Rear-End Collisions

Rear-End Collisions

Rear-end collisions are a leading cause of damage to the neck, spine and connective tissues, commonly known as a “whiplash injury.”

Sometimes a motorist who is struck from behind will not notice immediately that he or she is injured. Often, it takes a period of hours to a day or two for an accident victim to become fully aware of the damage that has occurred.

Goldstein & Goldstein, LLP, in East Orange, New Jersey, has spent more than 30 years negotiating settlements and winning jury verdicts for clients with neck and back injuries caused by negligent drivers.

Newark Rear-End Collision Attorney

In our years as a personal injury law firm, we have witnessed the variety of situations that contribute to rear-end vehicle collisions, including:

  • Failures to stop for red lights/stop signs
  • Inattention and sudden stops in stop-and-go traffic
  • Distraction due to cellphone use and texting
  • Excess speed on highways, freeways and interstates
  • Chain-reaction collisions involving multiple drivers of varying negligence

Crossing The Verbal Threshold

New Jersey’s “no-fault” vehicle law provides a clear path for accident victims to receive compensation for medical treatments, usually from one’s own auto insurer or the New Jersey Property-Liability Insurance Guaranty Association (NJPLIGA).

Unfortunately, a legal provision known commonly as “the verbal threshold” prohibits injured parties from holding insurers accountable for damages for pain and suffering. Under the law, in order to recover damages for pain and suffering injured parties must prove they have suffered permanent injuries and that those injuries were caused by the negligence of someone else.

Our Essex County car accident attorneys take pride in effectively determining fault for their clients’ injuries and responsibility for paying for medical bills, rehabilitation costs and other related damages. We have experience successfully challenging and working around New Jersey’s insurance-industry friendly compensation laws to achieve maximum monetary results for our injured clients.
