Stamford, Bridgeport & Danbury Rear-End Accident Attorney Protects Your Rights and Interests

Looking out for your rights in Stamford, Bridgeport and Danbury

Rear-end accidents are the cause of a large number of injuries and fatalities every year and are responsible for substantial property damage. We understand how stressful it is to be the victim of a rear-end collision, and we can assist you in pursuing your claim aggressively and efficiently to obtain full and fair compensation for your injuries and losses.

Who is at fault in a rear-end accident?

In most rear-end accidents, the driver of the car that collided with the rear-end of your vehicle is usually the one at fault. Many things can cause a rear-end accident, including any of the following:

  • Following too close or tailgating
  • Inattentive driving
  • Speeding
  • Intersection collision
  • Failure to yield
  • Hydroplaning

In rare circumstances, the driver of the vehicle that was rear-ended may be found to be at fault. For example, if a driver makes a sudden, unsafe lane change or an unexpected stop that results in impact with the car in back, it may be determined that the car in the front, or the leading driver, is the one who is at fault.

If you were involved in a road or traffic accident that resulted in a rear-end collision, we can help. At The Reinken Law Firm, we use our years of experience handling auto accident claims and our extensive knowledge of this area of law to help you thoroughly assess the circumstances of your case.

Rear-end accidents and soft-tissue damage

Fault in a rear-end accident is often easily determined, as fault can usually be attributed to the car that collided with the rear-end of the vehicle in front of it. The challenge in a claim involving a rear-end collision more often lies in determining the extent of the damage suffered by the victim. Rear-end collisions can result in whiplash or other soft-tissue injuries, which can sometimes have long-term consequences.

Soft-tissue injuries are often difficult to diagnose, and prognosis can be difficult to predict. The costs of recovery can be substantial. Insurance companies, on the other hand, are often reluctant to admit the extensive medical care and rehabilitation that soft-tissue damage can sometimes require. We offer you the experience and skilled representation you need to build a solid case for full and fair compensation for your injuries and losses.
