Brooklyn Rear-End Collision Lawyer
Not every rear-end collision is a mere fender-bender
It is true that many rear-end collisions, particularly those that happen on lower-speed urban and suburban streets, wind up injuring your vehicle more than anything else. But consider this: a whiplash injury, the most common type of injury associated with a hit from behind, can cause chronic neck pain. And in fact, medical care, disability, lost work days, loss of productivity and litigation costs associated with whiplash have been estimated at up to $30 billion a year.
At the law firm of Bisogno & Meyerson, LLP, we believe that any accident that causes an injury deserves a discussion. When you schedule a free consultation with a Brooklyn car Rear End Collision Lawyer from our law firm, we can discuss your options. Working with an experienced attorney may be to your advantage, as insurance companies often devalue the full cost of a whiplash injury — and the full severity of acceleration-deceleration injuries are not fully realized for days, weeks or months following an accident. We fight to make sure that you get the compensation you need.
Aggressive drivers may cause even more serious injuries
Not every rear-end collision happens at speeds under 25 miles per hour. As drivers become more aggressive or distracted by everything from tuning the radio to texting, you may be rear-ended by a car traveling 70 miles per hour or more. Tailgating on highways can turn to disaster if a car has to swerve or stop suddenly to avoid an object in the road or slow down quickly because of a traffic jam. A driver who is tailgating or following too close — especially one who is not paying attention — can hit you quickly. A 3,000-pound car traveling at 70 miles per hour can release more than 15 million pounds of force, causing catastrophic or even fatal injuries.
Unfortunately, no matter how careful you are, you can seldom control the actions of another driver. Certainly, you should move out of the way of reckless drivers and not engage in any games of road rage. And if you are injured in a rear-end collision, rollover or any other type of car or motor vehicle accident, you deserve to recover your damages.
We are committed to making sure that you receive full and fair compensation, whether through tough negotiations or litigation.
