Baton Rouge Personal Injury Lawyer Experienced in Rear-end Collisions
“Fender-benders” are usually what people think of when they hear of a rear-end collision. However, serious injuries and even death can occur from a rear-end car accident.
Often, the injured victim is stopped and waiting at a red light or stop sign when rear-ended. The human spine is not made to withstand the force exerted against it from even a rear-end collision with a compact car, as the average weight of compact cars is 2,919 pounds.
Roughly 1.7 million rear-end collisions take place in the United States each year. Of these nearly 2 million accidents, about 1,700 people die and another 500,000 are injured in the crashes.
Rear end collisions are serious car accidents and need to be treated as such. Insurance companies treat rear-end collisions with the utmost seriousness. Usually, the moment after a rear-end collision is reported to an insurance company, it dispatches a team of lawyers and adjusters who immediately begin taking all steps necessary to protect the insurance company’s interests (not yours!). The insurance companies try to make things overly difficult on innocent claimants rear-ended by their insureds, by taking full advantage of the claimant’s lack of knowledge of the laws and the insurance policy.
