Protecting Your Interests in a Rear-End Crash
One of the most common types of car accidents are rear-end collisions. The person in the car that is struck from behind can suffer serious neck or back injuries from the accident. Unfortunately, insurance companies are notorious for not taking these injuries seriously, especially when your vehicle does not suffer extensive damage.
As a personal injury lawyer with more than three decades of experience in Boston and other communities in Massachusetts, I have extensive experience dealing with insurance companies to help my clients recover the full compensation they deserve.
Dealing with Serious Injuries
Insurance companies often equate personal injury to vehicle damage in rear-end collisions. If your vehicle does not show extensive damage, they will argue, you could not have been seriously injuries. Even though this argument is based on pseudo-science, it often takes an experienced lawyer to counter the insurance company’s position before a judge and jury.
Due to the forces involved in a rear end collision, drivers and passengers can suffer serious injuries, such as:
- Slipped or herniated discs
- Nerve damage
- Brain injuries (caused by the sudden acceleration-deceleration of the brain inside the skull)
- Fractured vertebrae
- Spinal cord injuries, leading to full or partial paralysis
It’s important to seek prompt medical attention from a doctor who is fully qualified to diagnose and treat your injury. If you are contacted by the insurance company of the at-fault driver, it’s important not to say anything or sign anything before you talk to a lawyer.
