Who is at fault in rear-end accidents?

Typically, in rear-end collisions, the rear vehicle is to blame and assumes liability to cover the damages. However, there are certain scenarios where the front driver is partially at fault. For example, if the vehicle in front of you stops abruptly for no reason and without any warning, then they could be to blame. There are also cases where a vehicle is at a complete stop at a traffic light and another vehicle hits them from behind causing them to hit the person in front of them.

Common Injuries Sustained in Rear-End Crashes

Rear-end collisions can result in a number of different injuries including whiplash, spinal cord injuries, soft tissue injuries, leg injuries and head injuries. If you have been harmed in a rear-end accident we can help you in recovering a fair settlement to cover any present and future costs.

Remember that injury symptoms may get worse over the course of a few days following the accident. Be sure to seek immediate medical attention and be sure to speak with a car accident lawyer before talking with any insurance adjustors. We want to ensure that your rights are protected and you receive the full amount of compensation that you are entitled to.
