Rear-end Accidents: Should I Hire a Car Accident Attorney?


Rear-end Accidents:  Should I Hire a Car Accident Attorney?

If you have been injured in a car accident, finding the right attorney to handle the details of your case can be a challenging prospect. Online reviews, personal referrals, and local advertisements can be a good launch pad to begin your research; however, not all law firms are equipped to handle the complexity of your claim.

At the Shiner Law Group, our award-winning firm has the experience, resources, and first-hand knowledge of ’s roads to provide aggressive legal representation and secure the financial compensation you deserve.

Contact us by phone or visit us online to discuss your rights and responsibilities in a free case review. We have dedicated over 15 years to serving car accident victims in Palm Beach communities because we are firmly committed to protecting your legal and financial interests.

Obtaining a Legal Advantage

As Florida is a no-fault insurance state, the inconvenience of a collision goes far beyond the initial crash for many car accident victims. Per Florida law, drivers are required to maintain a minimum personal injury protection (PIP) insurance policy of $10,000; however, as some accidents may result in severe, life-threatening injuries, these coverage plans can become quickly exhausted. Victims must then pursue financial recovery for economic and non-economic losses through the at-fault party’s insurance company.

Insurance companies are uniquely motivated to satisfy the terms of an accident with minimal financial liability, so tactics to reduce, stall, or deny payouts are employed at the expense of the victim. By hiring an experienced car accident attorney, you can obtain the legal advantage–and peace of mind–to pursue a fair and just settlement for your injuries.

Additionally, in the event your respective insurance company fails to honor the terms of your policy, your attorney can also bring legal action against your provider for a breach of contract.

Common Physical Injuries Necessitating Medical Examination

Rear-ended collisions do not require significant property damage to be considered severe, as even the most minor accidents can lead to extensive medical treatment. If you or your loved one has been involved in a car accident, it is vital to seek an immediate medical evaluation to protect your health and ability to pursue legal action. Not all injuries manifest in the immediate aftermath of a collision, and forgoing medical examinations provides insurance companies with ammunition to undermine your legal efforts.

The Shiner Law Group identifies several examples of personal injury commonly associated with rear-ended collisions:

  • Whiplash;
  • Back injuries;
  • Head injuries, including traumatic brain injuries (TBIs);
  • Bodily injury;
  • Emotional trauma.

Rear-ended accidents can occur anywhere and often result from a following driver’s negligence; however, leading drivers can also be held at fault for making an unsafe lane change or drastically reducing their speed.
