Knowing What To Do When Rear-End Collisions Occur
Any type of car accident may have devastating consequences. Some of the more common types of accidents — rear-end collisions and broadside crashes — often leave drivers and passengers suffering from serious injuries such as spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, closed-head injuries, neck and back injuries, broken bones and more. If you have been injured in a rear-end or t-bone crash that was the result of someone else’s negligence, we can help.

Responsibility In Rear-End Collisions
In nearly all rear-end cases, the individual who rear-ended the victim of the crash is the party responsible for the damages and injuries. Drivers are expected to maintain a safe distance from the car in front of them and when a rear-end crash occurs, this safe distance was obviously not being kept. Our firm will examine the entire accident situation to ensure that the negligent party is held responsible for the injuries that you have suffered. Compensation may be obtained for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Investigations In T-Bone (Broadside) Crashes
In some broadside crashes, it may take a thorough investigation to determine who was actually at fault for the accident. Many times, the assumption is that the person who broadsided the other vehicle is at fault. However, this is not always true. Our firm gets to the heart of the matter, standing up for our clients’ rights and taking action against the negligent party.
