A rear end collision specifically refers to a vehicular crash that involves the front of one vehicle running into the rear of another vehicle – in many cases, the vehicle that’s hit is either stopped, or coming to a halt before being hit from behind.
According to a study recently distributed by the U.S Dept Of Transportation, it was stated that not only are rear-end crashes one of the most frequently-occurring types of car accidents (over 29% of all auto wrecks are a result of rear-end accidents), but they are also the source for a large number of serious injuries and fatalities. The study also detailed that drivers of 18 years old and YOUNGER were the most at risk, and that those in the 18-25 year old range were the most likely to be the people that are responsible for rear-ending another vehicle.

Citrin Law Community Outreach Programs
As responsible citizens in our respective Baldwin and Mobile county communities, at Citrin Law we also have initiated various driver education programs, to help teach Alabama drivers the dangers of driving while distracted – along with a host of other information about the consequences of being negligent drivers.
It is our goal to help our fellow Alabama residents be more aware on our roads, and to try and reduce the amount of auto accidents caused each year by driver error.
Insurance Companies & The Claim Process
In most cases, by lodging a personal injury claim, our lawyers will be dealing with insurance company adjusters that are from the company that issued the “at-fault” driver his / her insurance policy. It is VERY IMPORTANT to be aware that the insurance adjuster is NOT YOUR FRIEND.
It is NOT in their best interests to give you compensation for your injury. Each adjuster goes through very specific training to learn how to obtain information that can be used against you during the compensation claim process. Thankfully, our skilled team of attorneys are aware of the tactics that employ, and have the knowledge and resources to ensure that your best interests are catered to.
Ultimately, the staff at Citrin Law strongly believe that those who are responsible for your injuries should be held accountable.
