Orangeburg Rear End Accident Lawyer

Rear end collisions are a common type of car accident. Many motorists are seriously injured in this type of wreck, with those seated in the car up ahead often suffering the more painful injuries. The Stanley Law Group can represent anyone seeking financial compensation after a car wreck. Rear end collisions have many causes, with tailgating and driver distraction two of the most prevalent. Contact our firm today to speak with an Orangeburg rear end accident lawyer in a private consultation.

Your Ability to Receive Compensation

Passengers involved in a rear end collision suffer common injuries, including:

  • Whiplash
  • Concussions
  • Facial injuries
  • Chest injuries
  • Rib fractures
  • Hand and arm fractures
  • Shoulder dislocation
  • Back injuries

In the typical rear-end collision, one car comes up behind and crashes into the car in front. A common misconception is that the car behind is always at fault. However, what matters is who failed to drive with sufficient care.

Often, the driver of the car in the back is to blame for tailgating, speeding, driving too fast for conditions, or driving while distracted. A fatigued or intoxicated driver could also fall asleep. These are examples of negligence which make a motorist liable for an accident.

But in some cases, the driver of the car up ahead is at fault. This driver might have cut someone off or engaged in brake checking. In these situations, they can be responsible even if their vehicle gets hit.

South Carolina recognizes that sometimes both drivers are to blame. Under the law, a motorist’s contributory negligence won’t prevent financial recovery so long as it is equal to or less than the defendant’s negligence. In other words, you can be 50% to blame but not any more if you hope to receive compensation. Anyone over 50% to blame will walk away with nothing.

Damages in a Rear End Collision

At The Stanley Law Group, our experienced lawyers will negotiate to receive as much compensation as is allowed in South Carolina. Work closely with your lawyer to:

  • Document your medical bills and other expenses. We can request financial compensation for medical care to treat your injuries, like whiplash.
  • Prove any lost income. We might also request financial compensation for income loss as you recover.
  • Share information about your car repairs. We can request that the defendant pay to have your car fixed when they caused the accident.
  • Discuss how your injuries lead to pain and inconvenience. We also request financial compensation for pain and suffering, mental distress, and similar damages.

Settlement negotiations can be delayed and exhausting. Some defendants refuse to admit any blame and might, in fact, blame you for the collision. We always strive to understand the accident in detail to minimize your own contribution to the wreck.
