What Causes a Rear-End Car Accident?

It is rare for a rear-end collision to be caused by anything other than the negligence of the rear driver that crashes into another vehicle. Rear-end collision also often occur while the front vehicle is not moving at all. The result is an abrupt and violent exchange of force from the back vehicle to the front, causing severe injuries. Victims in either vehicle may experience brain injuries, spinal cord damage, whiplash, and even death.

Negligent behaviors and actions of the rear driver may include:

  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Ignoring traffic signals
  • Speeding
  • Tailgating
  • Texting and driving

An investigation by our certified attorney may be able to reveal that your rear-end car accident was a direct consequence of the other driver’s recklessness. If this is the case, we can push for full compensation that covers medical bills, reduced earning, vehicle repair, and your emotional trauma.

Mediation May Be the Answer

At our law firm, we prepare each case as if it is going to go to court. We do, however, believe in the power and convenience of mediation. If we can achieve a fair settlement in a conference room instead of a courtroom, we do not overlook it, as this would allow you to avoid court costs and days spent out of your home when you should be relaxing. Go ahead and call us at 505.559.4117 and we can explain more about your legal options and whether or not you should be considering mediation with the help of our Albuquerque car accident attorney.
