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.

From Previous Clients

  • I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of honest, knowledgeable, and hard fighting attorneys.

    “It was such a pleasure to be represented by Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. recently. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of honest, knowledgeable, and hard fighting attorneys. After a car accident which involved numerous injuries, I couldn't handle the stress of dealing with the insurance companies. They completely took over for me. They negotiated with the insurance companies and as a result of their determination, I received a very fast and fair settlement. All during this process, they kept me updated on all the proceedings, always returned my phone calls promptly and answered any questions I had the entire staff at Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. were always courteous and helpful. Thank you ever so much!”

  • 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.”

  • They stayed true to their word

    “Let me begin by saying that I would recommend Cohn & Swartzon to anyone in need of legal advice. Both Jason and Saar are very personable and they provided a high level of service to me as their client. In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service. One of the things that I liked was the fact that they stayed true to their word. They told me that they personally would take calls, if necessary. It was not very often that I needed to speak directly to them; but when I did, they were accessible. I appreciate the great lengths that they went to in working with an uncooperative doctor, who took a very long time getting a key report to them. They worked with the insurance companies and the adjusters, which took all of the unnecessary stress off of me. The Firm went to bat for me and we were successful in settling my personal injury case without going to trial. Saar was able to negotiate and reduce my medical bills, thus putting more cash into my hands. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome, and the timing of the settlement couldn't have come at a better time.”

  • 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.”
