There are several situations that can lead to a rear-end collision. One may be rear-ended or hit from behind at a stoplight. Another maybe when a driver is following too close and not paying attention to what is ahead of them.
The immediate step in each of these situations should be to contact an attorney as soon as possible. Your lawyer will then contact the negligent driver’s insurance company so that they will deal with your counsel directly. Counsel will then acquire the accident reports, witness statements, and your medical records to establish the amount for which you should be compensated. A demand for payment will then be sent to the insurance company. If a settlement cannot be reached, your attorney will proceed with a lawsuit.
