Rear End Collisions 

In a rear-end collisions, every year, in the United States, more than 1.7 million drivers are rear-ended, and approximately 1,700 result in a fatality. If you or someone you know has been the victim of a rear-end collision, it is important to seek help immediately. Mingus Mountain Law Group can guide you through the steps to take after a rear-end collision.

Many drivers feel “okay” after being hit. This is because the adrenaline in your system can mask the pain. Once the adrenaline wears off, you may begin to experience significant discomfort and pain due to a neck or back injury. Because you may not notice the effects of your injury until much later, it is important to seek medical attention immediately following rear-end-collisions.

Who is at fault in a rear end auto accident?

In almost all instances, the driver who was hit is not at fault. If, for example, you have been stopped at a light or a stop sign, you are not responsible. But if you stopped quickly in traffic, it may be more complicated to determine which party is at fault. You should always speak with an experienced attorney to help determine fault in these situations.

Getting compensation from insurance companies can be a challenge. As the injured party, you are responsible to prove the other driver is at fault. If you do not have an attorney, the insurance company will attempt to settle for a small fraction of what you need to recover from your injuries. An experienced attorney will be able to help you get the compensation you deserve.
