If you have been injured in a rear-end collision, fault may not be a disputed issue in your case, unless you stopped on a roadway for no reason. However, the extent of your injuries may be an issue. Insurance companies tend to minimize injuries, especially if your vehicle does not show extensive damage. If your vehicle does not show significant damage, the insurance company will argue that you could not have suffered significant injuries.
At the law firm of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos, our lawyers will help you recover compensation for everything you have lost in a rear-end collision or other type of car crash: medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and any permanent disability that may result. We act fast and work diligently to protect your interests at every stage of the legal process.

Understanding Injuries in a Rear-End Collision
Car bumpers are designed to withstand impacts in rear-end collisions. Unfortunately, your body is not. Even though your vehicle may not show heavy damage, your body could pay the price for the impact.
Any time you suffer a car accident injury, it’s important to seek proper medical care and follow your doctor’s treatment plan for your recovery. You may assume that you will recover your health in time. However, injuries such as neck and back pain can affect you for years into the future and may even result in permanent disability.
The insurance company may make you an offer to settle your case. However, you should never accept an offer until you know the full extent of your injury. Only then will you know how it will affect your life.
