Any car crash can change lives in an instant, and rear-end collisions are common and can be particularly detrimental car accidents. Rear-end collisions are those that involve one vehicle striking another from behind. If the car in which you were riding was hit from the rear, you may have vehicle repairs, medical costs, lost wages, and other related expenses as a result. Dealing with all of this while having the insurance company calling you to try to get you to settle your case may be stressful. This is why you should call an experienced South Carolina personal injury lawyer at Grimes Teich Anderson. We know the law and can help protect your rights and get you the money to which you may be entitled under the law for your injuries.
Rear-end collisions are commonly caused by distracted driving, lost traction due to poor tires or road conditions, tailgating, and panic stops, among other catalysts, and they can pose serious and unique risks to the health of all drivers and passengers. Even moderate rear-end collisions may cause whiplash, and herniation and other more severe injuries are also possible.What You Need to Know
The law is complicated and what is true in South Carolina may not be the case in North Carolina when it comes to rear-end collisions and car wrecks in general. Our North Carolina and South Carolina personal injury lawyers have years of experience standing up to insurance companies and protecting victims rights. Unfortunately, motor vehicle accident victims who to try to handle their injury cases on their own may endanger their rights and their monetary recovery. Accident victims trying to deal directly with the insurance companies of those liable for their rear-end collision, may assume insurers will settle their claim fairly and communicate with them directly. That’s not likely to happen. Their job is to protect their client, not the injured victim.
Insurance companies are companies first: their only obligation is to policyholders and stockholders. They are not morally or financially invested in protecting those who are injured in motor vehicle crashes caused by their clients. Insurance companies keep lawyers and adjustment experts on the payroll and provide them with massive amounts of resources to represent themselves and to deny your claim. The injury lawyers at Grimes Teich Anderson, on the other hand, are loyal only to the injured accident victims who hire us. Our accident lawyers have years of experience in dealing with car crash victims, and we may be able to help you.
