Rear-End Collisions Attorneys in Santa Ana 

If you or a loved one has been injured in a rear-end collision, you may be able to file a claim to recover your present and future damages, including medical and occupational costs. The process can be time-consuming and confusing, and an attorney from the Law Offices of Benjamin Arsenian can help.

Common Rear-End Collision Injuries 

Some of the most common injuries that we have helped clients recover compensation to cover their extensive medical bills and lost income include: 

  • Traumatic brain injury – a traumatic brain injury or TBI can happen when your body comes to a sudden stop, or your head is jerked in one direction or another, causing your brain to impact the inside of your skull. This can lead to permanent chemical changes in your brain and long-term injury
  • Whiplash and neck injury – when your head moves suddenly backward when your vehicle is struck, it can cause whiplash which often results in neck injury. 
  • Back injury – back injury can lead to chronic pain and related management requirements 
  • Spinal cord injury – accidents that lead to partial or complete paralysis entitle injured persons to substantial compensation for the loss of earnings potential and associated changes in lifestyle. 

When you experience long-term, life-altering injuries as a result of a rear-end collision accident that was caused by another driver, you are entitled to compensation. 

Common Causes of Rear-End Collision Accidents We Help With 

To collect compensation from another party for your injury, they must be liable for the accident that caused them in a legally enforceable way. For example, when a driver has violated traffic laws, they will be liable for damages that result from accidents they cause as they were breaching the law and their duty to other drivers. 

Some of the most common causes of rear-end collisions are: 

  • Distracted driving – The CDC explains that distracted is when any 1 of the following 3 things are happening: (1) a driver’s eyes are off the road (2) a driver’s mind off their driving (3) a driver’s hands are off the wheel. Each year about 3,000 people are killed in crashes that involve distracted driving each year in the US. 
  • Drowsy or fatigued driving – when drivers are not adequately rested, they are not capable of effectively responding on the road, and if this caused them to rear-end you, they could be liable for the accident. 
  • Aggressive driving and speeding -if a driver has not left enough space between their vehicle and the vehicle in front of them to safely stop, or speeding does the same, they will be liable for damage and injuries caused if that leads them to rear-end you.
