Rear-End Collisions Can Cause Serious Injuries
If you have been involved in a rear-end collision, the long-term effects of your injuries might not be immediately apparent. Many people who have been hit from behind have a stiff neck, then feel lucky that they didn’t suffer more catastrophic injuries. But head and neck injuries can affect you for years after a rear-end collision, and it is important to see an experienced motor vehicle accident attorney before you accept a settlement from an insurance company.

Examining Fault In Rear-End Accident Cases
Our lawyers have more than 50 years of experience helping people recover money damages after they have been hit from behind by a negligent driver. Many people involved in rear-end collisions are under the assumption that they were partially at fault for stopping too quickly. The truth is that very rarely will some amount of liability be placed on the lead driver in a rear-end collision. Rear-end collisions are nearly always the result of inattentive driving or a driver not allowing enough following distance between his or her vehicle and the car in front.
We Have Helped People Recover Money Damages For Injuries Such As:
Insurance company claims adjusters are paid to offer as little as possible to you for your injuries. Although your whiplash or neck injury may not seem very serious, it is important to talk with a skilled and experienced personal injury lawyer. We have handled many rear-end collision claims, and have the professional resources to develop a strong case for negotiating a higher settlement than the insurance company offers.
We also handle side-impact, or T-bone accident cases.
When mechanical failure, driver distraction or another negligence causes one vehicle to broadside another vehicle, the outcome can be catastrophic and even fatal. Whether an accident involves a careless driver who runs a red light or a semi truck that sideswipes another vehicle on the interstate, our lawyers are prepared to provide the effective legal counsel victims and their families need.
A side-impact car accident has the tendency to lead to catastrophic injuries and fatalities. Factors commonly contributing to the severity of injuries are that both vehicles are commonly traveling at full speed and the occupants are likely to be struck by something on the interior of the vehicle — or the vehicle itself — as it crumples into them.
What Caused Your Side-Impact Accident?
When investigating a T-bone accident, our attorneys examine many factors to determine the cause:
- Was the other driver texting while driving or focusing on something else that pulled his or her attention away from the road?
- Was the other driver drinking and driving?
- Did product defects come into play?
After a thorough investigation, we identify all angles of liability for the T-bone accident and pursue full compensation for negligence.
