There are no “minor” accidents when you’re hurt.
Rear-end collisions are often dismissed as “minor” accidents and “fender benders.” Yet anyone injured in a rear-end car accident knows that these types of accidents are often devastating.
If you suffered critical injuries in a rear-end collision, Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C., might be able to collect compensation for your medical bills and other damages.
Things to Know About Rear-end Car Accident Insurance Claims
Dealing with the insurance company after a car accident might seem like the answer to your problems. You might think that filing an insurance claim is the easiest way to recover compensation after an accident.
Sadly, the hard truth is that the insurance company isn’t looking out for your best interests. They care about one thing: their money. When they pay out on your injury settlement, insurers lose money. That gives them an incentive to try to take advantage of you.
We Can File Your Insurance Claim
A rear-end accident attorney can file your insurance claim for you. We take care of the phone calls, the paperwork, and the stress of dealing with the insurance adjuster.
Attorneys Pursue Non-Monetary Damages
Typically, insurance companies cover financial damages such as the costs of repairing or replacing your vehicle and your medical expenses. We understand that you also suffered emotional losses.
The insurance company is under no obligation to compensate you for these damages – and they won’t. You’ll need to seek them in your civil rear-end accident claim.
We Can Also File a Lawsuit
Insurance companies are also only required to pay out up to the insured party’s policy limits. If the liable party only carried $25,000 in property damage, but your vehicle was totaled, this may not be enough to cover the value of your car. A car accident lawyer with Staver Injury Lawyers can file a lawsuit to seek additional damages.

Your attorney gathers essential evidence to support your case, including:
- Video footage
- Witness statements
