Auburn Rear-End Accident Lawyers
Helping Injured Drivers in Alabama
In most cases, the driver of the rear vehicle bears responsibility for causing a rear-end car accident. Typically, these drivers engage in negligent behaviors, such as:
- Texting while driving
- Using a GPS device
- Eating or drinking
- Reckless driving
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
The injuries resulting from rear-end collisions can vary greatly, depending on several factors, including the vehicles' speed at the time of impact. Even accidents at lower speeds can cause significant harm. Common injuries observed in rear-end collisions include soft tissue damage, whiplash, contusions, and broken bones. In more severe cases, injuries to the head, neck, or back may occur.
When you're involved in a rear-end collision, one might assume that resolving a claim should be straightforward. After all, the other driver was clearly at fault, so their insurance company should cover the damages resulting from the accident. Unfortunately, resolving rear-end accident cases is seldom that simple.
Firstly, negligent drivers often refuse to accept responsibility for their actions. They may concoct excuses or even try to shift blame onto you. Their insurance company is likely to side with them, as their primary goal is to minimize payments and maximize profits.
