Rear-End Accident Lawyers in Chicago
Our attorneys fight for the best possible outcome in your case
Rear-end accidents are very common. When one vehicle crashes into another from behind, it can lead to serious injuries. If the driver behind you was negligent, you deserve compensation. Recovering compensation can be complicated. That is why you need a car accident attorney from Keating Law Offices, P.C.
Depending on the situation, rear-end accidents can cause a wide range of injuries. These include whiplash, broken bones, wrist and arm injuries, head and neck injuries, and back and spinal cord injuries. Recovery can take months or even years. In some cases, victims may be left with a permanent disability.
There is also a financial impact. Medical expenses can add up very quickly. Some people can’t go back to work right away because of their injuries, meaning there is less income coming in. There are still the usual bills that need to be paid. Many people find it difficult to make ends meet after being hurt in a car accident.
Attorneys who hold negligent parties accountable
In these types of accidents, the driver of the rear vehicle is generally considered to be at fault. It isn’t always that simple. For example, the other driver may claim that you stopped suddenly in front of them. This is important because if you are partially at fault, it can impact the amount of compensation you receive.
That is fine with the insurance companies, because they are looking for any excuse to pay you less. Their main concern is the bottom line. Paying out less money helps to keep their profits high. There are other tactics they use, too. They may question the extent of your injuries or make you a lowball settlement offer.
