Damages in Rear-End Collisions
Rear-end collisions are common on Texas roadways. High traffic volumes combined with driver errors can cause collisions and injuries. Sometimes, the issue is speed or a poorly maintained vehicle. Other times it is due to driver fatigue or some distraction inside the vehicle’s cabin.
Whatever the cause, rear-end collisions are preventable and happen due to negligence.

San Antonio Rear-End Collision Attorney
Rear-end collisions can happen in both rural and urban areas but are most frequent where there is heavy traffic congestion. Interstates I-35W, I-820 and I-20 near Dallas-Fort Worth and the I-10, I-410 and I-37 in San Antonio are home to hundreds of rear-end collisions each year.
If you or someone you love was injured in a rear-end accident, I can assist you in recovering damages for your medical bills, lost wages, disability and other losses related to a:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Head or neck injury
- Back injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Burn or scar
- Radiating pain due to whiplash
- Bone fracture
- Muscle, ligament and tendon injury
I have experience in getting damages from both underinsured and uninsured motorists. If a loved one died as a result of a rear-end collision injury, I can seek survivor’s damages through a wrongful death lawsuit.
Who Is at Fault? It Depends on Circumstances
When vehicles collide in a rear-end accident, the motorist who struck from behind is often automatically assumed to be at fault. This can be especially true in situations in which a driver was following too closely.
Aggressive drivers can be held accountable when they cause rear-end accidents by swerving in front of other motorists at an unsafe distance or by intentionally causing a collision by braking in front of an approaching vehicle.
Every collision is different. Hire me, and I will take the time investigate the evidence behind your claims, meet with witnesses and collect accident reports and medical reports. I will work with accident reconstruction experts to prove your claims and secure a recovery for you.
Commercial Vehicles, Multiple Collisions
In cases of injury by a commercial vehicle such as a semi-truck or delivery truck, I can pursue claims against the driver, as well as his/her employer or the owner of the vehicle, as is applicable. When multiple motorists are involved in a multi-vehicle collision, I can help sort out fact from fiction to make sure you neither pay too much nor receive too little as a result.
