Rear End Collision Attorney



rear end injury
The risk of rear-end collisions is particularly great in city traffic where traffic patterns create "stop and go" traveling. 75 percent of accidents recorded by the police occur at speeds below 30 mph.


But, if you are rear-ended in Florida, and have suffered injuries as a result,is that driver behind you automatically at fault?


Under Florida law “when the defendant produces evidence which fairly and reasonably tends to show that the rear fact is not presumed,” the driver may not be liable.


If you have been a victim of a rear end collision, it is important that you hire an attorney immediately after a rear-end accident. The days after the car accident are crucial to investigate whether the at-fault driver will be raising one of the three fact patterns that could rebut their presumed negligence.


Common rear end collision injuries are whiplash, cervical or neck injuries, baqck injuries, cuts and abrasions. If the seat back in the car failed in the impact, injuries may be more severe.
