The aftermath of any car accident can be stressful. However, few collisions have the repercussions that come with a front-end crash. Motorists involved in a head-on collision are especially vulnerable, as the force of two opposing cars colliding can be extreme.

If you were involved in a front-end crash, you might be dealing with long-term or permanent physical injuries. Additionally, your injuries could prevent you from returning to work. This can create a financial burden that is only worsened by substantial medical bills and other out-of-pocket expenses.

A seasoned injury attorney could review the facts of your accident during an initial consultation. At your consultation, an attorney might be able to evaluate your claim and assist you with pursuing damages. An Augusta front-end car accident lawyer might give you your best chance of holding the negligent driver accountable after a crash.

Injuries in a Head-On Collision

Due to the tremendous force that can occur in a front-end crash, the potential for serious bodily injuries is high. These injuries can require extensive rehabilitation, medical treatment, and follow-up care. Common injuries include:

  • Broken bones
  • Cuts and bruises
  • Burns
  • Brain injuries
  • Whiplash and other neck injuries
  • Internal bleeding
  • Tendon and ligament wounds

Modern vehicles have seen many advancements when it comes to absorbing the impact of a crash. While the front of a vehicle is typically the most reinforced, that does not prevent accidents from resulting in serious injuries. An August attorney could help a person injured in a front-end car accident seek fair compensation from the motorist that caused the crash.

Compensation in a Front-End Crash Lawsuit

Any Augusta attorney seeking to take on a front-end car accident lawsuit must first evaluate the damages of the claimant. Their injuries and monetary losses make up the basis of a personal injury claim.

Compensation in a head-on crash lawsuit falls into two primary categories: economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are identifiable due to their set monetary value. These losses are easily measurable using evidence like receipts, bills, and invoices. Some of the most common examples of monetary compensation include car repair expenses, hospital bills, and lost wages.

Non-economic damages are not as simple to measure. These damages are differentiated from economic damages due to their subjective nature. Without documentary evidence to establish their value, a jury must rely primarily on witness testimony to determine what these losses are worth. Some examples of non-economic damages include the loss of consortium, mental anguish, and loss of companionship.

Both of these types of damages exist to compensate an accident victim for their losses in a crash. That said, there is a third type of compensation that could be available that has nothing to do with an injured driver’s losses. Punitive damages exist to punish a defendant and deter them from egregious behavior. These damages are only available in a front-end crash for extremely reckless behavior like driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Contact an Augusta Front-End Car Accident Attorney Immediately

Living with the consequences of a front-end crash can be difficult. While monetary settlement cannot undo what happened to you, it can ease some of the stress and strain that follows an accident.

Skilled legal counsel could provide you with the advice and experience necessary to be successful in your case. To move forward with your claim, call an Augusta front-end car accident lawyer as soon as possible.
