Getting rear-ended can lead to a confusing and difficult process when it comes to getting compensated. Make sure you get treated fairly by working with a Phoenix rear-end collision lawyer.
If you’ve experienced a rear-end collision, you know they can be an ordeal. Although rear-end collisions on US roads each year number in the millions, these accidents are nonetheless traumatic for motorists.
Rear-end collisions are often the result of one car following another too closely. Wrecks may occur if one car is stopped at an intersection and the other car approaches quickly, or if on the road, a vehicle slows and the following vehicle does not brake in time.
The driver of the rear car is usually presumed to be at fault, although this may not always be the case. If you’ve recently been injured in a rear-end collision caused by another driver’s carelessness, you could be entitled to a claim. Wagner Law’s Phoenix rear-end collision lawyer can help you get the settlement you’re owed.
Who Caused Your Rear-Ender?
Our Phoenix rear-end collision lawyer will first determine who was at fault for the accident. In rear-end collisions, the driver who rear-ended the other car will usually be found at fault. Collisions occur when a driver following another car is engaging in dangerous driving behaviors such as any of the following:
Following too closely
However, in some cases the driver who was rear-ended may have caused the collision. Some scenarios in which this may be the case include the driver making a sudden, unnecessary stop in the middle of the highway; the driver’s brake lights malfunctioning; or the rear-ended driver reversing suddenly and hitting the car behind.
Arizona follows laws of comparative negligence. This means that even if you were partially at fault for your accident, you may still be entitled to a claim. We will review your case and work to get you a full and fair settlement.
How Much Is My Collision Claim Worth?
You may be facing a mountain of bills after your rear-ender. After the frightening experience of the accident, the resulting physical, financial, and emotional hardships presented may make the road to recovery seem especially long.
It can be disheartening to learn that the insurance company may not have your best interests at heart. Insurance companies are often more concerned with protecting their own profit margins than with getting you the full amount of what you’re owed. It may be tempting to go with an insurance company’s initial settlement offer, but this may not take into account all of your needs.
Wagner Law will work to make sure you get every penny you’re owed. We will review all damages and losses incurred by your accident, including any of the following that apply to your case:
Lost income-earning opportunity
Needed car repair
Physical and emotional therapy needed for rehabilitation
A car accident is difficult enough. If another driver was responsible for your accident, you shouldn’t be stuck paying all the bills. Wagner Law can work to get you a fair settlement and re-establish some of your peace of mind.
