Rear-End Collisions: What Do We Mean By ‘Maximizing’ Your Claim?
A rear-end collision can happen suddenly at an intersection or while driving. Rear end collisions are not only dangerous but are among the most common types of motor vehicle accidents. They are especially dangerous mainly because motorists are caught off guard when the accident occurs. You may not see it coming and this can lead to greater injuries for drivers and passengers alike, including whiplash and soft tissue injuries. If you were injured in a rear-end collision, you may have more than one valid insurance claim:
- A claim against the negligent driver
- Additional benefits under your own auto policy, such as underinsured motorist or medical payments coverage
- A claim against a third-party, such as a manufacturer or employer

Our goal is to make sure that you have the money you need to pay for all of your current expenses as well as those you may incur in the future involving medical treatment, long-term care, and lost wages.

Defective Auto Parts Cause Accidents And Exacerbate Injuries
Some rear-end accidents involving defective or dangerous products. Defective brakes can cause another driver to rear-end you. Poorly designed systems may cause sudden accelerations. Defective parts can also cause or exacerbate injuries, such as a defective seat belt.
Rear-end accidents can cause injury both for the driver in the lead and for the driver in the rear vehicle. In these products liability cases, we can pursue compensation from the manufacturer of the auto part or other product.
