Rear-End Collision Attorney

A rear-end collision is one in which a car runs into the vehicle ahead of it. These accidents usually happen because the driver in the rear vehicle was not paying attention as traffic slowed or came to a stop. Unless the driver in front stopped for no reason, the car in the back is usually at fault.

Holding Insurance Companies Accountable

High-speed rear-end collisions often cause massive injuries or death, but even low-speed collisions can cause serious back, neck and head trauma. Unfortunately, unless your vehicle shows extensive damage from the collision, the insurance company may not believe that you suffered a serious injury.

Our legal team will work hard to ensure that the insurance company of the at-fault driver treats your injuries with the same seriousness you do. We will work with your doctor to ensure that you receive proper medical care. This is important not only for your physical recovery but also to document your injuries. Our experienced trial lawyers are not afraid to take insurance companies to court to ensure you recover enough compensation to meet your present and future needs.
