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.
Dan Christensen is an Austin injury lawyer handling rear-end accident cases. Once retained, we will immediately acquire the police reports and other information relevant to liability. If the other driver was not cited, then it may be necessary to employ an accident reconstructionist and other experts in order to establish fault. If the insurance company does not offer a fair settlement then we will not hesitate to file a Petition in Court. We will use the discovery process to ensure that your case is ready for trial and we will keep you informed through each step of the process. We understand that you are facing a stressful situation and we will take your case seriously. Contact our office to speak with our attorneys.
