Getting Justice After Your Rear-End Collision

Injuries from a rear-end automobile collision can be mild, serious or catastrophic. In any situation, however, it’s very important to get prompt medical attention as well as reliable legal advice as soon as possible—even if your symptoms at first seem mild. It is very common for occupants of vehicles struck from behind to experience sore necks or headaches shortly after the collision only to later discover that their injuries are more serious.

It’s also important to not accept a quick settlement offer from an insurance company before knowing what your prognosis really is. It can be difficult to get back to a normal way of life after a rear-end collision, but an experienced attorney can help. Get an attorney on your side as soon as you can after any serious car accident. Contact the Downs Law Firm and learn how we can help.

Step One: A Thorough Investigation

After your rear-end car accident, we will simultaneously investigate the following:

  • The circumstances of the accident: How did the crash occur? In most rear-end accidents, the driver of the car behind the other one is at fault. However, extenuating circumstances, such as when there is a multicar accident, may mean there is a need for a more intensive accident reconstruction effort and investigation.
  • Medical treatment, recovery and prognosis: What do tests such as X-rays or CT scans show? What do clinical evaluations demonstrate? What types of care and therapy will be necessary? Will the injured person need to stay in a rehabilitation facility or another type of long-term care facility?
  • Financial losses: Will the injured person have to miss work for an extended period? Will immediate family members need to pay for services that the injured person previously contributed to the family?
