Lafayette lawyers leading the way
Many car accidents involve rear-end collisions. While these types of accidents are often considered minor, they can cause very serious injuries and have a significant impact on your life. An experienced car accident attorney at Vaughan & Vaughan can fight for your rights and help you recover financial compensation.
In a rear-end collision, the driver in the rear vehicle is generally considered to be at fault. But it's not always that simple. The driver may deny responsibility and suggest that you were somehow to blame. For example, you may be accused of coming to an abrupt stop or failing to signal before turning.
And the insurance company may take the other driver's side. Insurance companies are only interested in keeping payments as low as possible. They may try to assign most of the blame to you in an attempt to avoid paying you.
A rear-end collision can cause a wide range of injuries - from cuts and bruises or broken bones to brain and spinal cord injuries. Depending on how badly you were hurt, recovery can take weeks, months or even longer. Some injuries may cause permanent damage. You may also suffer a loss of income if you are left unable to work.

We focus on building the strongest case we can. We start by investigating your rear-end collision, reviewing all documentation and gathering evidence. We also identify and interview witnesses who saw what happened. And if needed, we have access to accident reconstruction experts who can help us build our case.
In addition, we determine the true amount of damages you have suffered. These include all past and future medical expenses related to your injuries. It includes any lost wages while you were left unable to work. It may also include other damages such as pain and suffering and emotional distress.
Fighting for your rights
Insurance companies know we are always ready to fight for our clients and often willing to enter settlement negotiations. But any settlement offer has to meet your needs. If a settlement doesn't work for you, we will fight for you in court, where we have won many awards for clients. Our focus is on getting the best resolution possible.
Some people think they don't need a lawyer following a rear-end collision. But the insurance company simply wants you to take what they are offering and go away. You may be eligible for much more financial compensation than simply the damages you have suffered. And you very well could need that money to deal with accident-related expenses for the rest of your life.
