Rear-end auto accidents can cause severe or minor damage to your auto. Regardless of the impact to your automobile, the injury to your body can be severe. You need someone who will stand up to the insurance company and fight for you. At D’Amico & Pettinicchi, LLC we stand up and advocate for you.

After a rear-end accident, our law firm is your advocate

Liability usually isn’t in dispute after a rear-end collision because the driver in the rear vehicle is strongly presumed to be at fault. However, the extent of the damages (and thus financial compensation) is almost always disputed, especially if the accident happened at a low speed. The insurance company may argue that you’re faking or exaggerating your symptoms, or that they were due to a pre-existing condition unrelated to the crash.

The reality is that even low-speed crashes can cause serious injuries, such as whiplash and even brain injuries, which can have a significant effect on your quality of life. That’s why it’s so important to have an attorney who will advocate relentlessly for your rights. When you speak with us, we listen to you, understand what the crash has done to you, answer your questions and explain your legal options. 

Once you retain us to represent you, we launch an immediate investigation to secure evidence, such as video footage or eyewitness testimony, before it disappears. We’ll contact the insurance company and direct them to send all communications to us, so that we can protect your interests and you can focus on healing. Our attorneys negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf, and while we’re often able to settle out of court, we’re always prepared to take them to trial, including honing our arguments and strategies in our in-house courtroom. We work this way because we know this isn’t just a case; it’s your life.


Remember, it’s critical that you act quickly, before evidence disappears and legal deadlines expire. Schedule your free, confidential consultation with a rear-end accident attorney who puts your interests first. Contact us today.
