Car accidents can be caused in many ways, but the most common type is the rear-end collision. Even at relatively low speeds, a rear-end car accident can cause long-lasting impact on one’s back, neck, and head. Notably, the trailing driver is almost always determined to be the at-fault, negligent party in a rear-end collision. It is rare for the person driving the rear-ended vehicle to be found at fault. However minor an accident may seem, it’s important to contact a personal injury attorney. If hired, Maginnis Howard’s lawyers will work closely with you to maximize the value of your claim.
After a rear-end collision, you will likely receive a call from the at-fault driver’s automobile insurance company. In such “clear liability” situations as a rear-end car accident, the insurer typically wants to “get out” fast and cheap. However, insurers don’t always offer the best settlements right away. Such offers rarely fully compensate the injured party for their medical expenses, lost wages, disability, and pain and suffering. In most situations, your recovery will be higher if you hire a personal injury lawyer and wait to settle your case until all relevant medical treatment has been completed.
