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

  • Thank you again for all your help and dedication

    “Saar, I wanted to say thank you again for all your help and dedication. The settlement was a bonus. My main concern was my well-being. And I'm glad to say I am well. I do not have any back pain and I can enjoy watching and interacting with my daughter. One more time and on behalf of my family, thanks.”

  • 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 was very pleased with the firm's persistence

    “I highly recommend Cohn & Swartzon. When I decided to retain the Firm, I initially spoke with Attorney Jason D. Cohn. He was very knowledgeable and helpful in explaining what sort of personal injury case to expect. With the assistance of Attorney Saar Swartzon, Cohn & Swartzon were able to get me a $28,000 settlement. I was very pleased with the firm's persistence and hard work. The attorneys always kept me informed about how my case was going, they were completely honest, and offered great advice. They listened to my concerns and needs, and always made me feel like I was a high priority client. Everyone at the Firm is very friendly and caring, both as one's legal representation, and simply as individuals. Thanks again!”

  • 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 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.”
