West Palm Beach Rear-End Car Accidents Attorney
Rear-end accidents are the most common type of car accident in the State of Florida. This West Palm Beach rear-end car accident attorney provides aid to clients injured in car accidents. A rear-end car collision happens when one vehicle strikes the other vehicle directly from behind. This usually happens when one driver is following too closely to the other car. These accidents can be dangerous because they can result in injuries to the driver and passengers in the front car such as whiplash and other head/neck/spinal injuries.
A rear-end crash happens when one car collides into the back of another car. This frequently happens when one car is stopped at an intersection and the other car approaches too fast. It can also take place when both cars are moving and the front car stops abruptly.
If you are the victim of a rear-end car accident, it will be presumed that the driver that hit you was responsible. In fact, there is a Florida State Statute that offers this presumption. Mr. Quackenbush can use this presumption in court to argue that the Jury must presume that, absent evidence to the contrary, the driver that hit you was negligent.
If certain things are proven, then this presumption can be overcome. For instance, the other driver might argue that you stopped your vehicle suddenly and that this is why you were rear-ended. If this can be proven, then the other driver might be able to overcome the presumption and prove that you were responsible for the accident. This is why it's vital to call Mr. Quackenbush. He can overcome this argument and maintain your case strong, and he has done this in many rear-end accident cases.

A multiple-car pileup accident is one specific type of rear-end car accident. In a multi-car pileup accident, one vehicle rear ends another, which rear ends a third, and so on and so forth. Bad multiple-car pileup crashes can involve several vehicles and can have overwhelming consequences as well as catastrophic injuries.
It is very important to find out who caused the accident in a multi-car pileup collision. In the majority of multiple-car pileup accidents, the vehicle in the far back caused the accident. The vehicle in the rear normally negligently rear-end the vehicle in front of it and caused a "domino effect" of vehicles rear-ending each-other.
Yet, in a multi-car accident, one thing that will be significant is the number of impacts that you felt. For instance, if you felt two impacts, then it could be that one vehicle (e.g., "Vehicle A") rear-ended you, and then was rear-ended by the vehicle in back of it ("Vehicle B") which pushed Vehicle A back into you. In that situation, you would feel two impacts from Vehicle A - even though the second impact was actually caused by Vehicle B. Both vehicles can be legally responsible for rear-ending you in that situation. If that is the situation in your case, this West Palm Beach rear-end car accident lawyer will try to gain compensation for you from both liable drivers.Client Compensation Pursued by this Palm Beach County Rear-End Car Crash/Wreck Law Firm
One of the leading causes of rear-end accidents is drunk driving. A person who drives after consuming alcohol or any other drug is more likely to cause an accident than the sober driver. Drunk drivers willfully and unnecessarily endanger the lives of other people who are on the road. If you are injured by a drunk driver, you may be entitled to punitive damages. Punitive damages are intended to serve as a deterrent when the defendant’s misconduct was sufficiently offensive. These damages are meant to punish the drunk driver and deter the driver and others from similar conduct in the future.
Distracted driving, cell phone use, or texting and driving can also lead to rear-end vehicle accidents. In the State of Florida and around the World these days, distracted driving has been proven to be one of the primary causes of accidents. Victims of distracted driving accidents are possibly able to seek punitive damages from the distractetd drivers as well as compensation for lost wages, medical bills, and suffering. In order to be awarded punitive damages, you will need to show that the driver acted with a conscious disregard for the safety of others. You should hire this West Palm Beach rear-end accident lawyer who can help you to do this.
You might sustain all types of injuries if you are the victim of a rear-end vehicle accident. These injuries might include catastrophic injuries, amongst them brain injuries. You might suffer neck and back injuries. All types of orthopedic injuries can result from rear-end accidents too.
In some cases, death can also result from a rear-end accident. In those circumstances, a personal representative of the deceased person's estate will be chosen to represent the family/loved ones of the decedent in the court case. When the case is settled or a judgment is obtained after trial, the proceeds will go to the beneficiaries or survivors of the deceased person.Call 954-448-7288 to Speak to this South Florida Rear-End Car Collision Attorney Today
