  • Types of Rear-End Collisions

    A rear-end collision occurs when a vehicle crashes into another in front of it. While automated safety systems have reduced the risk of such crashes, they still happen all the time. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says rear-end accidents constitute up to 30% of all car crashes, which makes them one of the most prevalent types. Causes include:

    • Distracted driving
    • Stopping short due to panic or to avoid hitting something
    • Tailgating
    • Weather conditions like rain or snow
    • Poor or unpaved roads

    Rear-ending a moving vehicle is generally less forceful than hitting one that is stopped, but it is no less dangerous, as both cars can lose control and endanger those around them. When a car hits a stationary one of the same size and build, the impact force is roughly half of what it would be crashing into an immovable structure. That is, if someone crashes into a stopped car at 44 mph, it’s as if they’re plowing into a block of concrete at 22 mph. This force is much greater when slamming into larger vehicles like trucks. Naturally, the potential for injuries is high.

  • Rear-End-Collision Injuries

    Rear-end crashes can contribute to all kinds of wounds, from those related to hitting the steering wheel or windshield to driving underneath raised flatbeds. But by far the most prevalent affliction is whiplash. Whiplash is a neck injury resulting from a sudden, forceful back-and-forth motion of the head resembling the cracking of a whip. It ranges in severity but can lead to lifelong problems, so if you are involved in an auto accident, it always pays to get checked out by a physician. If you hire a rear-end-collision attorney, having a record of medical due diligence can also help your case.

  • Who Is to Blame?

    Sometimes, it’s tricky to assign fault in a rear-end collision. A driver might slam on the brakes, for example, to avoid hitting a pedestrian, leaving the car behind them little to no chance of stopping in time. But generally, for insurance purposes, the driver of the car that hits the one in front of it is to blame (unless the latter is going in reverse). 

  • Hiring a Rear-End-Collision Lawyer

    The problem is, insurance companies don’t want to pay up when the time comes. They may make lowball offers or try to deny your claim outright. Having a Morgan & Morgan rear-end-collision attorney in your corner can make all the difference when it comes to ensuring you receive adequate compensation. We have the resources to take on the big guys, so if we can’t reach a sufficient settlement agreement, we’ll go to trial. And Morgan & Morgan operates on a contingency fee basis, which means there’s no upfront cost. We’re free unless we win.

Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.
Georgia J.
General Injury
It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.
Antonia C.
Slip and Fall
I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.
Todd E.
Homeowners Insurance
I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
