Liability in Rear-End Car Accidents
At Hutton & Hutton Law Firm, we proudly represent clients across the nation. The laws that regulate how car accidents are handled can differ significantly from state to state. For example, Kansas is a no-fault car insurance state. This means that after an accident, each party can seek compensation from their own insurance company, regardless of who was at fault.
If an insurance company attempts to undervalue or deny your claim, it may be time to get an attorney from our firm involved. Our rear-end accident lawyers are highly knowledgeable of car accident claims and can work to see that an insurance company treats your claim fairly. However, if litigation becomes necessary, we can provide clients with powerful representation.
Common Injuries: Whiplash
Whiplash is a serious condition and one of the most common injuries experienced in rear-end car accidents. Whiplash typically refers to soft tissue injuries to the neck and lower skull caused by the sudden jerking, or whipping motion, of the head. Whiplash can occur even at seemingly slow speeds and drivers may not be aware that they are injured right away.
Additionally, not all symptoms may be immediately apparent, which may influence a person’s decision to put off a visit to the doctor. If you have been in an auto accident, it is vital to seek medical treatment immediately.
Symptoms of whiplash can include:
- Headaches or migraines
- Fatigue and tiredness
- Stiffness and pain in the neck and shoulders
- Difficulty concentrating
- Numbness in the arms
