Who is liable?

The most important question in any personal injury case is determining who is at fault for the accident. One of the most fundamental rules of the road is to drive in a manner that will allow you to safely come to a stop under any circumstance. Failure to abide by this rule causes accidents and puts people's life in danger.

Circumstances that may affect liability in rear-end collisions include:

  • First driver is driving in a reckless and erratic manner making it impossible for a driver who is behind him to avoid an accident;
  • A car stopped in a lane of traffic without any reasonable notice to other drivers, such as hazard lights or flares;
  • Fog, rain, snow, or other dangerous weather conditions make it difficult for a driver to see that another driver has slowed or stopped, or has made it difficult for a driver to stop;
  • The driver was rear-ended by a third party vehicle, which causes his car to collide with the car in front of him; and/or
  • Defective or broken taillights that fail to give proper warning to the driver in the rear.
  • Driver who was texting while driving

In these scenarios, the driver who collides with the front car might not be fully liable for the damages, and in some cases, he or she may be able to avoid liability altogether. In personal injury claims for damages sustained in these kinds of collisions, the other party will do all they can to sway the case in their favor. Thus, it is essential to have an aggressive personal injury lawyer on your side who has the necessary skills and resources to stand up for your right to compensation.

Obtain Compensation for Your Injuries

Even though you may not feel immediate injury after a rear-end crash, it is recommended that you see your doctor as soon as possible. Serious injuries such as internal bleeding or spinal cord injury can take hours, or even days to fully appear. You should consult a physician if you experience any blurred vision, headaches, or pain/weakness spreading to your shoulders, neck, back, legs or arms. These and other similar symptoms can point to catastrophic injuries.

Additional serious injuries that can result from rear-end accidents include:

These injuries can require extensive treatment and long recovery periods which can mean heavy medical bills and an inability to work for the wages to pay for them. You cannot afford to face the results of a rear-end collision on your own and you may be entitled to a settlement to cover your expenses. Let McLeod Law Group, LLC fight for you to receive just compensation in order to help you transition to a better future after a rear-end crash.
