Pittsburgh Rear End Accident Lawyers

Experienced Pittsburgh Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyers Help Injured Victims Recover Compensation Following Rear-End Accidents

When you’ve been the victim of a rear-end collision and have suffered injuries and damages, you deserve to hold the other driver accountable to compensate you for your injuries and losses. With over 50 years of collective experience, the Pittsburgh rear end accident lawyers at Goodrich & Geist have fought to help accident victims recover maximum compensation from the other at-fault driver.

No one really expects to get involved in a motor vehicle accident. However, rear-end collisions are arguably the most surprising kind of accident for collision victims, because you rarely look behind you to see the other vehicle coming. Rear-end accidents are usually caused because the driver in the rear is following the vehicle in front too closely, or the vehicle in the rear is speeding or both. As a result, there is a presumption that the driver in the rear is responsible for a rear-end accident, as the law requires all drivers to follow vehicles in such a way as to be able to safely stop in all scenarios.

Frequently Asked Questions about Rear-End Accidents in Pittsburgh, PA

Can I still recover compensation if I was partially at-fault for my rear-end accident?

Yes. Pennsylvania law incorporates a comparative negligence rule. Under this rule, an injured party can recover compensation so long as he or she is not more than 50 percent responsible for his or her accident and injuries. However, the injured party’s ultimately financial recovery will be reduced by his or her percentage of fault. For example, if you suffer $100,000 in damages and are found to be 10 percent at fault for your accident, your recovery will be reduced by $10,000 to reflect your 10 percent share of fault.

How long do I have to file a lawsuit following my rear-end accident?

Under Pennsylvania law, you generally have two years from the date of your accident in which to file a lawsuit to seek compensation for your injuries and damages. If you don’t file suit before the expiration of the statute of limitations in your case, the court may permanently dismiss your lawsuit and you can lose out on your right to seek compensation from those responsible for your accident.
