Even at low speed, rear-end car accidents can cause significant injuries. At high speed, these crashes often result in severe or permanent harm. Some attorneys make the mistake of assuming an open-and-shut case or settling too quickly.
At E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy, we take rear-end accidents seriously because we’ve seen the long term impact on our clients. We know that the other driver may not accept blame and that the first offers from the insurance company are unlikely to cover your losses. Our experienced lawyers thoroughly prepare your case to obtain the full compensation you need and deserve.
We’ve prepared a valuable list of things to do (and not do) in the case of an automobile accident.

How to Pursue Legal Action After a Car Accident
E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy has handled thousands of car accidents in New York State, from soft tissue injuries to fatal collisions. We have seen enough rear-end crashes to understand the issues in proving liability and damages. We conduct a proper investigation, using experts when necessary to establish that the other driver was speeding, following too close, talking or texting on a cell phone, or otherwise negligent.
We have represented people injured in rear-impact accidents in stop-and-go traffic, on freeway off-ramps, at traffic lights or while waiting to turn left. We are familiar with the range of injuries: severe back and neck injuries, face and chest injuries from hitting the steering wheel or seat-back, broken arms and shoulder injuries, and the chronic pain from whiplash strains. We work with your medical providers and other experts to calculate damages for hospital bills, future surgery or medical care, lost earnings, permanent disability, and pain and suffering.
