Rear-End Accidents

Hurt in Mobile, AL crash? Our attorneys can help

Rear-end collisions are common car wrecks throughout Alabama. That’s why some people don’t take them seriously. But even such straightforward crashes can cause serious injuries that require medical treatment and could result in you missing work.

We get it at Dean Waite & Associates, LLC in Mobile, Alabama. That’s because our car accident lawyers have been fighting to help injury victims recover the financial compensation they deserve for years.

Common causes of rear-end accidents

Why do rear-end car accidents happen? In general, either because the driver behind you was not paying attention or was unable to come to a complete stop. This may have been because the driver was:

  • Texting
  • Distracted (by a GPS device, radio controls or eating)
  • Speeding
  • Drunk (or had used drugs)
  • Fatigued

People can suffer a wide range of injuries in rear-end accidents. These include whiplash and other neck injuries, back injuries, head injuries and broken bones. These injuries may require surgery, hospitalization and other medical treatment. Medical expenses can add up fast. So can other bills. While you’re recovering, you may not be able to work. And without financial compensation, your financial future could be in jeopardy.

The driver in the rear vehicle is almost always at fault in a rear-end accident. But just because you know the other driver caused your crash doesn’t mean your case will be simple. The driver could deny any responsibility. He or she may even suggest that you were somehow to blame. And then there’s the insurance companies. They’re often looking for ways to pay as little as possible. That’s why they’ll likely make you a low-ball settlement offer that doesn’t cover all of the damages you’ve suffered.

That is not acceptable. We can investigate your accident ourselves. Our legal team knows where to look for evidence that the driver who hit you was negligent. We regularly review all documentation related to your wreck, including police reports and medical records. We search for witnesses and talk to them. If needed, we’ll even bring in experts to help us prove your case.

You have rights. We can fight for them.

We build a strong case that the insurance company has to take seriously. Many times, we are then able to sit down with the insurance company and negotiate a settlement that meets your needs. And if they won’t negotiate, they can expect a fight. We prepare every case as if we are going to trial, where we have won many significant awards for clients.

Our firm has the experience and the resources needed to build successful cases that get results. That’s why so many people throughout Alabama turn to Dean Waite when they’ve been in a car accident. No matter the injuries you’ve suffered or the complexity of your case, we can help.
