Rear-end car accidents are the one of the most common type of collisions occurring in the Orlando area. During a rear-end collision, the front end of one vehicle hits the rear end of the vehicle traveling in front of it. These car accidents can result in severe injuries, even when the vehicles are traveling at slow speeds.

In most cases, rear-end car accidents are caused by distracted driving. Talking or texting on cell phones, programming a navigation system, and eating are all actions that may cause a driver to take his eyes off the road for a few seconds. These brief moments of inattention can make it difficult to react in time if the driver in front of him stops unexpectedly.

If you have been injured in a rear-end car accident caused by the negligence of another driver, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your damages. Michael Barszcz has more than 24 years of experience handling these cases, and he will fight aggressively to ensure your rights are protected.

Proving Fault in a Rear-End Car Accident

In most instances, the driver who does the rear-ending is found to be at fault for the car accident. The laws in Florida state that all drivers are required to maintain a safe following distance to avoid hitting the vehicle in front of them in the event that they must stop. Therefore, it is generally presumed that the rear-ending driver did not fulfill this responsibility.

However, as with all types of car accidents, exceptions to this rule may apply, and your car accident lawyer must be able to prove conclusively that the other driver was at fault in order for you to receive compensation. If necessary, Mr. Barszcz retains accident reconstruction experts to accomplish this goal.

In some cases, there may be more than one party at fault for your injuries. If a defective vehicle causes an important safety mechanism such as a seat belt, air bags, brakes, or bumpers to malfunction and this contributes to the severity of your injuries, the vehicle manufacturer may be held accountable for your damages as well.
