Costa Mesa CA Rear-End Accident Attorney

Count on Carlton after your crash. We can help

One of the most common types of car accidents is rear-end accidents. As a result, it's easy for some people to think that such car accidents are not that serious. The reality is rear-end accidents often result in serious injuries, including whiplash, a type of neck injury.

Knowing what to do after a rear-end accident can be confusing. Different people might be telling you to do different things. Some might suggest calling your insurance company and doing nothing else. Others might say you should take the first offer you get from an insurance company for your accident-related expenses.

We believe you should contact an experienced rear-end accident attorney. That's why we want to meet with you at the Law Offices of Daniel C. Carlton in Costa Mesa. Attorney Carlton has more than 40 years of experience handling such complex cases. A lifelong resident of Southern California, he understands the legal system here and knows what needs to be done.

How did your rear-end accident happen?

Rear-end accidents happen for many different reasons. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Distracted drivers, including texting drivers
  • Speeding drivers who don't have time to slow down.
  • Tailgating drivers who follow the car in front of them too close.
  • Drivers who fall asleep at the wheel.
  • Inexperienced drivers who lose control of the car.

Is this how your accident happened? Or did your rear-end accident happen for another reason? Whatever the circumstances of your crash, we want to help you hold the driver who crashed into your car responsible for his or her actions.

What we can do to help you

In order to obtain the financial compensation you deserve for your rear-end accident, you will need to prove that the driver who crashed into your car behaved in a reckless or negligent manner. That might sound simple but the reality is rear-end accidents can be very complicated.

What makes these crashes so complex? Sometimes, the driver who caused your accident denies doing anything wrong. They might even try to blame you in some way. Their insurance company will likely believe them because they're searching for a way to pay you as little as possible - or nothing at all.

That's not right. That's why we want to meet with you as soon as possible. We know how to analyze accident reports. We know how to negotiate with insurance companies. If they refuse to cooperate, we're prepared to take them to court. Contact us and schedule your free case evaluation with a rear-end accident attorney you can count on after your crash - Daniel C. Carlton.
