Rear-end crashes can be surprisingly difficult cases
You might expect rear-end accidents to be open and shut cases. After all, the driver in the rear vehicle is presumed to be at fault, and the insurance company is supposed to take care of the rest.
But these cases are rarely as simple as you'd expect. Sometimes, liability for the accident is disputed. An insurance company may argue that you stopped short, failed to signal or otherwise did something to cause the crash. More frequently, an insurance company will dispute the extent of your injuries, especially if the crash happened at a low speed. They'll argue that a low-impact collision could not have possibly caused such a serious injury.
Juries tend to be skeptical of rear-end accident victims, and insurance companies know it. That's why your first step should be to contact an experienced attorney who knows how to level the playing field.
Put a proven fighter on your side
As soon as you contact us and retain our firm to represent you, we'll go to work to build the strongest possible case. We'll interview witnesses, review physical evidence from the crash scene and pore over accident reports looking for critical information. When necessary, we'll retain experts who can speak to the extent of your injuries and the way they have affected your life.
In most cases, we're able to reach a settlement with the insurance company that meets your needs and provides you with closure. When that is not possible, we are ready to take them to trial and make your case in front of a judge and jury. Indiana juries aren't fooled by smoke and mirrors; they want to see evidence. Our thorough preparation and relentless advocacy for our victims make us a force to be reckoned with in court. We have a proven track record in rear-end accident cases, including $421,000 for a client who was rear-ended by a truck.
