Daytona Beach Rear End Car Accident Lawyer

Rear End Car Accident Lawyers in Daytona Beach

A rear end car accident occurs when someone drives their car into the back of the car in front of them. They often occur because the second driver was driving too close, driving too fast to stop in time, chose not to slow down after the driver in front of them slows down, or was so distracted that they don’t even notice that the car in front of them was slowing down.

Common injuries caused by rear end car accidents

Rear end car accidents can cause serious injury, and even death. The most common types of rear end car accident injuries include:

  • Burns
  • Chronic pain
  • Head injuries
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI))
  • Whiplash

With the exception of burns, many of these injuries may not appear immediately after an accident has taken place, which is why it’s always best to speak with a Daytona Beach rear end car accident lawyer as quickly as possible. Rear end car accident lawyers evaluate each case with an eye towards the potential need for long-term, ongoing care.

Compensation for rear end car accidents in Florida

When someone is involved in a rear end car accident, they are entitled to compensation for their injuries, as well as other damages. These include:

  • The repair or replacement of the car
  • Past medical bills
  • Future medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Home health care, if required
  • Employment retraining, if necessary
  • Pain and suffering

These expenses are paid by the other driver’s insurance company, assuming that person has car insurance. Unfortunately, not all Florida drivers carry car insurance to protect those they injure, and many others don’t carry enough insurance to cover all the injuries they cause. Thankfully, when someone is involved in a rear end car accident and the other driver doesn’t have car insurance, or doesn’t have enough insurance, all is not lost.

A rear end car accident lawyer knows the in’s and out’s of Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage, as well as Bad Faith and Extra–Contractual Liability. Both are sources of additional money that’ll help to cover the costs of any injuries that were sustained.

How Zimmet & Zimmet rear end car accident lawyers can help you

Many people wonder if they even need a car accident lawyer, especially since many times, the insurance company for the other driver will immediately offer to pay for the replacement of the damaged vehicle. While this may sound great in theory, if you don’t have legal representation, you may not receive all the compensation you are entitled to. All too often, the insurance company for the other party seeks to resolve the matter without any attorneys getting involved. After all, the insurance company for the other driver does not owe you, the injured party, anything. They are not required to consider or protect your best interests, which is why having your own car accident lawyer is so important.
