Des Moines Rear-End Collision Lawyers

Rear-end collisions are among the most common types of car accidents, and their frequency calls attention to several tough realities about driving. Even the safest drivers can be victimized by a crash, and we have a long way to go in compelling many Iowa drivers to maintain safe following distances and focus on the road.

Iowa Rear-Impact Accident Attorneys

Auto insurance companies put great effort into minimizing their liability in rear-end collisions — and their constant goal is to settle claims for as little as possible. However, we know that injuries can be severe, requiring costly medical treatment and sometimes even resulting in permanent disability. To work with an Iowa rear-end collision attorney who will fight for a fair and just recovery in your case, please turn to us at Galligan Reid PC.

Fault Is Not the Only Important Issue in Auto Accident Litigation

Most rear-impact car and trucking accidents are caused by some level of negligence by the rear-ending driver — from tailgating to intoxicated driving or texting behind the wheel. Our legal team is adept at identifying the role of these extremely dangerous driving practices in a crash and pursuing compensation for our clients accordingly.

Although circumstances that bring fault for a rear-end crash into question are fairly rare, the extent of victims' injuries is often contested by insurers and defense attorneys. If you suffered a blow to the head or may now be facing long-term, debilitating neck or back pain due to the whiplash effect of your crash, for example, we have the resources to substantiate those injuries and your right to substantial compensation.

Comprehensive Investigation, Damage Assessment and Legal Guidance

Our law firm brings together extensive professional resources to help our clients — from accident reconstruction experts and biomechanical engineers for analysis of your crash to economists prepared to accurately assess your losses and future financial needs. Our use of advanced video technology and presentation software also contributes to our success in negotiations, mediations and at trial.

Please do not underestimate your need for legal representation if you have been hurt in a rear-end collision. Obtaining a just, fair financial outcome will likely demand a lawyer prepared to stand up to the insurance companies. Please contact us and request a free consultation today.
