Rear-End Accident Lawyer
Rely on our experienced legal team after your crash
Serious car accidents happen all the time. And some of the most common auto accidents we regularly deal with at our law firm are rear-end car accidents. Many people think rear-end accidents aren’t serious, particularly if there is not significant property damage involved. We know the truth.
We know that many rear-end car accident victims sustain serious injuries, including:
- Back injuries
- Head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck injuries
In particular, rear-end accident victims often sustain whiplash, a serious, painful neck injury when the victim’s brain is literally thrown forward and back against the walls of the skull due to the force of the rear-end impact.

Drivers who fail to stop in time often cause serious rear-end car accidents. And when they do, we can help you hold them accountable for their actions.
How our law firm can help you
You might think you don’t need a lawyer if another driver broke the law and crashed into the back of your vehicle. All you have to do is provide picture of the impact points and show the police and your insurance company, and they will take care of everything, right?
Don’t be so sure. Often, rear-end accidents turn out much more complicated than many people suspect. Sometimes, it’s because the driver who caused your crash denies doing anything wrong, claims you stopped short, or says the impact was minor, even though they hit you from behind. More often, the insurance company will try to downplay the extent of your injuries, especially in a low-impact crash, where there is not significant damage to the rear of your car.
Many insurance companies then try to use that information to reduce or deny your claim. That’s not right. That’s why we take such cases so seriously here. We believe you shouldn’t have to pay for someone else’s mistakes. Find out how a car accident lawyer can help you. Contact us and schedule your free case evaluation at our Rockville office.
