What Kind of Compensation May Be Available in Georgia?
Because head on collisions almost always end in catastrophic injury or death, compensation for victims and surviving loved ones may be considerable. Depending on the circumstances and whether there are aggravating circumstances, an additional award of punitive damages may be recovered. Non-punitive, or compensatory awards, are set forth below:
Wrongful Death Cases
- Wrongful Death Damages - this is a sum that represents the full value of the life of the decedent, and has both economic (such as lost wages) and non-economic components (what enjoyment of life the decedent would have had if he/she had lived a normal life expectancy).
- Estate Damages (this is recoverable in wrongful death lawsuits) and may include:
- Pain and suffering damages from the time of injury through the time of death
- Punitive damages
- Funeral costs
- Medical Expenses prior to death
Personal Injury Cases
- Pain and suffering
- Punitive damages
- Medical Expenses, such as
- Emergency medical treatment
- Hospital and doctor bills - including compensation for anticipated future expenses
- Physical and/or Occupational Therapy
- Loss of wages and employment (loss of earnings and earning capacity)
- Property damage
What Causes Head-on Collisions?

- Drunk driving
- Drugged driving
- Texting and driving
- Inadequate rest resulting in a driver falling asleep at the wheel
- Distracted while driving
- Fleeing the authorities
- Speeding or driving recklessly
