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 accidents. We have many years of experience pursuing injury claims caused by rear end impacts. Here are some common examples of how rear-end collisions might take place:

  • The leading vehicle is forced to stop quickly, unable to give the following car a chance to stop. This can happen when the driver is distracted or their vision has been obstructed.
  • The following vehicle is driving too close to the leading vehicle. There is not enough distance between the vehicles for proper stopping procedure. This is often a sign of aggressive driving in what is known as “tailgating.”
  • The following vehicle is speeding or driving recklessly, preventing it from stopping in time and hitting the leading vehicle.
Injuries in a Rear-End Collision

There are a multitude of possible injuries that can occur to both the drivers and passengers of either vehicle involved in the accident, which may result in testing, surgery, therapy, medications, amputation, or infections, for which you should be compensated by the party at fault. These are the most common injuries sustained in a rear-end collision:

  • Neck injuries, including hyperextension of the vertebrae
  • Head trauma
  • Broken bones
  • Severed limbs
  • Back pain
  • Death
Seeking Compensation

Your compensation will generally be based upon the extent of your injuries, but that does not mean that you should let a seemingly innocuous accident slip by. Often, injuries present themselves after a collision, perhaps days, weeks, or months after, once our bodies have 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. For those with clear and evident injuries and for those with not so clear or evident injuries, our goal is to help you obtain the money you deserve, which should include the expenses you have come across due to the accident, as well as any income you have lost because of it, as well as your past and future pain and suffering. If there has been a fatality, our attorneys will be with the family every step of the way to help pursue a wrongful-death claim on behalf of their loved one.

Regardless of the extent of your injuries, you should act quickly. There are statutes of limitations for rear-end collisions in Miami. Generally you have four years after the date of the accident to file a lawsuit if you were injured in the crash and two years if someone died as a result of the accident. That’s why you need an experienced team of attorneys on your side who can swiftly and competently prepare your case and demand compensation for your losses. To discuss the details of your claim and to set up a free, confidential consultation, call us at 305-448-8585, or contact us online. We are available in English, Spanish, and Creole.

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
Highly recommending Carolyn Frank would be an understatement. Being careful as to whom I would give my case to as I had dedicated most of my adult life to one company. I needed someone who would work for me, value my case and my needs. Carolyn Frank and her valued staff met all of the above. From the first meeting I knew I was in the right office. Her knowledge, professionalism and what I would soon find to be outstanding dedication to my case from her and her staff were second to none. Marcos G.
Mr. Friedman was my choice after a dog bite attack. Him and his firm took on my case in a very professional matter without lacking empathy. I felt like he and his team personally cared for me and they kept me up to date on every step of the process. The outcome was great and I am very happy that I have chosen them. I already have recommended them to my friends and family and if you are looking for legal support I highly recommend a meeting with the firm. Any first time consultation is free, ( to my knowledge). So what do you have to lose. Give them a call! You'll be in great hands. Nora N.
Caroyln's expertise and compassion got me through a very trying period of my life. She is an excellent lawyer and human being. 5 Star all the way! Lois H.
I met Carolyn Frank about three years ago. Once I met her I knew she was the attorney I needed to handle my case.When we met with her the first time we were there for at least two hours. When I left her office I knew she was the right person to handle my case.At that time my case was 22 years old and I needed someone who knew what they were doing. This was a complex case and it fell under the Long shore Act..There are not many attorneys that handle this type of case in Florida. Mike P.
