Rear End Car Collisions Lawyer in Northeast Philadelphia

Philadelphia Lawyer for Rear End Car Collisions

The most prevalent kind of accidents, by far, are Accidents Where One Vehicle Strikes the Other Car in the rear. In Philadelphia, these accidents make for the majority of claims asserted by individuals to insurance companies. If you were injured in a Car Accident and the crash was a Rear End Collision, you have a claim without fault. This means that no matter what the circumstances, if you are struck in the rear by another car, there is very little chance that the incident will be your fault and not the striking vehicle. Why is that? Well, you as a driver are responsible to keep your eyes on the road and in front of you at all times. When a person says that I struck the car in front because they stopped suddenly, this is typically incorrect. A person driving on the road must stay behind another moving vehicle with an assured clear distance. That means that if something like a sudden stop in front of you occurs, you have enough time to stop. When a person who strikes the vehicle in front claims that there was a sudden stop, it usually means that they took their eye off the road, and when they look back to the road in front of them, they saw that the car in front has there brake lights on or is stopped. The striking driver assumes that there was a sudden stop when in fact, they were not paying attention. Except in the most extreme circumstances, there is no defense in a motor vehicle accident where a Rear End Collision occurs.

Just because Someone Rear Ends Your Car, does not mean that the insurance company for the car that struck you will pay you for any injuries you receive. In the past 15 years we at The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C., have seen an increase in denials by insurance companies for Mild Impact Soft Tissue Injuries (M.I.S.T.) cases. In other words, even if the striking vehicle rear ends you, if the damage to the car is not readily visible, the insurance company will deny the claim citing that a person could not get hurt with no visible property damage. At Greg Prosmushkin, P.C., our experience team of lawyers and staff have successfully fought many cases where the property damage is minimal, yet the victim is hurt.
