Pittsburgh Rear-End Accident Lawyers
Call the personal injury law firm that knows how to get results
One of the most common types of car accidents is rear-end accidents. This type of crash could happen on Washington Avenue, I-376 or right in your own neighborhood, and it can leave you with serious injuries. When a negligent driver rear-ends your vehicle, you deserve financial compensation. The experienced rear-end accident attorneys at Romanow Law Group fight for you.
How do rear-end accidents happen? Usually, the driver of the vehicle that was in the rear was at fault. The driver may have been texting or was distracted in another way. The driver may have been drinking or started to fall asleep at the wheel. Or the driver may have been driving too fast and couldn’t stop in time to prevent a collision.
Recovering compensation after a rear-end accident can still be complicated. Drivers may try to avoid responsibility. They may even argue that the accident was your fault because you came to a sudden stop. Don’t expect help from the insurance companies. They will use any excuse they can to try to pay you as little as possible.
Rear-end accidents make up nearly 20% of all crashes in the state each year, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. They can leave you with injuries that require medical treatment. You may miss time from work just as medical expenses start to add up. We believe that drivers who cause rear-end crashes need to be held accountable.
Can I sue the driver who caused my rear-end accident?
You may be able to file a lawsuit to recover compensation for the damages you suffered in a rear-end crash. This includes current and future medical expenses for treating your injuries.
One common injury seen in rear-end crashes is whiplash. During the collision, your head can snap forward and backward very rapidly with great force. This can stretch the muscles, ligaments, and tendons in the neck, resulting in pain.
Victims can also suffer herniated discs and other back injuries, traumatic brain injury (TBI) if they hit their head during the crash, arm and wrist injuries, and broken bones.
A lawyer can determine the total damages you suffered and file a lawsuit on your behalf in the appropriate court. An attorney can also handle all communication with the other’s driver’s insurance company, including settlement negotiations.
In addition to medical expenses, you can seek compensation for lost wages and property damage. If you have “full tort” car insurance, you can also seek compensation for non-economic damages such as pain and suffering.
