Liability in Rear-End Accidents in Temecula
Rear-end accidents are some of the most frequent and severe accidents on the road. Although many people think that a driver of a vehicle that rear-ends another vehicle is always at fault for the accident, this is not always true. It always depends on the facts. Therefore, whenever you have been injured in a rear-end collision, it is critical our trustworthy law firm on your side, to investigate the facts and determine who in fact is at fault.
Common causes of rear-end accidents include:
- Following too closely
- Worn tires
- Distracted driving
- Drunk or impaired driving
- Driver fatigue
- Failure to adjust to poor weather conditions
- Speeding/driving too fast for the roadway conditions
- Brake failure
- Poor road maintenance
- Tail light failure or malfunction
Often, insurance companies will downplay the effects of a rear-end collision and refuse to pay damages for the accident. This can leave you stuck with paying expensive medical bills that you cannot afford. Regardless of the circumstances of your crash, our experienced lawyers can help you stand up to the insurance companies to ensure that you are fairly compensated for your damages.

Should I provide a recorded statement to the insurance company?
It is our strong recommendation that this not be done without legal representation so as not to jeopardize your claim. The reality is that insurance claims adjusters are skilled at asking questions that are designed to result in the reduction or denial of your claim. Insurance companies are businesses, and they are in business to make money. Their lawyers often try to use recorded statements in order to minimize or deny the value of accident claims. You need us to help you.
Should I inform the other party's insurance company about the accident?
To pursue the claim, the other party’s insurance company needs to be contacted. However, the other party's insurer — and likely your insurer — may take something that you said and manipulate your statement in order to minimize or altogether deny your accident claim. Again, contact us as soon as possible after your accident, as we can handle any further communication with the insurance companies to ensure no misunderstandings occur and you claim is not jeopardized. Also, if the other party's insurer contacts you for information, you are not obliged to make any statements. Instead, refer the insurer to your attorney.
Should I inform my insurance company that I was involved in a crash?
Yes. Waiting to notify your insurer could result in your accident not being covered. However, when you contact the insurance company, provide only the facts of the case and avoid making any statements about who was at fault. You should contact a personal injury lawyer before making any more statements to the insurance company.
