Being involved in a car accident is a scary and overwhelming experience.

Rear End Car Accident Injuries
Being rear ended takes a serious toll on your body. Your head and neck can sustain muscle injuries and broken bones due to the forces that are in effect during a rear end accident. One of the most common injuries in a rear end accident is a whiplash injury, sometimes called cervical neck strain or sprain. Seatbelts can also cause broken collarbones and other broken bones and bruising.
Liability in Rear End Crashes
In most cases, the liability for a rear-end collision rests with the person who rear ended the vehicle in front. This is because it is assumed that if the person had left enough distance between his or her car and the car in front, the crash would not have happened. Our firm can help you determine who is liable for your injuries and pursue compensation for the losses you have suffered.
Like all of the other personal injury cases that we handle, rear-end accident cases are handled on a "contingent fee" basis. This means that our firm does not get paid until we are successful in recovering financial compensation on your behalf.
