When You're Rear Ended in a Car Accident and Hurt, Hire a Lawyer

Rear-Ended Car Accidents in Wisconsin

Especially in areas of heavy traffic, rear-ended collisions are one of the most common types of car accidents. Depending on speed, being rear-ended can do significant damage to your vehicle and injury to passengers, including neck pain and back painwhiplash and broken bones. If you were rear-ended in a car accident and received injuries, you may be able to claim compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Vehicle damage
  • Loss of wages
  • Pain and suffering

While determining fault for a rear-ended accident may seem simple—after all, it is clear that one car hit another from behind-- Wisconsin comparative fault law can make liability a little more complicated to prove on your own.

Don’t Get Rear-Ended by Comparative Fault Law

Comparative fault law means each of the drivers involved in a rear-ended car accident in Wisconsin can be found partially or entirely at fault. If you are found to be at fault, it will impact the amount of compensation you receive. Your settlement will be decreased by the percentage of fault you are assigned. If you are found to be more than 50% at fault, even if the other car rear-ended you, you will not receive any compensation.

This is where you’ll want an experienced car accident lawyer on your side.

In order to receive compensation for your injuries and damages, you must first prove the driver who rear-ended you is at fault for the accident and caused your injuries by failing to maintain a safe distance from your vehicle. You must also prove that you are not at fault for the accident and that a reasonable driver could have avoided rear-ending you.

Talking with witnesses immediately after the accident can provide helpful objective information about how the accident occurred, as well as information on potential causes like distracted driving. In the event of no witnesses, personal injury lawyer Steve Caya works closely with experts able to reconstruct your car accident to help prove the other driver was at fault and increase your compensation.
