Los Angeles Rear End Collision Lawyers

One of the most common types of accidents to occur in urban locations such as Los Angeles is the rear-end collision. This accident most often occurs at an intersection, when a driver is following another vehicle too closely and fails to realize that the lead vehicle has stopped or slowed. Rear-ends can also be the result of a driver speeding, causing other drivers to be unable to gauge a safe gap in which to pull onto the roadway, as well as other causes. Contrary to popular belief, these accidents are often more than minor “fender-benders” as hundreds of individuals are killed in the U.S. each year as a result of rear-end collisions, and hundreds of thousands are injured.

If you’ve been injured in a rear-end collision in Los Angeles, you can seek compensation for the financial and emotional costs of your injury through California’s personal injury claims process. An experienced Los Angeles rear end collision lawyer from Kash Legal can provide guidance, expertise, and a number of services to assist you as you navigate this process.

Who Is At-Fault for a Rear-End Collision?

There are a lot of myths about rear-end collisions, including the notion that the driver in the following car is always liable for the accident. While it’s true that most rear-end accidents are the result of tailgating, improper lane changes, speeding, and other actions taken by the following car driver, there are certain circumstances where the lead car driver is at fault, such as:

  • The driver of the lead car pulled into a travel lane without there being a safe gap in traffic in which to do so, which is commonly referred to as “cutting off” another driver.
  • The driver of the lead car suddenly stopped for no reason in the middle of traffic.
  • The driver of the lead car was traveling in reverse when the accident occurred.

One of the many services an experienced car accident attorney can provide when you decide to seek compensation for the expenses and impacts of your injury is a determination of all sources of liability.

How to Obtain Compensation After a Rear-End Collision in a Los Angeles

Individuals who have been injured in a rear-end accident that was caused by another driver can seek compensation for monetary costs and quality-of-life impacts of their injury through California’s personal injury claims process. This process usually begins with a claim filed against the at-fault driver’s auto liability insurance policy. This claim will be assigned by the insurance company to a claims adjuster. 

The claims adjuster’s job is to analyze the claim and determine if compensation is owed to the client, and how much, if so. It should be noted that the claims adjuster is an employee of the insurance company who is hired to protect their bottom line. What they consider fair compensation for a rear-end accident in Los Angeles is often different from the amount of compensation the claimant needs to repay them for the out-of-pocket costs and emotional impacts of their injury.

If the at-fault party’s insurer fails to fairly compensate the claim either through paying it outright or negotiating a settlement that the claimant will accept, it can be filed as a personal injury lawsuit in civil court within the state’s two-year statute of limitations on personal injury claims. The lawsuit is a formal request for a judge or jury to hear the evidence and testimony in the case, make a determination on liability, and order the insurance company to provide a specific amount of compensation to the claimant.

The Services a Los Angeles Rear End Collision Lawyer Can Provide to Assist You With Your Claim

While those injured in rear-end accidents in Los Angeles are not required to hire an attorney in order to seek compensation through the personal injury claims process, an attorney plays a vital role in helping the claimant to navigate the claims process. Some of the services that a Los Angeles rear end collision attorney can provide include:

  • A free case evaluation, so potential claimants can have the opportunity to speak with a lawyer without obligation in order to learn more about the process and the strengths and weaknesses of their case.
  • A client-friendly contingent fee billing method that allows the claimant to wait to pay for the services of their attorney until after their claim has been compensated.
  • A determination of liability and insurance resources.
  • Management of communication with the at-fault party’s insurance provider in order to keep the conversation focused on acquiring a fair settlement offer.
  • Filing of a personal injury lawsuit within California’s statute of limitations, in order to protect the claimants right to use the court process to seek compensation.
  • Gathering the evidence and witness testimony needed to prove liability, as well as the documentation needed to justify the established value of the claim.
  • Assistance collecting the compensation owed as a result of a negotiated settlement or court decision, and satisfying any medical liens that were placed on these funds by group health insurers or health care providers who provided treatment of the claimant’s injuries.

Among the most important qualities an experienced Los Angeles rear end collision lawyer can bring to your claim are experience in the process and an understanding of the type of compensation that is needed after an injury has been incurred.
