Whatever the underlying cause may be, the number one type of car accident in San Diego is the rear-end accident. There are a variety of scenarios in which these accidents may occur, but all involve some form of negligence, or lack of attention on the part of the rearmost driver. Even the most attentive of motorists is likely to have experienced at least one moment where a split-second of distraction meant you became closer than you would like to driving into the back of another vehicle, so it is easy to understand why the propensity for distracted driving leads to thousands of rear-end accidents, both in San Diego and across the United States.
While we are, of course, loathe to state that there are positive sides to a car accident, you can at least rest assured that the frequency of San Diego rear-end accidents means that your attorney has extensive experience in successfully handling this type of case. If you feel you may be eligible to file for damages following a collision, a San Diego rear-end accident attorney from The Law Offices of Eugene G. Bruno could be your key to maximum compensation.
Rear-end accidents can happen in pretty much any situation, although some of the most frequent locations of San Diego rear-end accidents include traffic lights, where a speeding, intoxicated, or otherwise distracted driver does not notice that the light has turned red and the cars in front have come to a stop. While a rear-end accident may be considered a minor accident, the resulting injuries, such as whiplash, may have a considerable adverse impact on your quality of life. If you have been injured in a rear-end accident, a San Diego attorney could help you to recover compensation in respect of your loss of earnings as you recover, the medical expenses you have incurred and are expected to incur in future due to your injuries, and other associated damages.
