Albany And Saratoga Springs Rear-End Accident Lawyers Who Have Your Back After An Accident

It is often impossible to avoid a rear-end accident. If the following driver does not maintain a safe following distance, they can cause an accident in slow traffic, in a construction zone, at a stop sign or at a red light. In fact, roughly 50% of injury accidents happen at intersections, and rear-end crashes are a major reason why.

Here at Anderson, Moschetti & Taffany, PLLC, we have your back if you are looking for a rear-end accident lawyer. We have been serving Albany and Saratoga Springs, New York, for decades, and we bring that high level of experience to every case. We’re dedicated to working hard to maximize compensation for all of our car accident injury clients.

Common Causes Of Rear-End Crashes

Tailgating and inadequate following distances often lead to rear-end collisions. Driver distraction also plays a role, as a driver who is looking at a cell phone may not see traffic slow ahead of them. Additionally, these crashes happen because of intoxication, driver impairment and excessive speeding or risky driving habits, such as street racing.

Injuries Sustained In Rear-End Collisions

Injuries can vary depending on the severity of the accident, but whiplash is common as the head moves forward and backward violently and without warning. Rear-end crashes can also lead to fractures, lacerations, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), spinal cord injuries (SCIs), burn injuries and much more. Often, victims have multiple related injuries and high medical bills.

What To Do If You’re Rear-Ended In New York

If you do get rear-ended, medical care must come first. Contact the authorities, take pictures of the crash scene, get a copy of the police report and save all of your medical bills and documentation. Then find an experienced attorney who can fight for your rights to compensation.
