A Rear-End Accident Attorney Knows How to Maximize Claims
In Oregon, Washington, throughout the Pacific Northwest and across the country, rear-end accidents are among the most common types of car accidents. A rear-end crash may be caused by a driver's distraction, especially as more people are using cell phones and other tech devices behind the wheel.
In a rear-end accident, the driver behind is usually the responsible party, although each accident is unique. There may even be an instance in which the driver in the back is not responsible for the accident. At Zbinden & Curtis, we put our energy into investigating each crash to ensure the responsible party or parties are held accountable. Our goal is to make sure our clients get the compensation they rightfully deserve.
How Rear End Collisions May Happen
A rear-end collision does not have to occur at high speed to lead to serious injuries. A slow-speed rear-end accident may result in whiplash or head and injury, since even a relatively minor force of impact may cause the driver or passenger to rapidly pitch forward.
Studies have found that more and more distracted drivers are on the roads than ever. Cell phone use, or texting while driving, is one of the causes of rear end crashes. The laws regarding cell phone use vary from state to state. Oregon and Washington prohibit drivers from using handheld cell phones. Despite prohibitions, some drivers act negligently and use handheld cell phones behind the wheel.
We also know that sleepy drivers cause rear-end collisions, as well as drunk drivers who fail to slow down or stop in time for a car ahead of them. If you or a loved one has been injured, rely on an experienced attorney at Zbinden & Curtis. Call (503) 287-5000.
