One of the most common types of car accidents is a rear-end collision. These types of accidents can happen in a wide range of settings, including:

  • Stop-and-go traffic
  • At a stoplight or stop sign
  • Entering a busy road from a side street or parking lot
  • Backing onto a road
  • Approaching a tollbooth

These accidents can cause very serious injuries such as:

  • Whiplash
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Neck injury
  • Back injury
  • Shoulder injury
  • Ruptured disks with radiating pain

As many of these are soft-tissue injuries, insurance companies can be very determined in their efforts to minimize or outright deny a claim. But, these injuries are real and they are serious. Recovery can require extensive medical care. The cost of that care and time lost from work can create a difficult financial situation for anyone.

Securing the representation of a skilled and experienced attorney early on can help ensure that your legal rights are protected and that you are fully compensated for your losses.

Take Action Immediately

We encourage everyone who has been injured in a rear-end collision to take action to protect their claim for damages by:

  • Taking photos of the damage to their car (on the scene and at the repair shop)
  • Visit a doctor as soon as possible and report all symptoms
  • Contact an attorney as soon as practical
