Potential Causes of Your Rear-End Collision
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that nearly 30% of all car accidents comprise rear-end collisions. To avoid a rear-end collision, drivers must give themselves adequate stopping distance between themselves and the vehicle in front of them. Your Worthington rear-end collisions lawyer will need to determine why your accident occurred to pursue compensation for your damages.
Some reasons why another motorist may have caused your accident include:
- The driver was impaired by alcohol or drugs. When a driver does not have the normal use of their mental or physical faculties, they may cause an accident.
- The driver was distracted. Distractions such as eating, applying makeup, or using a smartphone can take one’s eyes, hands, and mind off driving. Distracted driving causes thousands of collisions each year.
- The motorist was driving aggressively. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety lists speeding, changing lanes without signaling, and other dangerous behaviors as forms of aggressive driving.
- The driver was tired. Driving while drowsy shares the same effects as drunk driving.
Regardless of whether the other driver was charged with a crime or issued a citation, you still have the right to pursue compensation for your damages. If you suffered broken bones, internal bleeding, or other injuries due to a negligent driver, a Worthington rear-end collisions lawyer can advocate for your right to fair compensation.

How Bressman Law Can Help You
To build your case, your lawyer must examine the evidence associated with your rear-end accident. The details regarding how your accident occurred, who was involved, and why your collision happened are essential to pursuing compensation.
Bressman Law can investigate your accident to identify the parties responsible for your losses. For example, another driver or a parts manufacturer (or both) may face liability for your damages.
The types of evidence that may help us build your case include:
- The official crash report
- Accident scene photographs and videos
- Statements from eyewitnesses
- Your medical records detailing the extent of your injuries
You may have some pieces of evidence already in your possession. If you do, you should consider sharing them with your legal team. If not, there is no need to worry; your legal team can get them for you. Call Bressman Law today to learn more about what evidence could support your personal injury case.

Do Not Delay Seeking Legal Representation
Hiring a lawyer as soon as possible after your accident could ultimately work to advance your legal goals. Ohio’s statute of limitations will dictate how long you have to file your personal injury lawsuit. Ohio Revised Code (ORC) §2305.10 generally allows accident claimants two years from the date of their collision to file a lawsuit.
If negotiations with the liable insurance company are unsuccessful, you may need to go to court. From there, your lawyer will handle the obligations that go into presenting your case before a judge.
The sooner you contact Bressman Law, the faster we can get started on your case.

Some Insurance Companies Are Not on Your Side
While you have the right to negotiate with the liable insurance company without a lawyer, you should know that some insurance companies are not on your side. Rather than fairly compensate injured claimants, some of these agencies employ unscrupulous tactics to deny or undervalue claimants’ damages.
Yet, when you partner with a Worthington rear-end collisions lawyer, they can:
- Draft, write, and send your demand letter
- Present the liable insurance company with the cost of your damages
- Review the involved auto insurance policies
- Protect you against any “bad faith” insurance practices
- Reference the outcomes of cases similar to yours
- Manage communications with the claims adjuster on your behalf
Following your accident, the insurance company may quickly offer you a settlement. This amount of money may not be enough to cover the cost of your medical bills and lost income. It likely will not take into account losses that you have not incurred yet.
Your lawyer can calculate the cost of your expenses so that you understand what constitutes a fair settlement offer. If we cannot reach a mutual agreement with the insurance company, again, your lawyer can file a lawsuit and represent you in court.
