Aggressive Representation In Florida Rear-End Accident Claims

The most common car accident is the rear-end collision or rear-ender. Generally, these accidents are nonfatal, but when the striking car is traveling at high speed, fatalities do occur. Rear-enders happen in various situations, including:

  • Stop-and-go traffic
  • When a car is stopped at a traffic signal or stop sign
  • When slower traffic merges with faster traffic
  • When the car behind suddenly accelerates
  • When the driver of the car behind is distracted by texting or some other activity

The Most Likely Injuries

The most common result of a rear-end accident is soft-tissue damage sometimes called whiplash. The term whiplash has been used so casually that many think it is a minor injury. But in fact, it often has long-lasting consequences — headaches, immobility, chronic pain.

Other common rear-ender injuries include spinal cord damage, broken vertebrae and brain damage from the head striking the windshield or steering wheel. All of these are major injuries. Some will last a lifetime. Some will result in the victim's death.

At The Briggs Law Firm of Ocala, Florida, we have extensive experience representing clients who have been injured in rear-end collisions. Because of his experience working for insurance carriers, lawyer Randy Briggs knows exactly how far insurance companies are willing to go to wrap up your case.
