Rear-End Collisions

Rear-End Collision Lawyers

Rear-end collisions are one of the most common types of car accidents, often the result of a vehicle suddenly slowing or stopping and the vehicle behind not being able to react in time. Unfortunately, rear-end collisions can cause serious injuries, including back and neck injuries, broken bones, concussions, and so much more. They can even be fatal in extreme cases

If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of one of these accidents, you need the assistance of an experienced Northwest Florida rear-end collision attorney. At Perry & Young, our lawyers have the experience and skill needed to effectively pursue maximum compensation for our clients. We understand the hardship that an accident can place on someone, and we strive to limit that hardship by ensuring that you are properly compensated for your losses. We have law offices located in Panama City, Panama City Beach, Marianna, and Tallahassee, and we are licensed to practice in Florida, Georgia, and Alabama.

What to Do After a Rear-End Collision

Many visitors to our area are unfamiliar with the roads they are navigating. They may make hasty decisions when it comes to switching lanes and exiting off the highway. This is a common cause of rear-end accidents. In Northwest Florida, rear-end accidents happen on Highway 98, Interstate 10, and Highways 77, 79, 231, and 331 on a regular basis.

If you are involved in one of these collisions, follow the following steps:

  • If you are able, provide medical aid to anyone who is seriously injured.
  • Call 911 and report the accident to get paramedics and law enforcement to the scene.
  • Remain at the accident scene and do not move any vehicles involved.
  • Take pictures of the accident scene, including documenting all damage to your vehicle. Also, take pictures of any relevant traffic control apparatuses, such as speed limit signs, stop signs, or traffic lights.
  • Have yourself medically examined by paramedics on the scene.
  • Exchange your contact and insurance information with any drivers involved who are capable of doing so.
  • Request a copy of the police report from law enforcement on the scene.

All of these steps are extremely important for protecting your rights in the aftermath of an accident.

If you or a family member is involved in an accident, we recommend that those who have been injured in rear-end collisions seek medical attention if they have even the slightest injury, ache, or pain. If you or a loved one are complaining of neck, back, or any other type of pain following a rear-end collision, you need to be medically examined immediately. Neck and back injuries, as well as brain injuries, can worsen and become problematic long after an accident occurs, and it is important to document the event at the time of the accident in order to establish the original cause of the injury, as well as responsibility.

Even though there was no blood or broken bones at the scene of the accident, a head, neck, back, or joint injury can last a lifetime.
