There are several situations which can lead to a rear-end collision. One may be rear-ended or hit from behind at a stop light. One may be the victim of a driver who is following too close and not paying attention to what is ahead of them. Another example is one being hit at a stop sign. The immediate step in each of these situations should be to contact an attorney as soon as possible. Your lawyer will then contact the negligent driver’s insurance company so that they will deal with your counsel directly. Counsel will then acquire the accident reports, witness statements, and your medical records to establish the amount for which you should be compensated. A demand for payment will then be sent to the insurance company. If settlement cannot be reached then it will be necessary to proceed with a lawsuit.
