New York Rear-End Accident Attorneys

Aggressive Advocacy and Skillful Counsel

The highways, roads, and streets in New York City’s five boroughs and the surrounding suburbs are often highly congested, making rear-end accidents one of the most common types of auto collisions. Depending on the force of impact, these collisions can be serious, resulting not only in vehicle damage, but also severe injuries. If you were hurt in a rear-end accident caused by another driver’s negligence, you may be eligible to recover the economic and non-economic damages you suffered.

At The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP, we provide committed counsel to clients who have been hurt in rear-end collisions. With more than 80 years of experience fighting for the rights of victims who have suffered serious injuries due to the carelessness of others, we know what it takes to secure the compensation you deserve.

Working to Recover Your Rightful Compensation

Many people have the misconception that rear-end crashes do not result in serious injuries — but often, this is not the case. When drivers fail to pay attention or maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front of them and collide with it, the occupants of the front vehicle can suffer severe, lifelong, and debilitating injuries. These can range from broken bones, nerve damage, soft tissue injuries, brain injuries, paralysis, and other injuries that require extensive medical treatment and result in time lost from work.

At The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP, we represent clients who have been seriously injured in a broad scope of rear-end accidents, including those caused by:

  • Driver inattention
  • Texting while driving
  • Carelessness or recklessness
  • Driving too closely
  • Aggressive driving
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Fatigued driving

The attorneys at The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP understand how a rear-end accident injury can affect your life and livelihood. We know how to value your injuries and work diligently to ensure you obtain the monetary recovery you are rightfully entitled.

Relentless Representation to Hold the Negligent Party Accountable

Although rear-end accidents might seem straightforward, establishing liability in these types of collisions can be complex — especially if multiple vehicles were involved. These types of crashes must be carefully investigated and skillfully negotiated to ensure the negligent driver answers for their carelessness. The legal team at The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP has deep insight regarding the nuances of rear-end collisions and know what it takes to achieve the best possible outcome in your case.

If you suffered what qualifies as a “serious injury” under New York Insurance Law, you may be eligible to file a personal injury action against the driver responsible for the crash. While many rear-end accidents can be settled outside the courtroom, an insurance company may sometimes refuse to pay out a fair amount for your injuries. In these cases, it may be necessary to pursue litigation to recover your economic and non-economic damages.

At The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP, our legal team is comprised of seasoned litigators who possess the acumen necessary to fight for your rights — whether your rear-end accident case can be resolved through negotiations or litigation is required.
