The weeks and months following a rear-end collision are often confusing and traumatic for victims and their families. This is especially true when the person who caused the accident was negligent. One way to hold the at-fault party accountable for your losses is by filing a car accident claim. Before you file a claim, you likely want to hire an attorney to walk you through the process and inform you of your rights. Then, your car accident attorney will build a case that demonstrates the opposing party’s fault and the full extent of your losses. 

You know that you need a rear-end accident lawyer, but how do you find one? Check out our guide below so you know what to look for in a car accident lawyer.

Our team at Armstrong Lee & Baker, LLP,  is full of experienced personal injury attorneys who know what it takes to obtain favorable results for our clients. Contact our office to schedule an appointment.

What Is a Rear-End Accident?

A rear-end car accident occurs when a car collides with the vehicle in front of it. The United States records about eight million car accidents each year, the majority of which involve two vehicles. Rear-end collisions account for about 41.6% of two-vehicle car accidents. Many rear-end accidents happen when the driver of one vehicle is not paying attention to the road, driving too fast, or following too closely. 

Our team knows what it takes to secure favorable results for our clients who suffer injuries in rear-end accidents. Contact us today to discuss your case with an experienced car accident lawyer.

What Kind of Lawyers Handle Rear-End Accidents?

Car accidents, including rear-end accidents, typically fall into the category of personal injury claims. A personal injury claim arises when one party’s negligence or wrongful conduct results in another person’s injuries, costing them damages. To recover compensation, you must prove the opposing party’s conduct directly resulted in your injuries. 

Our team has more than a decade of experience representing clients in personal injury cases. We are confident in our ability to demonstrate the opposing party’s responsibility for the rear-end accident. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment with a member of our team.

How Do I Find a Rear-End Accident Lawyer?

People often search for the best rear-end accident lawyer online but hesitate when they see the overwhelming number of results. Unfortunately, many of the top results will not take you to an attorney’s website. Instead, many will offer a list of random attorneys from all over the country who pay for their results to show up first.

What Makes a Houston Rear-End Collision Lawyer Qualified?

Many attorneys advertise their services, but what makes an attorney competent to handle a rear-end accident?

You can look for several different factors to indicate whether a lawyer is fit to handle your case, including:

  • What kind of cases do they usually handle,
  • Experiences of previous clients, and
  • Your impression of the attorney when you meet them face to face.

People without legal experience often lack a thorough understanding of what kind of attorney can meet their needs. Our team compiled some ways to evaluate your potential selection.

Experience

The first thing to look for in your personal injury attorney is experience handling car accident cases, specifically rear-end accidents. You would not hire a dentist to look at a sore foot. Similarly, you should not hire a criminal defense attorney to represent your interests in a personal injury lawsuit. The criminal and civil systems use different rules and operate in different ways. Hiring a lawyer who regularly represents victims injured by another person’s negligence is vital to your claim. 

Client Reviews

Before you hire a rear-end accident attorney, you want to know what their former clients thought of their services. If there are multiple reviews indicating an attorney does not keep clients updated about developments in their case or gives inaccurate information, you can strike them from your list of potential attorneys. You can see reviews from our former clients on our testimonials page.

Case Results

As stated earlier, hiring a lawyer with experience handling rear-end accident cases is crucial to your case. 

Our team secured a $4 million settlement for a mother and daughter rear-ended by an unlicensed employee of a plumbing company.

Additionally, we obtained a $250,000 settlement for a woman rear-ended on the 610 Loop in Houston. We obtained a $240,000 settlement and a $150,000 settlement on behalf of clients who were rear-ended by a speeding driver.

As you can see, we fight aggressively to ensure our clients receive a settlement that helps them get back on their feet. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment with a member of our team. We look forward to hearing from you.
