Pursuing Compensation for Rear End Collisions in Florida
Rear end collision cases are the most common type of motor vehicle accident and usually happen when the defendant is careless and not paying attention. The challenge in these cases arises when the insurance companies retain the services of biomechanical engineers who will often testify that the injuries sustained could not have happened in this accident. We have been successful in striking the testimony of these so-called “experts” on the basis that it is “junk science”. Our clients are severely injured in rear end collision and we take pride in proving these injuries and obtaining successful results at trial.
Common sense as well as state laws generally presume that the driver of a car or truck behind another in a rear-end collision is at fault — and liable for damages. There may be exceptions to that rule, such as in multi-car crashes or when a car suddenly stops while traveling at a high speed, triggering a collision from behind. Whatever the circumstances involved in a rear-end collision that injured you or killed your loved one, it is important to review all facts as soon as possible after a crash.
The sooner you have a lawyer on your side, the more likely it is that the true cause of a rear-ender or other type of accident can be accurately determined. You should have a skilled attorney on your side to help recover compensation you need after suffering a serious injury such as the following in a rear-end collision:
- Head injury
Even before you contact an attorney, we urge you to have a doctor examine you as soon as possible after you have been involved in a rear-end collision. Do not make statements to investigators before conferring with an attorney. It is quite common for victims of rear-end collisions to believe that their injuries are “only mild,” only to experience ongoing lingering pain. Often, the full extent of a back or neck injury is not apparent until days or weeks later.
