Advice Regarding Rear-End Accidents

Rear-end collisions occur so frequently that people don't always take them seriously. Even fender-bender accidents involving vehicles traveling at lower speeds can cause painful injuries and chronic health problems.

The problem with rear-end collisions is that injuries may not be diagnosed until days or weeks later. We have heard of and seen many car crash cases involving drivers and passengers who returned to work or school right after a car accident — only to experience serious symptoms later. Very often, accident victims or their family members assume that because no one was bleeding or rushed to the hospital in an ambulance, everything must be OK.

What To Do If You Have Been Hurt (At All) In A Rear-End Collision

Every personal injury case is different and should be evaluated by an experienced attorney. The lawyers at King Law Firm in Ocala, Florida, have extensive experience with car accidents of many kinds. We help injured clients and their families protect their rights and their health after accidents have occurred.

If you or a family member was involved in a rear-end accident, you can take a few steps to protect yourself:

  • Get medical help: If you are in pain, see a doctor. This will do two important things: get you the treatment you need and demonstrate proof of your injury.
  • Get driver names and witnesses: Document as much as you can. Getting insurance cards is a must.
  • Get photographs if you can: Use your phone to photograph your vehicle damage and other relevant details.
  • Talk to an attorney: If you or a family member was hurt because of someone else's actions, it is critical to talk to an experienced personal injury attorney.
