Have You Or A Loved One Been Rear-End Collision in Chandler Arizona
A rear-end collision occurs when an oncoming vehicle rams into the back of your car. In Chandler Arizona, the car that just rear-ended you is more than likely the at-fault driver. So, if you were at a stop sign and got rear-ended that driver more than likely will be the at-fault driver, as per Arizona law. Another scenario might be that you as a driver slam the brakes on and successfully stop your car from rear-ending the car in front of you, but then, despite all of your efforts to stop or prevent a car accident, you get rear-ended while driving in Chandler Az.
Can You Sue For A Rear-End Collision?
Many insurance companies want you to think rear-end accidents have a propensity to be less serious than other types of car accidents, but that doesn’t make them any less irritating. But more importantly,
THE AMOUNT OF DAMAGE TO YOUR VEHICLE HAS BEEN SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN NOT TO HAVE ANY RELATIONSHIP TO YOUR BODILY INJURIES.
Plus, some rear-end collisions can be incredibly serious and leave you with thousands of dollars in medical bills, lost wages, vehicle damage, and more. If you aren’t able to recover your damages through an insurance claim, you may need to sue the other driver for the rear-end collision.

Following all types of auto accidents, the legal procedure operates the same way. In the days after the accident, the at-fault driver’s insurance company will likely reach out to you. They will typically offer you a financial settlement that may seem attractive—but don’t let it dupe you.
The initial settlement offer is always substantially below what will actually cover your damages (meaning the losses from your accident). The insurance company is betting you are unaware of this and that you accept the lowball proposal. If you accept, you will have signed away your legal rights and completely lost any chance of being awarded a fair and equitable settlement for your damages.
It is important to be aware that insurance companies have even been known may use additional ways to use information against you. You always 100% of the time want to make sure your rights are as protected as possible—and the best way to do that is by contacting an experienced rear-end collision accident lawyer. A lawyer can research your case and let you know what an actually fair settlement offer will look like.
