Phoenix Rear End Accident Attorney
A rear end crash collision occurs when one vehicle crashes into the rear end of another vehicle. If you were sitting in your car, perhaps at a stop light or intersection, and a car proceeds to ram into your car’s rear end and cause an motor vehicle accident, the party who crashed into your car would normally receive a traffic violation for the accident. Additionally, if you received any injuries and/or property damage as a result of the crash, you would be entitled to seek compensation with the help of a Phoenix rear end accident lawyer in a personal injury lawsuit. If the rate of speed was significant, resulting in death to the driver in the car that was rear-ended, the survivors may seek compensation in a wrongful death claim. The Phoenix Law Firm of Curiel and Runion offers a free consultation to review your case – with no obligations whatsoever.
