Coral Springs Rear End Accident Lawyer
Rear end collisions are one of the most common car accidents. One car slams into the rear of the car in front of it, and injuries often result. Rear end collisions happen most frequently in parking lots and at intersections, though a rear-end collision could happen anywhere, even on the highway.
If you were hurt in a rear end crash, please contact Lyons & Snyder as soon as possible. Our Coral Springs rear end accident lawyer will gladly meet with you to review your case. You might receive compensation for your car damage, personal injuries, and pain—but you should review the process for negotiating a settlement with an experienced attorney.
Who Is At Fault For a Rear End Collision?
There is a common misconception that the car trailing behind is always responsible because they slam into the car ahead. But the law in Florida requires that we fully analyze all the facts and circumstances to answer the question, “Who is at fault?”
It might be that the car behind is to blame because the driver was:
- Texting and driving
- Driving recklessly
- However, it’s also possible the car in front is to blame for:
- Braking suddenly and for no reason
- Failing to use a turn signal
- Stopping in the middle of the road
- Cutting a driver off
At Lyons & Snyder, we do a 360-degree analysis of the crash to find out what happened and who is at fault. That way, we effectively advocate for our client’s right to compensation following a crash.
What Injuries Are Common with Rear-End Collisions?
Motorists can suffer any type of traumatic injury in this type of accident. Nevertheless, some injuries are more common than others.
This is an injury that affects the soft tissue in the neck. Your tendons, muscles, and ligaments can be stretched too far when your head snaps back and forth after a rear end crash. Whiplash has certain symptoms, such as neck stiffness and pain, along with headaches. Whiplash can take months to heal.
The bones in your neck make up the cervical spine. They can fracture in a rear-end collision, often due to the forces generated. Cervical fractures cause intense pain and can lead to disability.
Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
Our clients suffer TBIs often with whiplash. The sudden shaking movement can disrupt the normal functioning of the brain. Common symptoms include confusion, loss of coordination, mood changes, memory loss, and impaired speech. Mild TBIs may heal on their own in a matter of months, but more serious TBIs will require greater rest and rehabilitation to improve.
