Examples of Rear-End Collisions in Miami

Rear-end accidents can happen on any given road, at any time of day, and at any speed, which is what makes them one of the most common types of unavoidable accidents. At Friedman Rodman Frank & Estrada, our Miami car accident attorneys have many years of experience pursuing injury claims caused by rear end impacts. Below are examples of how rear-end collisions might take place:

  • A driver rear-ends another vehicle because they are distracted by their phone and fail to notice that traffic has stopped.
  • The leading car suddenly stops when a dog runs into the road, and the driver behind them isn’t paying attention, causing him to crash into the car ahead.
  • Wet road conditions cause a driver to lose control and slide into the back of another car, resulting in a rear-end accident.
  • A teenage driver accelerates too quickly at a green light, assuming the car in front will move faster than it actually does, crashing
Injuries in a Rear-End Collision

There are many possible injuries that can result from a rear-end collision, many of which require you to undergo evaluation, testing, surgery, therapy, and even amputation. The most common injuries in rear-end collisions include the following:

Not only are these injuries painful, but they also interrupt your life and can be incredibly costly. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that the average cost of medical care following a car accident is roughly $15,000. However, this is an average across all accidents, many of which are minor. For major accidents, medical expenses alone can easily reach into the $100,000s.

What Amount of Compensation Can a Rear-End Accident Victim Expect to Receive?

Every case is different, and any possible compensation award will depend on the extent of your injuries. However, even if the accident seemed minor, it’s important to get checked out by a doctor. Often, injuries might not become noticeable until days, weeks, or months after the accident once your body has had time to process the event. You should take every measure to ensure you are injury-free, even if there are no obvious signs of injury.

Regardless of how serious your injuries are, our goal is to help you obtain the money you deserve, which should include all your accident-related medical expenses, as well as lost wages, decrease in earning capacity, and past and future pain and suffering.

Client Reviews
Carolyn Frank and her firm represented me on a workers compensation injury case, under the defense base act. She did a excellent job from the moment I contacted her until 3 years later the case was settled. Every benefit I was entitled too, Carolyn fought hard to secure. E-mails and phone calls were always returned promptly. Definitely 5 star rating. Daniel
I can't express how grateful I am for Elizabeth Estrada, attorney, and Elizabeth Cantin, secretary, for all the hard work in order to defend me in my time of need. My lawyer and secretary spent time explaining each step and what was to be expected. Because of this I felt a part of the whole process and understood what was going on. Thank you so much for all your hard work!
