Rear End Accidents

Have You Been Rear-Ended in a Car Accident? Call a Trusted Auto Accident Attorney.

A rear-end accident happens when one vehicle smashes into the rear of the car in front of him. This can result in car damage or medical consequences, namely whiplash or permanent injuries. If you have been involved in a rear-end accident, and you are seeking restitution for damages, such as emotional, financial, or physical suffering, the Voorhies Law Firm can help.

The Voorhies Law Firm has a team that includes a former insurance defense attorney who can work with you to maximize the benefits owed to you after being in this kind of accident. With a member of their team being selected in the Super Lawyers listing for Rising Stars, you and your accident claim are in good hands.

Rear-End Collision Faults

Being hit from behind means that the car that was following you was negligent in following the rules of the road.

Examples of negligence on the road include:

  • Inability to maintain control of the vehicle
  • Distracted driving and not paying attention to hazards
  • Following the car in front at an unsafe distance
  • Failing to yield to right-of-way
  • Not driving at a reasonable speed based on posted speed limits and road conditions
  • Failure to stop the vehicle in an appropriate time
  • Driving while intoxicated

Drivers have a responsibility to follow a car at a safe distance in the case of any unexpected road hazards that may exist. If someone fails to do this and one car rear ends another one, a crucial rule of the road is broken.

Rear-End Accident Injuries

When you are involved in a rear-end accident, a number of injuries can occur. This can be very frustrating, especially if you do not get the compensation that you deserve for your suffering.

Some of the most common injuries include the following:

  • Whiplash Seatbelt injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Face and head injuries
  • Wrist, arm, and hand injuries
