Dallas Rear End Accident Attorney

Rear-end collisions are some of the most common types of crashes. They range from small taps that barely leave a scratch to major traffic events that crush vehicles and cause deaths. While rear-end collisions can happen on any road, they routinely take place on some of the most congested roads in Dallas including the Dallas North Tollway, I-30, and Central Expressway.

After a serious rear-end collision, those involved may have more to worry about than a bruised bumper. Collisions that take place at high speeds can result in fractures, brain injuries, and spinal cord/neck injuries. To prove fault and secure full compensation for your losses, you may need support from a local car accident attorney. At Fielding Law, we can help you negotiate with insurers, find high-quality medical care in the Dallas–Fort Worth area, and protect your injury rights under Texas laws.

Liability in Rear-end Collisions

The state of Texas evaluates every rear-end collision claim individually. Our state does not automatically assume that the rear driver is at fault. To prove fault, investigators must often recreate the event with help from specialists. Depending on the circumstances, the rear or front driver may face responsibility for the incident. In cases involving pile-ups, investigators will look at the role of each driver in the accident.

Injurious rear-end collisions can happen when:

  • A foremost driver stops unexpectedly in the roadway.
  • A rearmost driver fails to pay attention to the roadway and apply brakes in a reasonable manner.
  • A foremost driver pulls out in front of a vehicle without giving the vehicle enough time to slow down.
  • A rearmost driver tailgates a vehicle.
  • A foremost driver brake-checks a tailgater.
  • Vehicles in a line fail to leave enough distance between each other to avoid a chain reaction when one brakes.

All drivers are responsible for reasonable driving behaviors on the roadway. They should drive at safe speeds, leave enough space between vehicles, and give other vehicles enough time to react to their movements. When drivers fail to drive responsibly, they may face legal liability for the property damage and injuries sustained during a resulting accident.

Building a Claim for Compensation in Rear-end Collisions

Insurers often try to fight rear-end compensation claims. They may delay the claim, question your injuries, and deny valid claims to avoid paying. For injured individuals who are trying to make ends meet and receive medical treatment, this process can feel frustrating and overwhelming. Instead of hoping an insurer will treat you fairly, partner with a recognized rear-end accident attorney in Dallas who will put your best interests first.
