Rear-End Accidents in Orange County, CA

Injured in a rear-end collision? You need a fighter in your corner.

Rear-end accidents are all too common on city streets and on the many heavily traveled freeways such as the I-5, 405 or 91 freeways. In a rear end collision, the vehicle driver or passenger's head is whipped violently back and forth, which can result in neck injuries, head injuries, compression fractures or spinal cord injuries. In the most tragic cases, the driver can be pushed into oncoming or crossing traffic, leading to fatal or catastrophic injuries.

If you or a loved one is suffering from the actions of a negligent driver who rear-ended you, our Orange County car accident attorneys are prepared to evaluate your case. One of our founders, Jason D. Cohn, formerly served as a litigator defending insurance companies. While serving in this capacity, he gained real-world knowledge of exactly how insurance companies operate in minimizing the pay-out of claims, and the various strategies they could employ to reduce the value of a settlement.

If you were seriously injured in a rear-end accident, the last thing you need to worry about is being victimized by an insurance company. We do not let that happen. We are highly skilled and successful in personal injury law, and have recovered over $75 million in damages for wrongfully injured clients. Need a fighter in your corner? You have come to the right place. Our firm is ready and willing to fight for your rights, but it is up to you to take the first step.

At Cohn & Swartzon, P.C., we are a committed team of high-powered injury lawyers with an extensive record of success in cases of serious injury.

Determining Fault After a Rear-End Collision

Typically, the fault usually lies with the driver of the car that collides with the rear of the other car, though this is not always the case. Some of the most common causes of these types of accidents include distracted driving and faulty brakes. A rear-end collision can also occur when a driver swerves into another lane to avoid another vehicle. There are a number of other reasons why a driver could be at fault, and many of those reasons involve driver negligence or inattention. With the right legal counsel, you can prove that another individual's negligent actions led to your injuries, which could open the door to the payment to which you are entitled.

Seeking Maximum Compensation for Your Injuries

Many serious injuries can occur during a collision, including:

The costs involved in caring for catastrophic injuries can fall into the multi-million dollar range. These costs must be paid by the negligent driver. In cases where the insurance company fails to make a fair offer, we are very familiar with presenting cases to a jury in civil court and in seeking justice for our clients.

Recent Reviews From Previous Clients

  • They certainly took the stress away in settling my claim

    “It is a real pleasure to recommend Cohn & Swartzon! For personal, prompt and excellent service they can't be beat. They certainly took the stress away in settling my claim. I am so thankful to them.”

  • From my personal experience, I can refer Cohn & Swartzion to anybody!

    “I was involved in an auto accident earlier this year. A friend of mine referred me to attorney Saar Swartzon at Cohn & Swartzon, a Professional Law Corporation. I met with Mr. Swartzon and his senior paralegal Linda Chapman to discuss my accident. We discussed the accident, the pain I was in and how my doctor was going to submit a request for physical therapy to my insurance company, which could take up to two weeks to obtain approval I was told. I informed Mr. Swartzon that I had previously had cervical surgery in 2012 and how it took almost a month to receive approval for physical therapy from my insurance company and make my first appointment with the physical therapist they approved me for. With the pain I suffered from the whiplash caused by the accident, I could not wait that long. Mr. Swartzon referred me to a physician that he knew so I could be evaluated and obtain written approval immediately for physical therapy. Mr. Swartzon also referred me to a physical therapy location near my work, which took me in immediately. During my treatments, I did not have to worry about anything. Linda Chapman handled all of the incoming bills that I received incurred by the accident as well as all of the correspondence from the insurance companies requesting updates. Their legal assistant Renee Bushman did a great job following up on the information requested by Linda about the other party to help with my case. I was always kept informed on the status of my case and always received quick responses to my emails. Due to the outstanding work that Saar, Linda and Renee had done, my case settled quickly and I am once again pain free. Now I know why my friend referred me to Saar Swartzon at Cohn & Swartzon and I can honestly say from my personal experience that I can refer them to anybody reading my review as well as anybody I know who is involved in an auto accident.”

  • Highly Recommend

    “I cannot recommend the offices of Cohn & Swartzon highly enough. I was referred to them after being involved in an accident with an uninsured driver. I was in pain and after 6 weeks was still trying to be seen by a physical therapist. I met with Jason the first day and he couldn't have been nicer. He seemed to really care about me and my case and within 24 hours I was being seen at a great facility for physical therapy. My case was taken over by Elva who was always on top of things. She kept me in the loop and pretty much took over everything so that I didn't have to deal with it. She was able to get the highest amount possible and I walked away with more than I could have hoped for. I am so thankful for her and the entire office of Cohn & Swartzon.”

  • I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided!

    “I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided me with during my time of need. I truly did not expect my insurance to cover my legal fees, but I am sure that Attorney Cohn and Attorney Swartzon wrote a great letter to them. I hope that I don't need an attorney ever again; but if I did, I would go back to Cohn & Swartzon. And I would definitely refer my family and friends.”

  • I could not have done it alone, and I am very grateful to them.

    “I was recently hurt in a really bad car accident. I did not have health insurance but Cohn & Swartzon helped me to receive greatly needed medical care. They also helped me get a replacement car quickly so that my wife could continue to drive to work while I was at home, getting better. I could not have done it alone, and I am very grateful to them.”
