Sacramento Rear-End Accident Attorney
Rear-end collisions are among the most common vehicle accidents and they can also be the most frustrating. Unlike a head-on collision or T-bone collision, a rear-end accident often happens while a driver is stopped at a light or a stop sign, yielding to another vehicle or pedestrian, and in dense traffic. The driver cannot see the accident coming, so there is nothing he or she can do to avoid being hit, and that can be extremely frustrating.
In addition to dealing with their injuries, victims of rear-end collisions are often exasperated with the process of getting the compensation they deserve from the insurance company. Also, often their injuries are called into question, especially when the injury is a soft-tissue injury or involves chronic pain or decreased motor function after the accident.

For more than 25 years, our firm has fought to protect the rights of car accident victims throughout Northern California.

Who Is at Fault in a Rear End Collision?
Rear-end collisions can seem clear-cut, but they are not always easy. Victims may be tempted to accept the insurance company’s initial offer, presuming that since the other driver clearly rear-ended them, that it is the only amount to which they are entitled. However, this is not always the case.
The insurance company will always try to minimize its costs, and it is important to consult with a Sacramento car accident attorney who has handled these types of cases before. That is the best way for injured individuals to ensure that they receive the compensation they are owed.
Our experienced personal injury lawyers in Sacramento help our clients establish fault. Whether it was a mechanical defect and the manufacturer or repair shop is at fault, or if it was a driver or maintenance issue and the fault lies with the person driving the other car, our attorneys will investigate the incident fully and ensure that the proper parties are held accountable.
