Compared to fatal car accidents, rear-end collisions may seem minor. However, injuries sustained when you are rear ended or involved with a "fender bender" are often more serious than they at first appear. Often the severity of injuries may not manifest themselves until time has passed, as in the case of whiplash or other head, back and neck injuries.
If you are hit from behind or T-boned in the side, you need an experienced attorney to protect your right to compensation. At Domnitz & Skemp , our lawyers have won substantial verdicts and settlements for our clients. Call us for a free consultation to learn what we can do for you.
To-do list when in a rear-end collision
As with any automobile accident, there are certain steps you must take to protect yourself. It is essential to document the crash by contacting law enforcement from the scene of the accident before any cars are moved. If possible, taking photographs of the damage to the vehicles and the accident scene as close to the time of the accident as possible is always helpful. Also, be sure to collect the contact information, insurance information and vehicle license plate number of the other driver and contact information of any witnesses. And, of course, if you have been injured, it is important to obtain prompt medical treatment and to follow your doctor's orders.
Through experience, we have found our clients receive substantially larger financial damages if they work with an attorney rather than trying to settle on their own. Insurance company statistics also support this common sense conclusion. Before speaking with the other person's insurance company, consult with one of our lawyers . The insurance adjuster is not working on your behalf, but we are. We ensure they do not trample on your rights or take unfair advantage in a time of crisis. At the proper time we negotiate with them for an appropriate settlement or take them to court should discussions break down.
