Rear-End Collision Car Accident Attorney, Rockville Maryland

About Rear-End Car Accidents

You might be surprised to learn that most rear-end collisions involve vehicles traveling at a low rate of speed, and in many rear-end collisions, the car that is struck has come to a complete stop before being struck.  However, just because an accident occurs at five or 10 miles per hour doesn’t mean it can’t result in serious injuries, especially if you’re the driver or passenger of a car that has been rear-ended.

Drivers and passengers involved in rear-end cars accidents are especially susceptible to whiplash, a specific type of injury to the neck.  Whiplash, as well as other injuries including ruptured discs or sprains may not become apparent until days or weeks after the accident. And, even a low-speed crash can result in a concussion or fractured skull if your head impacts the steering wheel.

In virtually all cases, rear-end collisions are the fault of the following, and not the leading, car, either because the driver has been going too fast, has not left enough distance between his car and the car in front, or simply has not been paying attention. Unfortunately, insurance companies are all too eager to minimize the injuries suffered by lead-car drivers in rear-end collisions, dismissing claims of whiplash or back sprains as insurance gouging.

Our attorneys are experienced at dealing with insurance companies, and will ensure that the injuries you sustained during a rear-end car accident are taken seriously and given the proper consideration.  We take cases involving injuries sustained in rear-end collisions including:

  • Whiplash,
  • Injuries to the neck, back, or spine,
  • Spinal Cord Injury (SCI),
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI),
  • Head injuries and concussions,
  • Fractures, broken bones,
  • Soft tissue damage,
  • Severe sprains, torn muscles and ligaments,
  • Internal organ damage,
  • Disfiguring scars or injuries, and
  • Other serious injuries requiring medical attention and care.

Although not as common as serious injuries, rear-end collisions can result in fatal injuries from internal bleeding or severe head trauma. Our law firm represents also families who have lost a loved on in fatal car accidents in wrongful death actions.

Rockville Rear-End Car Accident Attorneys

Serving Maryland and the District of Columbia

If you or a loved one has been injured in a rear-end collision or any other type of car accident it is important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible. There are statutes of limitations that limit the amount of time you have to take legal action in accident cases in Maryland and in Washington, D.C. , but perhaps even more time sensitive is the need to collect evidence.

The longer you wait to contact an attorney, the more difficult it can be to locate eye witnesses and document injuries. Injuries and damage to vehicles should be documented as soon as possible after an accident. Also, many accidents are caught on video tapes at traffic signals, highways and freeways, and by surrounding businesses or bystanders. The sooner you contact an attorney, the sooner they can begin locating important video evidence before it is lost or destroyed.
