They would have been focusing on what is ahead of them when they are suddenly jolted forward. Such accidents can result in serious injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured in such an accident then it is crucial that you contact an attorney. The personal injury lawyers at Noteboom – The Law Firm represent those in Hurst as well as other areas of Texas. Contact us today.
Rear-end accidents happen in a number of ways. These can include one driver tailgating another. A driver may not be paying attention to what is in front of them and, as a result, they slam into a stopped vehicle. Whatever the cause, such accidents can result in a serious injury. Victims of such accidents may suffer a spinal injury, head trauma, or may even become paralyzed. Such matters are not “just a car wreck” as a victim’s life can be substantially altered forever. If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury, in a rear-end collision, then it is crucial that you contact an attorney immediately.
Texas law protects those who have been injured by the negligence of another driver. Our state recognizes the idea of comparative negligence and has what is known as a “fifty-one percent bar.” This means that even if you were partially at fault for the accident, then you can recover for your injuries as long as you were less than fifty-one percent at fault for the incident. If a settlement cannot be reached then the case will proceed to trial and the jurors will decide the extent to which each party was at fault and the number of damages that a victim should be paid.
