Common Causes of Rear-End Collisions
Rear-end collisions occur when one driver fails to stop and hits another vehicle from behind. These types of accidents can happen for a wide range of reasons, including:
- Driving while impaired
- Faulty brakes
- Slippery road conditions
- Failure to maintain a safe distance
- Texting while driving
- Distracted driving
- Damaged or burnt out brake lights
Liability for your accident depends on the cause. For example, if another driver was following too close to your car in traffic, he may be liable for hitting your vehicle. Or, if a brake pad manufacturer knew about issues with their product but failed to recall it, they may be liable.
A rear-end collision accident lawyer in Florida can help determine the cause and establish fault for your rear-end accident. Contact the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine at 1-800-747-3733 for a free evaluation of your accident case.
Damages You Can Recover in a Rear-End Collision Injury Claim
Rear-end collisions can cause a wide range of damages. The amount of damages you may be eligible to recover depends on several factors, including how severely you or your loved one were injured.
Damages you may be eligible to recover include:
Emergency, Surgical, or Ongoing Care Costs
You could be eligible to recover most medical costs related to your accident. These might include:
- Emergency room bills
- Ambulance transportation costs
- Testing, such as X-rays or MRIs
- Laboratory costs
- Surgery costs
- Prescription drug costs
- Rehabilitative care (e.g., physical therapy or chiropractic care)
- Ongoing care, such as nursing home care for severe injuries
Current and Future Lost Wages
If you are unable to work for a period of time or are unable to work at the same capacity following your accident, you may be eligible to recover current or future lost wages.
Pain and Suffering
You may also be entitled to pain and suffering and other noneconomic damages such as mental anguish and lost enjoyment of life. While these losses are not as straightforward to calculate as medical bills and lost wages, our team can discuss your case with experts as well as your family and friends to determine how your injuries have affected you.

Act Quickly or Risk Recovering Nothing
State law restricts the amount of time you have to file a personal injury lawsuit. In Florida, you have four years from the date of your rear-end collision to file a lawsuit.
Four years may sound like a long time; however, it is critical to start building your accident case as soon as possible before vital evidence is gone. For example, eyewitnesses may move or forget what happened over time. Roads or traffic patterns may change, or physical evidence could be misplaced.
In order to protect your right to recover compensation, contact a rear-end accident attorney as soon as possible following your accident: 1-800-747-3733.
