"This was my first accident ever and with that it was a 5 car pile up. I was scared and had no idea what to do. I called Ben's office to get me some help when the insurance was trying to say they didn't know who was at fault and I had to pay out of pocket."

Your rear-end car accident attorney will assess your claim to determine the amount of compensation you’re entitled to.

Can You Sue for a Rear-End
Collision?

Yes, if you have been injured or sustained damages as a result of a collision caused by a negligent driver, you can file a lawsuit.

Filing a lawsuit after a rear-end accident usually entails:

Establishing Liability

In a rear-end collision, it’s often presumed that the driver in the rear was to blame for the accident. This presumption is based on the expectation that drivers should maintain a safe following distance and be attentive to traffic conditions.

Evidence of Negligence

To build a strong case, you must gather evidence that proves negligence. This may include photos of the accident scene and your injuries, witness statements, and any available video surveillance or traffic camera footage.

Pursue Damages

If you have sustained injuries in the rear-end accident, you may be eligible to pursue compensation for past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, property damage, and other losses.

Insurance Claims

You need to file an insurance claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance company. You will need to provide documentation of the damages and injuries, and negotiate with the insurance adjuster.

Filing a Lawsuit

If a fair settlement cannot be reached through negotiations, you may file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver. Speak with a rear end accident attorney to understand the legal process and your rights.

Statute of Limitations

The statute of limitations is the time limit for filing a lawsuit. Failing to file within the specified period can result in losing the right to pursue compensation.

Speak to An Attorney

An attorney can guide you through the legal process, especially if the rear-end accident resulted in severe injuries or if liability is disputed.

Negotiations and Trial

A rear-end accident lawyer can negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf and, if necessary, represent you in court to seek fair and just compensation.
