Rear-End Collision Injury Lawyer
Rear-end collisions are a common type of vehicle accident on Florida highways and are often the cause of injuries. Generally speaking, the person who strikes your vehicle from the rear is at fault because drivers should not be following other vehicles so closely that they are unable to stop suddenly. However, Florida is a comparative negligence state where fault is assigned to everyone responsible for an accident, regardless of the degree.
For example, if you are a victim of a rear-end collision, but your brake lights were inoperative so the other driver had no warning that you were stopping, you could be assigned partial responsibility for the accident. Any damages assessed to the offending driver would be reduced by the percentage deemed to be your fault. A rear-end collision injury lawyer from Ligori & Ligori can explain more during a consultation.
Florida is also a no-fault state where each driver involved in an accident is responsible for their own injuries, usually through their car insurance policy. However, insurance companies are more concerned with limiting loss than paying for your injuries and other losses. If you have been involved in a rear-end collision accident and suffered injuries, call Ligori & Ligori, Attorneys at Law.

Rear-end collision accidents often cause injuries, but some of them are not readily noticeable. Whiplash is a type of injury that can have immediate symptoms, or they may not become evident until several days after the accident. You should always contact a rear-end collision injury lawyer if you have been involved in this type of accident. We can help you negotiate with the insurance company, plus a personal injury lawsuit can help cover extensive medical treatment costs and other losses you may incur.
If an insurance company proposes a settlement amount, it usually does not take into consideration the full extent of your injuries or the costs of long-term treatments or therapies. Nor will it likely cover lost wages for the time you must be out of work for your recovery. Ligori & Ligori rear-end collision injury lawyers can file a personal injury lawsuit to help you fight for adequate compensation for all your losses.
