Rear-End Accident Attorney Serving Waco, Texas
Have you been injured? We can help.
Rear-end accidents are a common occurrence on roadways in Waco and throughout Texas, especially during the peak of rush-hour traffic when stop-and-go driving is part of the daily commute. Even though the majority of rear-end collisions tend to happen at low speed, the impact can leave victims severely injured. The factors contributing to the severity of rear-end accidents include:
- The vehicle's size
- The speed traveled
- The point of impact
The victim's interior settings, such as seat adjustment and head-rest location, can also determine the severity of a rear-end accident. Potential injuries include, but are not limited to:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Internal injuries
- Broken bones
- Soft tissue damage to the neck and back.
Failure to address the trauma induced by a rear-end collision, can further lead to a slew of health concerns. Following a rear-end wreck, the victim may undergo months of physical therapy in order to fully recover.
In short, it's a mistake to say that rear-end crashes are always low-impact crashes. The injuries sustained can be severe - but an insurance company will still try to reduce or deny your claim. That's why it is important to consult with an experienced Waco auto accident attorney immediately.
What you should do after a rear-end collision
Insurance companies will go to great lengths to look out for their clients and avoid compensating injury victims. In the case of a rear-end accident, they may argue that because the crash happened at a low speed, you couldn't have possibly been seriously injured. They may try to blame your injuries on a pre-existing condition, or even argue that you were somehow to blame for the wreck.
Far too often, victims are stuck with medical bills and injuries stemming from an accident. Insurance companies are likely to take advantage of victims who don't know their rights.
If you or a loved one are injured in a rear-end traffic accident, consult with a Waco auto accident attorney and get compensated for your losses. Don't let the insurance companies deny your claim and never accept any settlement they offer.
