Car accident head injury compensation FAQs

How much compensation can I receive for a car accident head injury?

  • The amount of compensation varies depending on the injury’s severity, its impact on your life, and the specific circumstances of your case.

What if I was partially at fault for the car accident?

  • Florida follows a “comparative negligence” rule, meaning you may still recover compensation even if partially at fault, but your award will be reduced by your percentage of responsibility. Unfortunately, in 2023, Florida lawmakers made sweeping changes to many tort laws. These changes included comparative negligence. Therefore, it is important to consult with an expert car accident injury attorney to learn how these changes could affect your claim.

Should I accept a quick settlement offer from the insurance company?

  • It’s wise to consult with an attorney before accepting any settlement. Early offers often undervalue the long-term consequences of a head injury.
