Rear-end accidents tend to be unique among car accident types, because they frequently happen when the car being hit is either stopped or moving at a much slower speed. Rear-end accidents can still do significant physical damage to anyone involved. If you or a family member has been rear-ended by another car, our attorneys can help you with your insurance claim.

Common Rear-End Collision Injuries
Because of the lower speeds, injuries from rear-end accidents are not as severe as in other car accidents. However, they can seriously affect a person's life and livelihood. Injuries may include:
- Soft tissue damage
- Neck and back injuries
- Knee and ankle injuries
- Damage to the face and head
- Carpal tunnel
- Broken bones
Injuries may also manifest later as the injured driver may have seen the oncoming car and braced for impact, causing the muscles to tense. Once those muscles relax, symptoms may occur.
Because California law states that the car that caused the rear-end accident is at fault, it is usually pretty cut and dried. However, getting your insurance company to cover the full cost of your injuries is not. Our attorneys work on your behalf to get the compensation you need to cover your medical expenses, lost wages and any other costs associated with your accident.
