Car accidents are a mess.
People get hurt, traffic gets delayed, cars are totaled, nothing positive comes from car accidents.
And to top it off, you have to deal with insurance companies and layers.
Rear-end accidents are especially bad because you never even see them coming. There's no way to avoid them, you just have to hope it never happens.
But, at least with a rear-end accident, you don't have to pay for a lawyer because it was definitely the other driver's fault.
Many people believe that because rear-end accidents presume automatic fault on the part of the other driver that they won't need a lawyer.
Usually, that's true.
The other driver hit you from behind; there's no way you could be to blame for this, right?
Don't be so sure.
In the article below, we will discuss why it might be a good idea to hire a car accident attorney even if you were rear-ended.
