Rear End Collisions

One of the most common types of car accidents is the rear-end collision. It is also a type of case in which victims are often injured twice: first, the property damage to their vehicle, and second, the physical injury suffered at the hands of the person who rear-ended them. At the North Carolina law firm of Powers Law Firm, our lawyers will serve as zealous advocates to ensure that you are treated fairly.

Most cars today are designed to withstand the forces involved in a rear-end collision. However, the following injuries can still occur even when the vehicle appears to be only slightly damaged:

In some cases, the injuries are caused by the very systems that are designed to protect us, such as seat belts and air bags.

Insurance adjusters often assume that if your car is not severely damaged, you must not be severely injured. As a result, they will often try to pressure you into accepting a low-ball settlement offer. However, you may incur significant ongoing medical expenses, chronic pain and lost wages from your injury that insurance will not cover.

When you bring your rear-end collision claim to Powers Law Firm, we make certain that you understand all of your options. We fully explain the legal, medical and financial issues that are involved in your case so you can effectively participate in decisions that affect your future. You should never allow yourself to be pressured into accepting a settlement before you have received competent and compassionate legal advice.
