What is a Rear-End Collision?
A rear-end collision is a type of accident that occurs on the roadway when the front end of one vehicle crashes into the rear end of another. Rear-end collisions happen most frequently at stop signs, traffic lights, and other intersections, but they can also occur in stopped traffic on the highway or anywhere else where one vehicle can come upon another too quicky to stop. Rear-end collisions can also be a part of a multi-vehicle accident if multiple cars are lined up at a stop and the further vehicle causes a chain reaction crash.
Damages for Rear-End Collisions
The damages for victims injured in a rear-end collision include compensation for their out of pocket expenses and other harms caused by the accident. Economic damages cover the present and future medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, and any loss of future income or benefits as a result of a victim’s injuries. Medical expenses include transportation to the hospital, hospitalization, treatment, surgery, medication, and future rehabilitation.
Noneconomic damages compensate a victim for their pain and suffering, emotional distress, disability, disfigurement, and for any loss of enjoyment of life. There are currently no caps on the amount of noneconomic damages that a victim can collect for a rear-end collision case.
How a Lawyer Can Help
An experienced car accident lawyer like those at The Law Office of Joseph Linnehan, Jr. can be the critical difference between a victim receiving full compensation for their claim or merely a fraction of what they deserve. A lawyer can protect victims from unscrupulous insurers that are looking for any reason to minimize a victim’s claim. They can perform their own independent investigation into the accident to ensure that the proper parties are held responsible for the accident, and they understand how to properly value a victim’s damages in the case.
