San Antonio Rear-End Car Accident Lawyers

Advocacy In Rear-End Car Crashes

Rear-end car wrecks are some of the “easiest” negligence lawsuits that a lawyer can handle for his or her clients, in terms of figuring out what happened and who was likely at fault. But that’s where the word “easy” ends.

Let’s take a clear-cut case: You’re stopped at a red light. Out of nowhere a drunk driver plows into you from behind. There was no way you could avoid it. The wreck sends you to the hospital with serious injuries and a long recovery that leaves you with substantial medical bills, lost income, and significant pain. Perhaps you’ll make a full recovery in a few months; maybe you will never fully recover.

Either way, the drunk or otherwise negligent driver and his or her insurance company aren’t going to just hand over all the financial compensation you’re going to need, no questions asked. You’re going to need an attorney. For a free consultation, contact us today at 210-340-0900 to discuss your options.

The Advocacy You Need Even In ‘Clear-Cut’ Rear-End Crashes

If you’ve been injured in a rear-end car accident, it’s likely – but not guaranteed – that you’ll get a better outcome if you have an attorney representing you.

Here are two things to keep in mind:

  • Soft-tissue injury: Even in relatively minor rear-end car crashes, the insurance company might make you an offer that seems good at first glance, but you should not sign anything unless you understand all the facts, including what it will take for you to make a full recovery. You may not feel pain from soft tissue injury for quite a while, and if you’ve signed away your rights, by then it’s too late to do anything about it.
  • Serious or catastrophic injury: You want to extrapolate out into the future – all future medical treatment and bills that you will incur as a result of the car accident, as well as your altered lifestyle. In cases of serious injury, first offers from insurance companies are too low, and they know it. They will take pains to protect their bottom line and payout less than you deserve, not because they don’t like you, but because they’re running a business.

Our approach has always been to wait until the time is right to settle the case. We don’t push for early settlement just to generate fees for ourselves. And if we cannot get a good, fair offer from the other side, we will take your case to trial.
