When a rear-end collision occurs, fault and liability are often fairly clear-cut. In fact, Texas courts have often presumed negligence on the part of a driver who hits another vehicle from behind, although this is not always the case. Many factors can affect the outcome of a rear-end collision claim. Securing fair compensation for injuries caused in rear-end collisions can be difficult and requires the attention of an experienced personal injury lawyer.

Kent McAfee, we bring over 34 years of experience to every car accident case.

Whether you were injured at an intersection while riding a motorcycle, driving a car or walking across the street, you can rely on our law firm to maximize your chances of recovering compensation. We understand insurance company tactics, and we work hard to overcome them. Our goal is to make sure you are fully and fairly compensated for your losses.
Victims of rear-end accidents sometimes do not immediately know the full extent of their injuries. In fact, many victims assume that while they may have back pain, neck pain or a strain of some type, the pain will eventually go away. This may or may not be true in your situation, but it is always best to seek medical care immediately after your accident and then talk to a lawyer as soon as possible. If it turns out that you have severe whiplash or injuries that only reveal themselves over time, this kind of early action on your part can increase your chance of recovering compensation.
