Miami: Rear-End Car Accident Collision Attorneys
Rear-end collisions account for roughly 30 percent of all car accidents in the United States, according to a 2008 article in Science Daily. The yearly cost of treating neck and back injuries caused by rear-end collisions is about $8.5 million, according to the same article.
It may seem that liability is clear in a rear-end collision car accident. The driver in front brakes or slows down suddenly and the car behind doesn't notice and runs into the back end of the first driver's car. However, rear-end collision victims are often surprised to discover that the other driver challenges liability. This is important because the question of who is at fault in a car accident can have a major impact on the resources available to compensate the injury victim.

Delayed Injury After a Rear-End Collision Car Accident
When the time comes to seek a settlement, the insurance companies sometimes minimize the injuries associated with rear-end collisions, including whiplash injury and other types of neck and back injuries. Our attorneys have had significant success negotiating fair and complete settlements for victims of rear-end collisions.
It is very important to seek immediate medical attention after a rear-end collision car accident. Describe any pain completely and ask for any necessary tests to diagnose the problem. It is also critical to pay attention to any delayed reactions from the crash. If you begin to experience neck or back pain days, weeks or months after the accident, see the doctor immediately and explain that you were recently in a car accident.
Your attorneys need evidence to connect your whiplash injury or other neck or back pain to the car accident, in order to respond to any possible argument from the insurance company that your injuries are due to some other cause.
