Austin Rear-End Accident Attorney
Whether you are the victim of a fender bender caused by tailgating or aggressive driving, or if your accident is the result of driving while texting, you can find help in claiming damages by coming to an Austin rear-end accident attorney at the Loewy Law Firm.
Rear-end car accidents are among the most common types of collisions in Austin, frequently occurring at intersections when the following driver fails to hit the brakes early enough to avoid a crash. Either driver may be at fault in a rear-end collision, and the victim has a right to claim full financial compensation for everything including lost income, medical bills and pain and suffering.
Common Causes of Rear-End Collisions
Like any car accident, rear end collisions are usually the result of human error or negligence. In the United States, rear-end accidents are the most widely reported type of traffic accident. This type of collision can occur while one or both vehicles are moving. For example: a speeding driver might cause a rear-end accident on the freeway, while a distracted driver could accidentally hit another vehicle stopped at a red light.
Rear-end accidents often include:
- Drunk driving
- Unsafe lane changes
- Tail gaiting
According to Science Daily, distracted drivers are twice as likely to cause rear-end than attentive motorists. Talking on the cellphone, texting while driving, using a GPS device, or reading behind the wheel are other common factors associated with rear-en collisions. If your rear-end accident was caused by a distracted, tired, or negligent driver, contact an Austin personal injury lawyer from the Loewy Law Firm today.
Injuries in a Rear-End Crash
Even rear-end accidents occurring at relatively low speeds are capable of causing major soft tissue injuries such as whiplash. Injuries of this type go initially undiagnosed, due to the fact that they may not fully manifest their symptoms for several days after the accident, but will often result in severe and debilitating chronic pain and restriction in range of motion. Whether you have suffered whiplash, broken bones or even an injury to the brain or spinal cord, you should not be forced to pay the price for the other driver’s negligence. Let us fight to defend your right to a fair settlement.
