Types of Injuries and Causes of Rear-End Collisions
Rear-end collisions can cause a number of injuries. If the impact is great, injuries could include traumatic brain injuries, burn injuries, scarring, bruising, disfigurement or the loss of a limb. Less severe impacts can still greatly impact an individual, causing head, neck and shoulder pain or soft tissue injuries such as whiplash. These accidents can result in these injuries from a number of situations, some including:
- Accidents with parked cars
- Drunk driving
- Excessive speeding
- Reckless driving
- Inattentive driving — including texting while driving
Strong Advocates for Injured People
If the impact is subtle or causes minimal property damage, the other driver's insurance company may even try to persuade you not to call a lawyer. The reality is that you need a lawyer to make certain your rights are protected. Unlike insurance adjusters, an accident injury lawyer will provide an objective analysis of your situation. The lawyers at Carter Law Offices have the resources, tools and knowledge to handle the most complex auto accident cases, and will work to maximize your compensation for your injuries. Our top goal is to look out for our client's interests by helping make a difference in his or her life after a car accident.
