Did Your Car Take A Rear-End Hit Because Of Someone Else's Negligence?

Sometimes, it is easy to tell what happened at the scene of an accident. However, on other occasions, commotion, disorder, and confusion take over. After all, car crashes are pretty hectic, and they leave the heads of those involved swirling. Meanwhile, when it comes to particular kinds of collisions, let's say of the rear-end variety, the driver who caused the crash is usually held liable for the damages.

Things don't always work out that way, though. After lawyering up, the defendant gains the professional representation they need to discredit the claim. The attorney will pull out all of the stops to make it look as if their client did nothing wrong. They can even go so far as to twist and distort the truth, making it appear as if the defendant is entirely to blame.

Neither plaintiff legal teams nor insurance companies have the best interests of victims in mind. Instead, they are only worried about a couple of things: their clients and the smallest amount of compensation possible, if any. So if another driver slams into the rear of your car, do yourself a favor and contact our office for a free case evaluation. Our team will fight tooth and nail on your behalf to recover the compensation you deserve.

What Are Used To Build A Strong Personal Injury Case?


Every crash is different, so our attorneys treat each case as such. In doing so, we are able to determine which pieces of evidence will hold the most water in a court of law. Some of the common sources of information that lawyers use to prove fault and reveal what really happened during the events include:

• Witness Statements
• Police Reports
• Surveillance Camera Footage
• Driver Histories
• Cellular Phone Records

What Is Considered Negligent Driving?


Drivers can be negligent in many ways while they are behind the steering wheel of their car. For example, if a motorist has their eyes glued to a smartphone, a wreck could occur in the blink of an eye. Therefore, texting or talking on the phone while driving is a negligent act.

Additionally, let's say that a person chooses to ignore posted speed limit signs. They stomp the gas pedal to the floor and passes everyone else on the highway like they are sitting still. One wrong move is all it takes for catastrophe to strike. The speeding car could hit a wet spot and veer out of control, smashing into the side, front, or rear of another vehicle. Speeding is another form of negligence.

Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is a big form of negligence too. As anyone can see, the list of negligent acts can go on and on and on, so we will now move on to the next topic at hand.

Don't Become Stuck Between A Rock And A Hard Place Financially


Rear-end, T-bone, head-on, and other types of collisions tend to leave vehicle occupants hurt and in need of medical attention. They have to pay for medications, hospital stays, surgeries, physical therapy, and more. Of course, most people must take time off of work to recover. In most cases, that means victims do not have a steady flow of income funneling into their banks. Many involved in accidents often have to choose between things like getting their medications and paying their monthly electricity bills.
