Helping the injured get the compensation they need and deserve
These types of car accidents are very common in Ohio and western Pennsylvania. They can happen on highways or city streets. Rear-end accidents can also cause serious injuries that require extensive medical treatment. The car accident attorneys at Gervelis Law Firm help injured victims recover financial compensation.
In most cases, the driver in the rear vehicle is considered to be at fault for a rear-end accident. The driver may have been distracted, speeding, driving recklessly or driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. Our attorneys fight to hold these negligent drivers accountable for the accidents they cause.
But these cases can sometimes be complicated. The driver may deny responsibility. Their insurance company will try to pay you as little as possible. They may even suggest that you were somehow to blame for causing the accident, even if your car was the one that was rear-ended.
We know the tactics insurance companies use to try to avoid their responsibility, and we don't put up with them. That's why our legal team investigates your accident. We know where to look for evidence that proves the other driver's negligence and forces the insurance company to take your claim seriously.
Experienced attorneys who don't stop fighting for you
Out team examines every document related to your accident, including accident reports and medical records. We identify witnesses and interview them ourselves. If needed, we may even consult an accident reconstruction expert. We take the time to build a strong case that proves you were the victim of negligence.
Even at low speeds, a rear-end accident can cause injuries such as whiplash, other head and neck injuries and broken bones. At higher speeds, injuries can be more serious. We seek damages that include medical expenses for past and future treatment of your injury, as well as lost wages for any time you were unable to work. We can also seek noneconomic damages, such as pain and suffering.
Many times, we are able to resolve cases with a negotiated settlement. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators who will work to reach a settlement with the insurance company that meets your needs. But we are also skilled litigators who prepare every case as if we are going to trial. We can advise you on the best strategy to pursue maximum compensation.
