Rear-End Auto Accidents

Chicago Rear-End Auto Accident Attorneys

Chicago rear-end auto accidents are one of the most common types of traffic collisions. In fact, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation, more than 24,970 people were injured in rear-end collisions in 2011 alone. Rear-end car accidents, though common, can still result in serious injuries, such as whiplash and head injuries, and fatalities.

The Chicago auto accident attorneys at Cogan & Power, P.C. have considerable experience representing the victims of all types of auto accidents, including rear-end accidents, distracted driving accidents, pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents, and fatal car accidents. Our comprehensive legal representation, extensive litigation experience, and considerable accident and injury knowledge has resulted in numerous substantial verdicts and settlements for our clients.

Moreover, we pride ourselves on the exceptional client service and attention that we provide to each and every client. We are personally invested in our clients’ overall well-being and, as a result, we have developed lasting friendships with many of our former clients. If you cannot come to our offices in downtown Chicago, we will come to you.

If you or a loved one has been injured or died in a rear-end accident, contact our office at (312) 477-2500 to schedule a free consultation with one of our dedicated Chicago auto accident lawyers.

Legal Complexities Associated with Rear-End Auto Accidents

Rear-end auto accidents happen when a car collides with the car in front of it. Often times, one rear-end collision will result in chain reaction of traffic collisions, in which subsequent rear-end collisions occur.

Under Illinois law, there is a presumption that the rear-ending motorist is at fault for the collision. This presumption of liability can be rebutted, however, in certain situations, such as chain reaction rear-end collisions or collisions caused by unavoidable traffic hazards.

Because rear-end accidents can involve certain legal complexities regarding fault and comparative negligence, it is important to consult with a skilled Chicago rear-end auto accident lawyer. At Cogan & Power, our knowledgeable Chicago auto accident attorneys focus on representing the victims of car crashes and other motor vehicle accidents and, as such, we are able to anticipate and manage various legal complexities. Moreover, we understand the importance of a comprehensive factual investigation and we work with the appropriate auto accident experts to assemble the necessary evidence for a case.

After we have conducted a comprehensive legal analysis, we will vigorously advocate on your behalf to get you the compensation you need and deserve, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages (past and future)
  • Property damages
  • Disfigurement
  • Disability
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of normal life
