In the eyes of the law, a motorist who strikes another car from behind is generally considered to be at fault. Even if the car in front stopped suddenly, the presumption is that the car behind should have been keeping enough of a distance to also be able to stop.
Were you injured when another car struck you from behind — or when you ran into a car that stopped in front of you? You may have suffered head injuries, broken bones, neck injuries and/or injuries to internal organs. You may be entitled to compensation to cover the following:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Therapy and rehabilitation
- Pain and suffering
