Dangers Of Rear-End Collisions
A rear-end collision is a motor vehicle accident in which one vehicle crashes into the vehicle in front of it. More often than not, these accidents are caused by negligent drivers who are tailgating or otherwise failing to maintain a safe following distance. Usually, the vehicle in front suddenly slows down or stops, and the car behind it does not have time to react, causing a rear-end accident.
At Lieberman, Tamulonis & Hobbs, our attorneys pursue justice and full compensation for victims of car accidents, motorcycle accidents and truck accidents in Schuylkill County and throughout Pennsylvania’s Coal Region. Since 1971, our firm has obtained successful results for clients injured in rear-end accidents.
An Experienced Lawyer Is Always Important
Many victims of rear-end accidents experience:
- Neck injuries
- Back injuries
Children often suffer the worst injuries in rear-end collisions because they are usually seated in the back of the vehicle. If you have been involved in a rear-end accident, you should seek legal representation immediately so that an attorney can confirm witnesses to the accident and preserve crucial evidence before it disappears.
Proving negligence may be fairly straightforward in rear-end accident cases; the driver of the vehicle in the back is almost always at fault. That does not, however, mean that the case is simple or that you do not need a lawyer. The insurance company will likely try to minimize your claim and offer you an insufficient settlement. It is important that you have a respected advocate on your side to help you get the compensation you deserve.
