Rear-End Accidents

If you were hit from behind, you can demand justice. 

Rear-end crashes are among the most common types of car accidents in Charlotte. But nothing feels common about a rear-end accident when you’re involved in one. You may be stopped at a stop sign or red light at the intersection of I-85 and Freedom Drive when a texting driver crashes into your car from behind. A drunk driver may be speeding through North Davidson when he or she fails to stop before striking your vehicle. A serious truck accident can even occur on I-77 when traffic has suddenly stopped or slowed.

In these types of car accidents, our lawyers in Charlotte know the rear-most driver is almost always at fault. Injuries resulting from rear-end crashes can be serious, including serious neck and back injuries. But despite the physical, emotional and financial difficulty you experience after a crash, you may find the driver who hit you denies any wrongdoing. Insurance companies may try to downplay the seriousness of your injuries. It might not sound fair, but that’s how insurance companies typically deal with accident victims, especially when they don’t have representation.

What causes Charlotte rear-end accidents? We’ve found some causes to be more common than others in our decade protecting the rights of accident victims throughout North Carolina. Some of the most common causes of rear-end crashes include the following:

  • Distracted driving, such as a texting driver or somebody talking on a cell phone
  • Drunk drivers who have slow reaction times and lack judgment
  • Speeding drivers who are unable to stop their vehicle in time
  • Fatigued drivers who fall asleep while driving

Even the most minor of rear-end crashes can result in a painful recovery process. Your injuries may require months of physical therapy. Medical bills may add up and you may be unable to return to work. When you’ve done nothing to cause your accident, you shouldn’t have to pay the bill. You need a car accident attorney on your side, aggressively pursuing compensation to cover the true long-term cost of your accident.
