Being the victim of a rear-end collision accident can be a shocking experience — you rarely see the other vehicle coming up from behind you, and even if you do, in many cases there is little you can do to avoid the accident, especially if you are stopped at a stop sign or red light or are stuck in traffic. When your vehicle has been rear-ended, in all likelihood the other driver is at fault for the accident. Even though a rear-end collision accident may seem like a straightforward claim, the insurance companies and defense law firms will do everything they can to avoid paying you the full compensation you need and deserve.

Our attorneys use their extensive experience and legal expertise, along with our firm’s technology and resources and connections with accident reconstruction and medical experts to persuasively demonstrate to the other side or to a jury the extent of your injuries and the economic and emotional toll they will take on your life, and how the other driver is liable to compensate you for your losses.
Our firm has secured thousands of settlements and verdicts, recovering hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation. Our attorneys have been recognized for their pioneering work, including being involved with the New Jersey Association for Justice, the National Trial Lawyers, and the American Association for Justice.

After you’ve been in a rear-end collision accident, pursuing a claim for the compensation you deserve can be a long, complicated, time- and resource-consuming process. The New Jersey rear-end collision accident attorneys at Drazin & Warshaw can help you to secure the financial compensation you need in an effective and efficient manner.
Our attorneys begin helping our rear-end collision accident attorneys by thoroughly investigating the accident, including collecting and reviewing evidence like the police accident report, accident scene photos, vehicle repair reports, and eyewitness statements. We work with accident reconstruction experts to effectively and persuasively explain how your accident occurred and how the other driver was at fault for the accident. We also help you fully document your damages, including medical bills, lost wages, and describing the pain and suffering and lost quality of life that you have endured, so that we can ensure that the financial recovery we obtain for you fully compensates you for all your past, ongoing, and future damages.
We are also constantly preparing to take your case to trial if it becomes necessary. Building a strong, persuasive legal claim shows the other side that we are serious about getting you maximum compensation and often helps us secure a full and fair settlement of your claim.
If you were rear-ended in an accident, the good news is that you likely were not responsible for the collision. That means you may be entitled to seek monetary compensation from the drivers and parties who were at fault for your rear-end collision. Contact Drazin & Warshaw today to set up a free, no-obligation consultation with one of our knowledgeable rear-end collision accident attorneys to discuss the details of your case and learn about how our firm can help you secure maximum financial recovery after your accident.
Although it can be tempting to just accept a settlement check after your rear-end collision accident so that you can pay some bills and begin to move on with your life, you should never accept a settlement without first speaking with an experienced rear-end collision accident attorney. An attorney can review any settlement offer you’ve received and can advise you as to whether it represents full and fair compensation for both your past and future damages. If necessary, an attorney can negotiate on your behalf to potentially obtain an even better settlement offer than the one you were given and allow you to maximize your compensation.
Potentially yes. Although there is a presumption that the rear vehicle in a rear-end collision accident is responsible for the accident (for failing to maintain a safe distance), the rear motorist can overcome the presumption by showing that the driver who got rear-ended contributed to the accident or there was another external cause of the accident. If it is shown that you carelessly or unlawfully cut off the driver who rear-ended you, under New Jersey’s modified comparative negligence rules your financial recovery may be reduced by your share of fault; if you are found to be more than 50 percent responsible for the accident, you may be precluded from compensation.
