Dallas Rear-End Accident Lawyer

Who is at fault for your rear-end collision?

Rear-end accidents are the most common type of car accidents to occur on Dallas roadways. They can happen when a driver is tailgating, driving while distracted, driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol or speeding. And whether the collision occurs at a high or low speed, crash victims can be severely injured in a rear-end accident.

During Dallas’s busiest rush hour, traffic may be backed up on I-30, and you could be rear-ended by a speeding motorist. You could be stopped at a traffic light on Commerce Street and be rear-ended by a distracted driver, resulting in whiplash or another serious injury. That’s why you need an experienced Dallas car accident attorney from Tracey Fox & Walters on your side.

Many people aren’t sure what to do next after a car crash. There’s a lot going on and things can get confusing. Our lawyers are ready to fight for you. We can help you navigate the legal process every step of the way.

Take your claim seriously from the start

Rear-end accidents often leave Dallas drivers with whiplash or spinal injuries. When whiplash occurs, the accident victim’s head jerks forward and backward in a rapid motion, causing damage to the neck and spine. Symptoms of whiplash may not be immediately present, but if left untreated, the damage can be permanent. Due to the low-impact nature of many rear-end accidents, insurance companies may be reluctant to pay for your medical expenses. They may even offer a small settlement in hopes your claim will go away. But such a settlement will only cover a small portion of your losses.

You should take your claim seriously from the start. If you have been rear-ended by another vehicle, you should never wait to seek medical attention. Doing so can hurt your chances of receiving full compensation. Any information you disclose to your or the other driver’s insurance company should be kept to a minimum. What you say could be used to downplay or deny your claim. But you can trust Tracey Fox & Walters to handle your case. Contact us today.
