Rear-End Accident Lawyers Serving Toronto
Our “no win, no fee” promise – you pay nothing unless we recover compensation
Rear-end car accidents are very common in Toronto and throughout the GTA. They can cause serious injuries, and if you’ve been injured in a rear-end accident caused by a negligent driver, you deserve financial compensation. Recovering compensation can be a complicated process. The experienced car accident attorneys at Smitiuch Injury Law can help.
In a typical rear-end crash, the front of one car crashes into the back of another. The driver of the car in back is expected to maintain a reasonable distance from the car in front, travel at a reasonably relative speed, and maintain control at all times. In general, the driver of the car in back is considered to be at fault in a rear-end crash, but it isn’t always that simple.
A driver may argue that you suddenly stopped for no apparent reason, or that you were driving recklessly. The driver may claim there was a defect in the braking system that prevented the car from stopping in time. This can make it more difficult to recover financial compensation.
Toronto car accident lawyers who know how to get results
Insurance companies are supposed to help when you’ve been hurt in a crash, but they are mainly concerned about making money. To keep their profits as high as possible, they will try to keep payments as low as possible. There are many different tactics they use to try to limit your compensation – for example, by questioning the seriousness of your injuries.
Meanwhile, you are trying to heal from your injuries. Injuries seen in rear-end accidents include whiplash, broken bones and injuries to the head, neck and back. You need medical treatment and the expenses are adding up quickly. If you have to miss time from work because of your injuries, there is less income coming in.
Our car accident lawyers understand the impact a rear-end accident can have on your life. We know the challenges and obstacles that can come up when you are trying to recover compensation. We know how to fight back against insurance company tactics to help you recover the compensation you deserve.
The driver in back is usually considered at fault, but we take nothing for granted. Our legal team investigates to gather evidence that proves your accident was caused by the other driver’s negligence. We carefully review police reports and medical records. We identify and interview witnesses. If needed, we consult accident reconstruction experts.
