Wheaton Rear-End Collision Lawyer

Compensation for Whiplash and Neck Injuries

A rear-end collision can cause serious neck injuries that can affect your life for months or years. Unfortunately, many insurance companies offer little or nothing in the way of compensation for "soft tissue" injuries that do not involve broken bones. It may take a lawyer's help to obtain the compensation you deserve.

At the law firm Marquardt & Belmonte, P.C., our lawyers represent people injured in all types of auto accidents, including rear-end collisions, in Wheaton, Naperville and other communities in the DuPage County area. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.

Issues in Rear-End Collisions

Whenever you are struck from behind by another vehicle, the other driver is usually at fault. While the other driver's insurance company may not dispute liability, they may dispute your injuries.

Cars today are designed with strong bumpers that can withstand low-speed impacts with little visible damage. The insurance company is likely to argue that if your vehicle was not seriously damaged, you could not have suffered a serious injury.

Unfortunately, our bodies were not designed to withstand the forces involved in a rear-end impact. We can suffer significant whiplash-style injuries that damage the muscles, ligaments, disks and other tissues in the neck. Our lawyers will ensure that you receive proper medical care to both treat the injury and document its severity. Recovering your health may be a long process. However, you should not discontinue treatment until you get better, as the insurance company will assume that if you are no longer injured.
