Rear End Collision Accident Lawyer
Rear-end collisions often cause severe injuries and can be connected to whiplash. This injury occurs when the head and neck are abruptly extended and then snapped back in a jerking motion. Rear-end accidents can also be deadly for the car driver and car passengers. Injury victims of a rear-end car accident caused by another driver may suffer large medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering. In 2007, the NHTSA released a report of the common causes of a rear-end crashes and near-crashes. The report stated that about 87 percent of rear-end accidents involve some form distracted driving on the part of the at-fault driver. For example, use of a cell phone while driving was one of the top distracted-driving activities involved in these accidents.
After a rear end accident occurs, insurance companies might try to shift the blame and try to make it look like it is your fault. For this reason it is important to that you do know give a statement to any insurance company representative before speaking with a personal injury lawyer about the liability of your case. Insurance companies work very hard to use your words against you. They may try to argue that the circumstances were one where you deliberately stopped or decelerates for no reason solely to cause the accident. Essentially, that you purposely caused the person driving behind you to not be able to stop in time. . By hiring a rear end collision accident attorney the insurance company will have to deal with your lawyer and not you. This helps prevent saying something that the insurance company may try to twist and use against you. It is best to not speak to an insurance company representative until you fully understand your legal rights and options.
