Atlanta Rear End Car Accident Attorneys
Efficient, Accessible, and Cost-Effective Services
Rear-end car accidents can cause long-term damage to all parties involved—especially
if victims decide not to seek professional support. If you or a loved
one have suffered from this type of car crash, do not try to tackle the
claim for reimbursement on your own. Instead, immediately get in contact
with our skilled Atlanta rear end car accident lawyers.
Even when you are in the midst of physical, emotional, and mental trauma
from the collision, insurance companies may not be motivated to help you.
Instead, they will seek to take advantage of your situation so they can
avoid any lawsuits, rather than fairly advocating for your needs. At
Holston & Huntley, our team is determined to support you against this injustice.
Call us today at (404) 620-3337 for a
free consultation. We can find the financial and legal resolution you need. We also offer
services in Spanish.
Common Causes of Rear-End Car Accidents
It is important to know some of the typical reasons that rear-end car accidents
occur. This will help prepare you for any lawsuits that may come your
way. Your legal representative can also determine the right angle for
getting you the reimbursement you deserve after an accident.
Some of the most common factors that lead to rear-end car accidents include:
One driver going too fast – Speeding is extremely dangerous, as there is often no way to safely
halt the vehicle in time
One car closely following another – If one car is tailgating another car that needs to make a sudden
stop, an accident may be inevitable
One driver making a risky or unsafe lane change – Quickly changing lanes without warning or signaling can cause other
vehicles to crash
Driving under the influence – Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a common, tragic
cause of an avoidable collision
Texting and driving – Using a phone can distract a driver from seeing what is ahead
of them, effectively preventing them from avoiding hazards
Proving Liability in Georgia
Under Georgia law, anyone who has driven into another vehicle must always
get out and offer assistance. However, the driver in the back of a two-car
accident is not automatically liable to pay compensation, which is why
it is necessary to document in detail every injury you have suffered.
You can use others’ eyewitness accounts and testimonies as well,
but it is especially helpful to get the official copies from the police
report, as this adds authority to your claim. Photos of skid marks, debris,
and the damage of both cars, taken from all angles, are critical. Finally,
make sure to take images of your own physical injuries, as well as injuries
of others in the car, to help support your claim.
