Rear End Car Accidents

Rear End Accident Lawyer In Delaware

Delaware Rear End Collision Attorney

A read end accident often leads to soft tissue injury and under Delaware law the driver who struck the car in front is almost always liable for the accident. Even if the car in front stopped very quickly or a car pulled in front, the trailing driver is always liable because they have a duty to leave enough room so that no matter what the driver in front does there is still room to stop. You should always have photos of the cars and the scene of the accident. Use your cell phone camera!

Sometimes, a rear end car crash will not immediately result in a debilitating, catastrophic or life threatening injury as head-on collisions frequently do. The injuries may manifest later, several days after the accident occurs. This is due to the fact that rear end collisions frequently occur at lower speeds than head on collisions or being sideswiped at an intersection. However, even at a lesser speed a rear end crash can cause very serious and very severe injuries in the future. Injuries sustained in a rear end auto accident should not be ignored as they may hinder your ability to work, live & perform life activities on a daily basis. This is where the skill and expertise of an experienced Delaware Car Accident Lawyer may be very beneficial in helping to get you the maximum amount of compensation and benefits you are entitled to.
