Rear-End Collisions
It's Almost Never a Question of Fault

If you’ve been injured in a rear-end collision it can take months or even years to understand the full extent of the injuries and the impact they will have on your life. Most victims of a rear-end collision experience a stiff neck or injury and may think they are not seriously injured, however symptoms can linger or show up much later. If not properly diagnosed and treated early-on more severe or permanent damage can occur — that’s why it’s critical to seek medical help immediately.

There’s good news and bad news. When you’ve been rear-ended, there’s rarely a question of fault. In nearly every case, the following driver was driving too closely, not paying attention, or both. While they probably won’t argue about fault, the insurance companies will still be ready for a fight. They’re going to do their best to give you as little compensation as possible. It’s important to consult an experienced accident attorney before you settle with an insurance company to ensure all damages, including future medical expenses, wage loss, and pain and suffering are covered. Lance D. Youd has the experience you need to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve for your losses and suffering.

Injuries commonly cause by rear-end collisions include

  • Spinal cord & nerve damage
  • Herniated discs & vertebrae fractures
  • Head injuries & traumatic brain injuries
  • Neck and back strains & sprains

I don’t usually participate in reviews however, my experience with Mr. Youd was incentive enough to do so and I thought perhaps it might help someone who may be hesitant or intimidated to meet with an attorney. Mr. Youd’s knowledge of the law and his experience were evident right away but it was his genuine concern for my situation that put him in a category of his own. He was able to counsel me swiftly and concisely with excellent advice and tremendous foresight. Kudos and thank you!”
