The Financial Impact of a Head-On Collision
A head-on collision can leave you with serious injuries that change your physical ability and impair your ability to function in personal and professional settings. When your injuries take this costly toll, they can make it impossible for you to return to work to support yourself and your family.
According to Revised Code of Washington (RCW) § 4.56.250, you are entitled to recover the current and future income you lose when you cannot return to work because of your injuries. You are also entitled to financial compensation for the following economic and noneconomic damages:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Property repair or replacement costs
- In-home medical or domestic services
- Pain and suffering and inconvenience
- Mental and emotional distress
- Physical disability or disfigurement
You are also entitled to compensation for the funeral and burial expenses if someone you love was fatally injured in a head-on collision. Review the full range of your accident and injury-related expenses with our team. We will carefully and strategically assess the value of your claim to make sure you receive all of the compensation you are entitled to.

Let Us Negotiate the Financial Settlement You Deserve
Negotiating a financial settlement means you will receive payment for your injuries from the at-fault driver or their insurance company without going to court. It also means you will absolve the at-fault driver of any further financial responsibility related to the accident. Because a financial settlement is permanent and binding, you will not receive any further compensation even if you uncover additional expenses.
You, not your lawyer, always have the final say to accept or reject each monetary offer you receive. Even though the decision is always yours, you should work closely with your lawyer to accurately value your claim and to ensure you do not inadvertently accept a settlement offer that is too small to fully cover the cost of the collision.
Time Is an Important Part of Your Claim for Financial Recovery
Your claim for financial compensation has a time limit that must be respected when filing your personal injury lawsuit. The time you have to file will not wait until you are physically recovered from your injuries. You must take the required steps immediately to ensure your right to compensation is not jeopardized.
According to RCW § 4.16.080, you generally have three years from the date of the accident to file your lawsuit. If you do not file your lawsuit on time, you will not be able to file it at all. If that happens, the at-fault driver will never have to pay your accident-related expenses and you will not receive the compensation that you deserve.
The sooner we are involved in your claim, the sooner our team can go to work on your personal injury lawsuit. We can ensure your lawsuit is complete, comprehensive, and filed in time to comply with Washington’s statute of limitations.
