Rear-End Collision Lawyer
Rear-end collisions are one of the most common types of accidents across America. Often, a rear-end collision occurs at low speeds, meaning it’s little more than a nuisance that results in minor property damage and minimal injuries. However, if you’re in a rear-end accident with a truck or commercial vehicle, the damage can be much, much worse.
Commercial vehicles, especially semi-trucks, are usually much heavier than a typical car. In fact, a fully-loaded tractor-trailer can weigh up to 80,000 pounds — and the average car weighs around 3,000 pounds. When a massive vehicle rear-ends a smaller vehicle, even at lower speeds, the back of the smaller vehicle could be destroyed, and the passengers could be severely injured.
If you are injured in a rear-end collision with a commercial vehicle, it’s important for you to understand your rights. In general, you can hold the driver liable for your injuries, and in some cases, you can also sue the trucking company and other parties. The attorneys at Auger & Auger can help you figure out who is at fault for the wreck, and how much compensation you may be entitled to.
