Las Vegas Rear-End Crash Lawyer
Rear-end crashes are common, especially in areas with lots of stop-and-go traffic like the Las Vegas strip or crowded streets or highways during rush hour. More than a quarter of all crashes involve rear-end collisions, and while most rear-end crashes aren’t fatal, they can still cause severe injury. The fact that rear-end crashes aren’t viewed as seriously as other kinds of accidents means that accident victims who are seriously injured can face a harder battle trying to get fairly compensated by the negligent driver’s insurance company. Cameron Law can help in these situations. Our personal injury law firm focuses exclusively on helping accident victims hold the negligent parties accountable for the damage they’ve caused, proving critical issues such as negligence and fault and the severity of the injury. Call our experienced Las Vegas rear-end crash lawyer today for a free consultation to find out how we can help you receive maximum compensation for your accident claim.
Help With Serious Injuries After a Rear-End Crash
Cars today are built to absorb the shock of a severe impact without showing much damage to the vehicle. That’s great for the car, but the people inside the car can still get seriously hurt. People in a car that is hit from behind will find their torso, head and neck propelled forward and backward at speeds over two and a half times the speed of the vehicle that hit them. This whipping motion can cause painful and debilitating injuries, but the insurance adjuster that comes out and looks at your vehicle would have you believe otherwise. If the damage to the car isn’t severe, and your x-rays don’t show any broken bones, the insurance company is apt to say the accident wasn’t very bad and your personal injury damages, if any, are minimal. If you are experiencing pain or restricted movement, though, you know better. At Cameron Law, we have the knowledge, skills and experience necessary to document an injury after a rear-end crash and prove your need for medical care and a meaningful amount of compensation for the harm done to you. Whether you suffered sprains, strains or muscle tears; facial lacerations, cuts or bruises; broken bones; head or brain injuries; whiplash or other injuries, you can count on the team at Cameron Law to see that you are properly taken care of.
Signs of Whiplash to Watch out for After a Rear-End Crash
Unless you suffered a fracture or deep cut in a rear-end collision, you might not be treated at the scene or taken to the hospital. Still, it’s important to follow up with a doctor soon after the accident for a thorough examination. This is especially important if you hit your head on the steering wheel, window or dashboard, but even if not, you could still have a spinal or internal injury that could get worse if not promptly diagnosed. Also, if you experience any symptoms of head injury or whiplash, you could be in need of prompt medical attention. Symptoms of whiplash include:
- Neck pain or stiffness
- Limited range of motion in the head and neck
- Blurred vision
- Loss of memory
- Pain or tingling sensations in your shoulder, arm or back
Seeing a doctor promptly will help ensure you get properly treated and also document your injury and link it to the crash so that the insurance company doesn’t later claim you were not hurt or got injured some other way.
Cameron Law Can Help You Determine Fault After a Rear-End Crash
Conventional wisdom says that the rear driver is always responsible for a rear-end collision, but conventional wisdom isn’t always right. The driver in front could have slammed on the brakes unexpectedly because they were texting while driving and not watching the road, or a pedestrian could have negligently run into the road and caused an unavoidable wreck. Most of the time, though, it’s up to every driver to leave sufficient distance between themselves and the car in front and drive at a reasonable speed so they can stop safely if they need to, even in an emergency. Cameron Law can help you sort out complicated questions of who was at fault, including situations where both drivers are being held partly responsible, which can reduce or defeat your claim for compensation if not managed appropriately.
