What Compensation Is Available for a Rear-End Collision?

If you were rear-ended, the driver who hit you who was likely at fault. Although there is no presumption under California law that the rear driver caused the accident, in practice, rear drivers are found to be at fault for most rear-end collisions. You should be able to recover compensation for your crash-related losses by bringing a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver. Damages you may be entitled to include medical expenses, property damage, lost wages or earnings, loss of future income, and pain and suffering.

Why Choose Us?

After a rear-end accident, insurance carriers tend to focus on the amount of damage to the vehicle. If the damage is minor, they may deny injury claims or make a lowball settlement offer to be rid of your claim entirely. Previous injuries can make a person more vulnerable to injuries such as whiplash, which is frequently sustained in rear-end collisions. Under state law, a party who causes an accident is responsible for aggravation of a preexisting injury.

Our experienced team can thoroughly investigate your accident and fully document the losses you have suffered. We can negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf, and fight for your rights in court, when necessary.
