Rear-End Collisions

Strong and Protective Advocacy for New Jersey Injury Victims for Over 35 Years

Proving responsibility in rear-end car accidents is not usually a problem in New Jersey. New Jersey law states that a driver who runs into the back of another vehicle is legally responsible for the resulting injuries and property damage, with very rare exceptions.

Experienced trial lawyer Michael P. Burakoff knows that the main difficulty with obtaining compensation after rear-end collisions has to do with proving that the accident caused compensable injuries. In other words, did the rear-end collision cause significant injuries that require surgery or lengthy rehabilitation?

Everyone is suspicious of anyone who cries "whiplash!" after a rear-end collision. Nevertheless, rear-end collisions often do cause serious, life-changing injury. Rear-end collision victims should not be denied fair compensation for real injuries due to skepticism by insurance companies, judges or juries. Morristown rear-end car collision lawyer Michael P. Burakoff has recovered millions of dollars for New Jersey accident victims, including rear-end collision victims. Read some of our case histories.
