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.
