Do I really need a lawyer for a Cherry Hill rear-end accident?

If you were injured in a rear-end accident in or near Cherry Hill, then yes – you want a lawyer. In 2021, rear-end accidents accounted for just under 40% of total injury crashes, according to the National Safety Council. Just because something is common doesn’t mean it’s not dangerous.

You also want an attorney because rear-end accidents aren’t always cut and dry. Just because you were the one who was hit does not automatically guarantee that you will receive a fair offer for a settlement. Our attorneys can help protect you.

Who is liable for a rear-end accident in Cherry Hill?

At Ferrara & Gable, our car accident lawyers file claims against all responsible parties when a rear-end crash occurs. The defendants may include:

  • The rear-end driver
  • The owner of the vehicle if not the same as the driver
  • An employer of the driver.
  • A manufacturer of defective brakes or other defective car parts – including defective airbags and seatbelts
  • A construction company that failed to warn drivers of construction work, lane changes, and the need to slow down.

Why do rear-end accidents happen in South Jersey?

At Ferrara & Gable, our Cherry Hill rear-end accident lawyers are skilled at showing how rear-end accidents happen and why they are avoidable. Some of the common reasons a rear-end crash occurs on Route 38 or Route 72 (or any local road) include:

  • Driving while distracted – including texting while driving, using a smartphone, eating, drinking, looking at a GPS, attending to a child or pet, or any activity that takes a driver’s eyes off the road and mind off possible emergencies.
  • Tailgating
  • Speeding or driving too fast for traffic or weather conditions
  • Driving while tired
  • Drunk driving or driving while impaired by drugs
  • Defective brakes/ brake lights
  • Reckless driving

Ferrara & Gable also handles the following types of rear-end accidents:

  • Multi-vehicle chain reaction. Most rear-end collisions involve just a stopped car and the car that slams into the stopped car. Some rear-end collisions cause chain reactions where the distracted or speeding driver strikes the last car in line. The last car then is pushed into the car in front. The sequence of collisions continues until the first car in line is struck. When multi-vehicle rear-end collisions happen, the driver who caused the initial impact is usually liable for all subsequent collisions.
  • Hit-and-run. One all-too-common situation is when a rear-end driver strikes another car and then drives off instead of providing assistance and their contact information. When this situation happens, our Cherry Hill rear-end accident lawyers work with investigators and the police to try find the responsible driver. If the driver cannot be found, we file a claim with your own uninsured/underinsured (UM/UIM) carrier on your behalf or on behalf of anyone in your vehicle.
  • Stopping short. The driver in front may have slammed on his/her brakes due to an emergency (such as a big pothole, a deer crossing, a child chasing a ball, or a driver cutting in front of him/her without warning). Stopping short generally doesn’t excuse a rear-end accident because the driver in the rear is supposed to leave enough distance in the event of such an emergency.

What types of injuries do Cherry Hill rear-end accident victims suffer?

Common rear-end accident injuries include:

  • Whiplash
  • Soft-tissue injuries
  • Back pain
  • Shoulder and neck pain
  • Broken bones/fractures
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Traumatic amputation/loss of limb
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Scarring and disfigurement

Our Cherry Hill rear-end accident lawyers work with your doctors and our network of physicians when necessary to fully explain (to insurance companies and juries) what injuries you have, the medical care you’ll need, any complications that may arise, the cost of your care, and every way your injuries are affecting your life. Many rear-end accident injuries require long-term rehabilitative care with physical therapists and other types of care providers.
