Rear-End Accident Lawyers
Experienced attorneys who know how to deal with insurance companies
One of the most common types of car accidents are rear-end accidents. The front of one car crashes into the back of another, resulting in injuries to drivers and passengers. You have the right to seek financial compensation for your injuries, but the legal process can be complicated. You need an experienced lawyer on your side.
Brent Adams & Associates has been fighting for the injured in North Carolina since our founding in 1973. We know how insurance companies mistreat people after an accident and the tactics they use to avoid their responsibility. Our attorneys level the playing field to help the injured recover the compensation they deserve.
Holding negligent drivers accountable
What causes rear-end accidents? Often, it’s the negligence of a driver in the rear vehicle. The driver was speeding or driving recklessly. The driver may have been texting, driving under the influence or falling asleep at the wheel. The result is failing to notice the car ahead and being unable to stop in time to prevent a collision.
A rear-accident can leave you with injuries to the head or neck, including whiplash. Injuries to the back and face and broken bones are also possible. Medical expenses can add up quickly and you may not be able to work. This can lead to financial stress as you try to figure out how you are going to pay your bills
Recovering financial compensation for your injuries should be simple, but negligent drivers often refuse to accept responsibility. They may deny doing anything wrong and may even blame you for what happened.
Insurance companies are supposed to help when you’ve been injured. The truth is they are not on your side. Their goal is to pay you as little as possible. That helps protect their profits. They may question the seriousness of your injuries or blame you for the accident. Another common tactic is to make you a lowball settlement offer.
Fighting for maximum compensation
We think you deserve better. That’s why our legal team investigates your accident to get the facts. We gather evidence, including any video from nearby traffic cameras. We carefully review all documentation, such as accident reports and medical records. If there were witnesses, we interview them. If needed, we consult accident reconstruction experts and other specialists.
Insurance companies love lawyers who only want to make quick settlements that help them save money. They hate us. We’re not interested in quick deals. We’re only interested in getting the results that meet your needs – whether that’s through a negotiated settlement or a jury verdict. Our attorneys are not afraid to go to trial, if that’s what it takes.
It’s important to get legal advice as soon as possible after you’ve injured in a rear-end accident. The statute of limitations for taking legal action is three years from the date of the crash. That seems like a long time. But the longer you wait, the more likely it is that evidence will be lost or destroyed and the memories of witnesses will fade.
