make up only 2% of all crashes, but they account for more than 10% of driving fatalities. This goes to show just how dangerous head-on collisions are. Usually, those who survive head-on collisions are likely to be left with severe injuries. Some of the most common injuries in head-on collisions include neck injuries, head injuries, cuts and bruises, and spinal cord injuries. Injuries sustained in a head-on collision can leave a victim struggling with huge medical bills and unable to go to work. Injuries can leave a victim in a lot of pain and unable to do most of the things they could do before their accident. Because of this, it is only fair that victims recover compensation from negligent parties. But how much are head-on collision auto accident cases worth? Find out below.

How Much Is My Head-on Collision Case Worth?

Every head-on collision case is different. So, there’s no average settlement amount for head-on collision cases. It would be misleading to state a specific figure you can hope to recover in your head-on collision auto accident case. Usually, the value of a head-on collision case is dependent on several factors. After a head-on collision, the following factors, and many others, are usually very important;

  • fault
  • the type and extent of the victim’s injuries
  • whether the victim was disfigured or disabled from the accident
  • the victim’s age and occupation
  • whether the victim will ever go back to work in full capacity
  • whether the injuries will prevent the victim from doing things that they loved doing before their accident


When it comes to fault, the good news is that, in Florida, you can still recover compensation even if you were partially responsible for your head-on collision. This is because Florida follows the pure comparative negligence rule.

However, if it is determined that you were partially to blame for your head-on collision, the compensation you recover will be reduced by the percentage of responsibility you bear for your accident. For example, if it is determined that you bear 30% of the responsibility for your head-on collision, the compensation you recover will be reduced by 30%.

How an Attorney Can Help You Get the Best Settlement

Although it is possible to file a head-on collision auto accident case on your own and recover compensation, getting a fair payout for a head-collision-related personal injury claim can be tricky. Fortunately, an attorney can help you. An attorney can help you collect the evidence needed to support your case. For example, they can help you get the police report that was written after your accident. An attorney can help you gather witness testimonies. Also, an attorney can help you negotiate with the insurance company. Insurance companies are known to take advantage of victims, and an attorney can ensure the at-fault party’s insurance company does not take advantage of you.
