Rear End Collisions

Massachusetts Rear End Car Accident Lawyers

Rear end accidents are some of the most common vehicle crashes nationwide. However, they can also cause serious injury and property damage. These collisions happen when the front end of one car hits the rear end of another vehicle. More than 2.5 million rear end accidents are reported each year, according to the National Safety Council. Often referred to as "whiplash accidents," these crashes commonly cause spinal injuries. They can also result in numerous other injuries, and may even be fatal.

A person injured in a rear end accident may have the right to seek damages from the responsible driver or other party. That includes medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and pain and suffering, among other damages. Obtaining such recovery often means dealing with insurance companies and may require a lawsuit. The Yarmouth personal injury lawyers at the Law Office of John C. Manoog III combine more than 146 years of experience representing clients in wide range of injury and accident cases, including those related to rear end collisions. We are dedicated to helping clients get their lives back on track after a crash by seeking the maximum financial recovery, either by negotiating with an insurance company, or litigating the matter in a court of law.

Causes of Rear End Crashes

There is a nearly endless array of factors that can lead to a rear end accident or multi-car pileup. Most are related to careless or inattentive behavior that takes a driver's eyes off the road, such as:

  • Cell phone use
  • Texting
  • Reading
  • Changing radio stations
  • Eating
  • Programming navigation systems
  • Loading CDs
  • Grooming or looking in the mirror

Regardless of the reason for a crash, under Massachusetts law, the responsible driver is liable for the injuries he or she causes if the collision arose from a failure to exercise reasonable care. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help guide an injured person through the legal recovery process and fight for the client's right to financial recovery.

  • Medical bills

  • Lost wages
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Emotional Distress
  • Psychological counseling
  • Pain and suffering
