How Can a Rear-End Accident Lawyer Help Me?

Rear End Accident Lawyer

Hiring a rear-end accident lawyer will help ensure you get the most compensation possible. Once hired, we establish liability and how the liable party caused your injuries. Your job is to heal, rest, and focus on regaining your life as much as possible.

Determining The Cause Of Rear-End Car Accidents Is Important

In some cases, the rear driver’s brakes fail, potentially turning car accident cases into products liability claims. However, rear-end collisions occur more frequently when rear-end drivers ignore the road.

With decades of experience, our car accident attorneys have proven fault against motorists in distracted driving claims involving:

  • Texting and driving
  • Talking on cell phones while driving
  • Putting make-up on or eating while driving
  • Losing focus of the road while tinkering with the radio or talking with passengers

Our law firm has extensive experience proving fault in rear-end collisions when motorists follow vehicles too closely or drive at unsafe speeds. We have the skills and legal resources to hold at-fault drivers responsible for their actions, even when liability is initially unknown.

How Much Does a Rear-End Accident Lawyer Cost?

The Law Office of John M. McCabe takes all personal injury cases on contingency. Contingency means we will cover all the case costs and will not charge any fees unless we win you a settlement.

How Much Will My Rear-End Accident Case Settlement Be?

Your settlement for your case will depend on many variables. Depending on the extent of the damage to your car and how badly you and any passengers were injured, your settlement can range from a few hundred dollars to the total threshold limits of the insurance company.  Additionally, if we find a third party liable (a brakes manufacturer, for example), the settlement can be significant. You can count on us for rear-end accident help.

What To Do After a Rear-End Accident

If you have been in a rear-end accident, there are essential steps to take for your well-being and your case should you file a lawsuit.

Call the Police

One of the most important things after a rear-end accident is to contact the police. The police will file an official report that you can use in court and also help you immediately after if there are injuries or you need to go to the hospital.

Gather Witness Information

If it is safe to do so, gather witness contact information that your rear-end accident lawyer will need to set up your case.

Seek Immediate Medical Care

Not only is seeking medical care important but seeking it as soon as possible is just as important. If you delay seeing a doctor, jurors of the liable party may wonder why. Additionally, many rear-end accident injuries don't show symptoms until weeks later. Seeing a doctor immediately will ensure your well-being.
