If you have been injured in a rear end collision, you may think that you have an open and shut case. Obviously, the other driver is at fault if they hit the back of your car.
Unfortunately, it is not that simple. Even in cases where negligence is not difficult to prove, an accident victim must be able to establish the nature of their injuries and provide evidence that details the damages they have sustained - which may include the cost of future medical expenses. If the other driver does not have insurance, you may need to sue your own insurer to seek recovery. If the other driver is a commercial truck driver, they may have more than one type of insurance coverage from which recovery may be obtained.
Contacting an attorney immediately after an accident is always the best way to protect your rights. Our personal injury lawyers can perform a full review of your case, investigate the cause of the accident if necessary and present evidence of your injuries to seek the full and fair compensation you deserve. In some cases, such as an uninsured motorist claim, you may need an attorney to pursue compensation from your own insurance company.
