Rear End Collision Injuries in Texas
El Paso Auto Accident Injury Lawyer
Read-end collisions happen every day with consequences that range from
relatively minor vehicle damage to catastrophic and life-changing injuries.
Many of these collisions are caused by overly aggressive and distracted
driving, and in the majority of cases, there is a basic assumption that
fault lies with the driver who hit the other vehicle from behind. Maintaining
a safe following distance and being prepared to stop are two basic rules
of the road.
If you have been injured in an accident, schedule a free, no-risk consultation
and discuss your rights with an experienced El Paso personal injury lawyer.
Insurance companies are often quick to try and defend these cases or push
for low settlements by describing rear-end collisions as "low-impact"
accidents. At the Law Offices of Ruben Ortiz, our lawyers are dedicated
to assisting our clients who have been injured in rear-end collisions
and other types of accidents in El Paso. We often work with reconstruction
engineers, medical experts and other specialists to determine the full
impact of your car accident injury.
El Paso Rear-End Collision Injuries
The most common injuries that happen as a result of rear-end collisions
are neck and back injuries, including whiplash that comes from being suddenly
thrown forward. Knee and ankle injuries also happen frequently, since
many drivers and passengers brace against the impact with their legs.
While it is common for people who feel neck or back pain after an accident
to assume that the pain will go away on its own, many such injuries will
not heal without treatment, and delaying the decision to see a doctor
could limit the recovery process. It should also be a priority to speak
with a lawyer about protecting your legal rights to compensation.
