If you have been injured in a rear-end collision, it is in your best interest to contact an experienced attorney. Insurance companies may try to settle for less than what you deserve, or argue that your wounds were not the result of your accident.
At the Law Offices of Stephen D. Walsh, we are committed to assisting residents along the Boston North Shore garner the damages they are entitled to under the law. Our rear-end collisions attorney has more than four decades of legal experience, and is prepared to advocate forcefully on your behalf.
Assessing Your Injury
Many serious injuries are the result of rear-end crashes that occur at intersections. Even low speed impacts can be incredibly destructive, with the potential to cause:
- Whiplash or other soft tissue damage
- Slipped or herniated discs
- Nerve damage
- Back strains or sprains
- Blunt-force trauma
- Bruises, abrasions and broken bones
Many of these injuries may not be immediately evident. In some cases, it can take days or weeks before a victim realizes he or she has been hurt. That said, it is critical to seek medical care as soon as possible following an accident. A full examination by your primary care provider can help determine what level of damages you may be entitled to, and ensure you receive adequate care.
Constructing Your Case
When you are struck from behind, the responsible party is easy to discern. Insurance companies almost always admit fault in rear-end crashes. However, this does not mean that they are prepared to pay what is owed. Company representatives will argue that you were not hurt, or that your medical treatment was excessive.
In short, insurers will try to confuse and minimize the issue at hand. At the Law Offices of Stephen D. Walsh, we do not tolerate this practice. Our lawyer will stand his ground and convince opposing counsel that your injury resulted from the crash, or that the crash aggravated a pre-existing condition.
In every instance, we will help you understand your rights and make sure that these rights are protected. We know that an injury can affect more than just your body. It can strain your personal relationships or impair your ability to work.
