Rear End Accidents

Rear-End Accident Lawyer in San Francisco

Nearly 40 Years of Personal Injury Representation in the Bay Area

According to some statistics, rear end accidents are the most common form of car accidents on American roads and highways. Drivers following too closely and tailgating may not have enough time to react when traffic stops, crashing into the rear end of the automobile in front of them. In other situations, distracted or intoxicated drivers fail to see that traffic has stopped at an upcoming intersection, colliding full speed into the drivers waiting at the light or stop sign. No matter what the exact cause of your crash, the results are often devastating and personal injury litigation is required to fully compensate the injured.

Throughout our nearly 40 years of legal practice, we have successfully resolved thousands of cases for our clients.

Injuries that may occur during a rear end accident include:

Depending on the speed of the vehicles in the collision and the road and weather conditions, the true extent of the damage can vary greatly. Some injuries may be readily treatable and require only one hospital visit while others may be severe and need ongoing rehabilitation to address and cure. If you are offered an insurance settlement after being hit in a rear end accident, it is important to review it with your attorney first. If you do not, you may accept a sum that is not adequate for the full extent of the damage. Beyond initial medical treatment coverage, you may wish to pursue damages that pay for:

  • Lifelong treatments for permanent injuries
  • Vehicle repair or replacement
  • Lost wages and diminished earning potential
  • Funeral expenses (wrongful death cases)
