Rear-End Collision Attorney
In a rear-end collision, there is clearer evidence of fault than in any other type of auto accident. In most cases, the car that was hit was stopped at a stop light, at a stop sign or in traffic. Despite the clear evidence of fault, a rear-end accident victim’s injuries may be very difficult to prove because of the nature of the crash dynamics.

Rear-end collisions are unique from other auto accidents. In most accidents, the driver who is hit is either at a complete stop or only moving at a few miles per hour, with no or very little forward momentum. Often, the victim will see the oncoming car in the rear view mirror and expect the collision.
Because of these factors and the low speeds common in these accidents, drivers who are hit in rear-end collisions often suffer the following types of injuries:
- Soft tissue injuries, such as whiplash or disc damage in the cervical vertebrae when the head is snapped forward then suddenly back
- Carpal tunnel injury, due to the driver bracing for the impact by the vehicle he or she sees coming in the rear view mirror
- Ankle and knee injuries, due to flexing legs and bracing for impact
- Serious injuries to the head and face — such as closed head injuries — caused by airbag deployment

Our goal in representing you is to help you get the full and fair damages that you deserve and need to cover your medical bills, expenses and losses.
