Helping Rear-End Collision Victims Since 1999

In a rear-end collision, the victims often never see it coming. When they do, they may brace the steering wheel — resulting in equally serious injuries.

At Avila & Shaddow, we are familiar with the unique and severe injuries associated with rear-impact car accidents. We work to make sure that our clients obtain the proper diagnosis and treatment, and we vigorously pursue maximum compensation from the parties responsible for the car crash.

Contact our Woodland Hills rear-end car accident lawyers at 866-450-4LAW to preserve your right to full compensation for your car accident injuries. We offer a free consultation and take cases across the greater Los Angeles area and throughout Southern California.

A Rear-End Accident Can Result In Serious Injury

Airbag injuries, whiplash in the neck or back and other injuries resulting from a rear-end collision can be debilitating.

When one vehicle slams into the rear of another stopped at an intersection, most of that energy is transferred to the car in front. Occupants are snapped backward upon impact, then violently forward. The driver and/or passengers often suffer serious injuries to the head, face or chest, as well as arms, hands and thumbs, as they strike the steering column, dashboard, ceiling or seat back. Additionally, when the vehicle in behind strikes the vehicle in front, the force is often great enough to cause the airbags to deploy and result in airbag injuries.

At Avila & Shaddow, we have extensive experience in handling all types of car accident injuries, including:

  • Head injuries and brain trauma
  • Back and neck injury, including whiplash
  • Fracture of the arm, wrist, or hand
  • Knee injury and other joint injuries
  • Facial injuries and internal injuries
  • Fatal injuries
  • Other serious injuries

Compassionate Guidance Following A Rear-End Motorcycle Accident

When a motorcyclist is rear-ended at an intersection, the outcome is exponentially more severe than when a car or other motor vehicle is rear-ended. There is nothing to serve as a barrier between the motorcycle rider and the colliding vehicle behind the rider. Even at reduced speeds, when a motorcyclist is rear-ended by another vehicle, the result is likely to be catastrophic or even fatal. We offer empathetic, yet aggressive, representation to the families of serious and fatal motorcycle accidents in Southern California.

Obtaining Compensation For Rear-End Collision Injuries

The fault for a rear-end car accident is usually clear, but we have access to accident reconstruction specialists and professional investigators if fault is contested, or if there is evidence that a third-party's actions contributed to the accident. For example, if the vehicle had defective brakes or improperly repaired brakes that failed, the manufacturer of defective brakes or the party responsible for the shoddy brake repair may also be held financially accountable for their negligence.
