Massachusetts and Rhode Island Rear-End Car Crash Lawyers
Rear-end car accidents are the single most common kind of traffic accident in the United States.
In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), out of 6 million annual auto accidents in America, more than 40% (about 2.5 million) involve rear-end collision.
Because they are so common, and given that they sometimes occur at lower speeds, there is a misleading perception out there that rear-end car accidents are somehow less serious than other crashes.
The truth is that any traffic accident is capable of causing serious injuries, leaving victims with a mountain of medical bills, excessive time away from work, prolonged physical pain or disability, and real emotional distress.
Victims are often entitled to financial compensation for those damages, which can be substantial. Unfortunately, the insurance companies on the other side are usually more interested in protecting their own wallets than in helping victims in financial need.
At Bottaro Law Firm, LLC, we know the true costs of rear-end accidents first hand. We understand that even so-called “moderate injuries” can cause real disruption in your life. You don’t deserve to have your life changed because someone else chose to drive irresponsibly, and you certainly shouldn’t have to pay for those disruptions out of your own pocket.

We provide aggressive, strategic, and effective legal representation to each of our clients. Our goal is to handle all the hassles of litigation for you so that you can take the time you need to heal and move on.

Rear-end car accidents often involve significant property damage as well, including damage to your car. The value of that damage may become an additional factor in your lawsuit.
A Special Note on Whiplash
Despite its reputation, whiplash can be an incredibly serious and sometimes-debilitating injury. That is important to know because whiplash is, by far, the most commonly reported injury in rear-end collisions. Likewise, rear-end accidents are the single greatest cause of whiplash worldwide.
Experts estimate that at least 20% of people involved in rear-end collisions experience whiplash to some significant degree.
The severity of whiplash becomes more apparent when you understand how it happens.
Whiplash is essentially a spinal injury. Rear-end accidents are forceful and occur without warning, so victims rarely have a chance to brace themselves for impact. As a result, the head and neck are swiftly rocked back and forth in a whip-crack-like fashion. Because the spine was not braced for such a violent force, it is left vulnerable to dangerous strain or misalignment.
Whiplash strikes so quickly that you may not even immediately realize it happened to you.
If you have suffered whiplash in a rear-end collision, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your pain, suffering, medical bills, time away from work, diminished mobility, and more. The Massachusetts and Rhode Island rear-end car crash lawyers in our office can help you understand the full potential value of your claim.
