Who is at fault in a rear-end accident?
In a rear-end accident, the driver in back is almost always at fault. There is little a victim can do to get out of the way of this type of collision. Common rear-end crash scenarios include:
- Hit from behind at a stopped traffic light.
- Rear-ended by an aggressive driver.
- Crashed into by a distracted driver.
- Hit by a speeding vehicle unable to stop or slow down in time.
However, the driver in front may be at fault if they hit the brakes for no apparent reason, cut another vehicle off too closely, or the vehicle had defects, like broken taillights, that caused the crash.
Can I file a rear-end car accident lawsuit in New Jersey?
In most cases, yes, you can file a lawsuit seeking damages for a rear-end collision in New Jersey. However, only an attorney can tell you whether it’s in your interest to file a lawsuit. That’s why we recommend contacting our firm as soon as possible.
How can a rear-end accident attorney help me?
Again, in a rear-end accident, fault is usually straightforward – but that doesn’t mean getting full compensation will be. In some circumstances, even if you were rear-ended, the insurance company for the at-fault driver may try to blame you for the crash. More likely, they will downplay the extent of your injuries and try to minimize the value of your claim.
Our attorneys will investigate your accident and determine the full value of your injury-related expenses, including medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other costs. We know how to deal with the insurance companies in negotiations and, if necessary, at trial. Our team will take care of the legal process while you focus on getting better.
Rear-end accidents are not minor. We are serious about your results.
Don't try to take on the insurance company and their lawyers by yourself. Our New Jersey car accident lawyers can be by your side throughout the claim process fighting for the results you deserve.
