Knoxville Injury Attorney for Rear-End Car Accidents

Campbell County Attorneys for Rear-End Car Accidents

Lawyer for Victims of Rear Impact Crashes in Knox County and Anderson County

When you are involved in a rear-end collision, the effects on your life can be significant. You could be facing months of intense medical care, years of physical therapy, and piles of bills you cannot pay. At The Law Office of William F. Evans, we understand the challenges that are involved in recovering from any type of motor vehicle accident, including a rear-end collision. We are equipped to help you recover the compensation you need to start putting your life back together.

Determining Liability for a Rear-End Collision

Under Tennessee law, liability for a car accident falls on the party whose actions or negligence caused the crash. In a rear-end collision, such responsibility is usually assigned to the driver of the rear vehicle. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), driver inattention is the leading cause of rear-end collision accidents, but there are many other ways that a driver could cause such a crash, including:

It is possible, however, for the driver of the front vehicle to share responsibility for a rear-end collision. For example, if the brake lights on the front vehicle were not working, or the driver was recklessly weaving in and out of traffic, he or she may be partially or fully at fault for the crash.

Putting the Pieces Together

When you contact our firm, you become part of our team, and we will go right to work on your behalf. We will conduct a full investigation of your accident to determine what happened and which party or parties could be held liable. Our firm will also take the time to listen to you so that we can fully understand how your injuries have affected your life. Doing so allows us to build a case designed to maximize your compensation while minimizing delays and complications.

Rear-end collisions often cause injuries that may not be immediately evident, such as whiplash, brain injuries, and soft tissue damage. As a result, an insurance company may offer a quick settlement before you even know the full extent of your injuries. It is important for you not to accept a settlement, sign anything, or even give a statement to the insurance company before you speak with an experienced member of the team at The Law Office of William F. Evans. Attorney William Evans will negotiate on your behalf to ensure that your rights are fully protected. If necessary, we are also prepared to take your matter to trial. Our approach has helped us secure favorable outcomes for many clients throughout East Tennessee, including victims of rear-end collisions, and we are ready to put our knowledge and skill to work for you.
