Injured In A Car Accident? Helping the Injured Get Compensation

Compensation for Rear-End Collisions

Representation from a Portland Car Accident Lawyer

Rear-end collisions are one of the most common kinds of car accidents and, even while a number of them occur at low speeds, they can cause serious injuries to those involved. Even more frustrating for the rear-ended driver is the fact that it is often the tailing driver who is solely at fault for this kind of accident.

If you've been rear-ended by another driver or a third-party caused you to rear-end another vehicle, then it's likely you're entitled to compensation for your injuries. At the Law Offices of Timothy Grabe, we've fought for countless drivers who have sustained injuries from rear-end collisions and recovered the compensation they deserve, including cases involving a hit and run and uninsured driver. If you've been injured in a rear-end collision, do not hesitate to contact a proven Portland car accident attorney.

Causes & Injuries of Rear-end Collisions

While the tailing driver can often be at fault in a rear-end collision, this is not always the case. Other external factors on the road can cause your vehicle to be struck from behind.

Some of the causes of rear-end collisions include:

  • Sudden decreases in lane speed (construction, radar guns, debris, etc.)
  • Accidents in the lane ahead of you
  • Tailgating by the tailing driver
  • Drunk or distracted driving by other drivers
  • Broken brake lights (or other vehicle malfunctions) in the car ahead of you
  • Road and weather conditions

Once your car is struck from behind, you and your passengers are vulnerable to a number of injuries. Some of these include whiplash, face injuries, and hand injuries (especially if the airbag is deployed). Many of these injures are apparent at the time of the accident, but some brain and head or neck and back injuries, can linger, and cause long lasting pain and costs for the victim.

You Don't Have to Suffer Any Longer

The statute of limitations for personal injury cases is only two years from the time of the incident. That means that if you or a loved one have been wrongfully hurt by another driver's actions in a rear-end collision, it is advised you act immediately.

At our firm, we have built our reputation on fighting for our clients' rights while facing personal injury and providing them with an aggressive, assertive voice in court. We're ready to do the same for you and your injury case—and you don't pay unless we win on your behalf.
