Rear-end collisions are among the most common types of motor vehicle accidents. They occur most commonly in slow-speed situations at intersections, but they can also occur at high speeds, as when one driver rear-ends another driver on the highway. Even when they occur at slower speeds, rear-end accidents can cause severe injuries and property damage.

Proving Causation in Rear-End Collisions

Traffic laws require every driver to remain at a safe distance from the next driver forward.

Although this can make a rear-end collision case appear to be a foregone conclusion, the fact is, skilled legal representation is important for getting the best outcome possible in your case. In addition to tailgating, distracted driving and drunk driving are common causes of rear-end car accidents. We have substantial experience in these cases and we know how to demonstrate what caused your injuries.

Our top team of lawyers will take immediate action to begin the investigations and the case preparation. We work with accident reconstructionists to establish the fault of defendants, expert medical witnesses to establish the full extent of our clients’ medical costs and other experts to help bolster our clients’ cases. We will do everything we can to help you get the full compensation available to you under the law.

We are Illinois’ largest workers’ compensation and personal injury law firm and handle serious injuries and wrongful death claims arising out of rear-end accidents. Whether you have suffered whiplash, spinal cord injuries, amputations, brain injuries or the loss of someone you love, we have the legal experience and knowledge to help you obtain whatever compensation is available to you in your case.
