Were you rear-ended? Our Phoenix car accident lawyers are here to help. At Friedl Richardson, we fight for maximum financial compensation so that auto accident victims aren’t left paying out-of-pocket for expenses like vehicle repairs and medical bills. Rear-end accidents are actually quite common, and the resulting damage can range from moderate to severe, usually depending on how fast the vehicles were traveling. Retaining an experienced personal injury attorney for your rear-end car accident case means that you’ll have a strong legal advocate on your side to hold the insurance company accountable and ensure that the at-fault driver is held liable for their carelessness.
Many rear-end accidents are caused by drivers who were distracted. In many cases, that distraction takes on the form of texting while driving. Consider the following example scenarios of driver distraction and how it can lead to a collision.
Bodily injury insurance can provide compensation for victims of rear-end accidents. If you were involved in this type of collision, you might be suffering from the effects of whiplash. Whiplash is a common car accident injury that occurs when the muscles and ligaments in the neck are stretched beyond their normal range of motion. This can cause soreness that may not surface until one or two days after the accident. In more serious rear-end collisions, passengers sitting in the back seats of vehicles can sustain severe injuries such as lacerations, fractures and traumatic brain injury (TBI). This is more common in vehicles that have small trunks and/or little space between the back passenger seats and the tailgate.
