What To Do When You’re Rear Ended?

/ Car Accident /

NEW YORK – Rear-end collisions are the most common type of motor vehicle accident, and many Americans will be involved in one at some point in their lives. From an investigator’s standpoint, it’s often very easy to determine who’s at fault in a rear-end crash: it’s the driver who slammed into the back bumper of another car. However, these accidents come with a range of issues for victims, and many of them are left asking, What To Do When You’re Rear Ended?

We took this question to the New York car accident lawyers at Cellino & Barnes.

What To Do When You’re Rear Ended:

  • Take Notes – what happened in the moments leading up to the accident?
  • Injured?  Call 911 and get immediate medical attention
  • Contact the Police – a police report will be useful when filing a claim with the insurance company
  • Gather Information – You’ll want contact information for the other driver(s) involved, including name, phone number, address, and license number
  • Next Steps – These accidents often result in head, neck and spinal injuries. Even if you don’t experience any symptoms of an injury at first, they can develop over the next few days, weeks or even months. CALL AN EXPERIENCED CAR ACCIDENT LAWYER.

But, we were always in good hands as Brian and Maria are two of the hardest working and sincerest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They did a tremendous job.
