Rear-End Accidents in Rochester

Rochester, NY - Injuries Follow Three-Car Accident on I-390 at Lyell Ave

Although rear-end accidents are often thought of as trivial, many of them cause serious injuries to the occupants of the car that was hit from behind. These kinds of accidents usually result in serious neck and back injuries which can be crippling and negatively impact victims for the rest of their lives.

Accidents that involve three or more vehicles can also result from a single rear-end accident. These accidents are known as chain-reaction or pile-up accidents. They often take place when the second vehicle collides with the back of the first, setting off a domino effect of successive rear-end collisions.    

An experienced car accident attorney will study various defenses that might apply to your case by reviewing the facts of the crash, speaking with eyewitnesses, and skillfully and shrewdly questioning the defendant during their deposition.

If you have been injured in a rear-end accident, an experienced car accident lawyer in New York can help you get the financial compensation you are entitled to. Rear-end accidents are one of the most common kinds of car accidents throughout the state.
