Rear-End Accident Attorney in Detroit - Fraser & Souweidane
Considering the stop-and-go freeway traffic on I-75, distracted drivers who follow other vehicles too closely, and rush-hour commuters who accelerate and brake too quickly while in traffic, it's no surprise that rear-end crashes are among the most common types of car accidents in Detroit. Our attorneys know that rear-end crashes are also among the most preventable. If you've been injured after being struck from behind by another vehicle, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact Fraser & Souweidane today to discuss your legal options with a rear-end accident lawyer who can draw on extensive experience and resources.
Even rear-end accidents that occur at relatively slow speeds can result in serious car accident injuries including whiplash, internal injuries, or traumatic brain or spinal cord injuries. These accidents are almost never the fault of the front-most driver, who likely could have done nothing to avoid being hit. This is one reason why injuries can be severe. Occupants in the car often don't have time to brace for the crash.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a scenario that is similar to the following, contact an attorney immediately to learn about your rights:
- A drunk driver hit your car, SUV or motorcycle from behind while you were stopped at a red light, stop sign, or while allowing pedestrians to cross the street on a crosswalk.
- A driver was sending a text message while approaching a highway construction zone, failing to slow down their vehicle and crashing into your vehicle.
- A distracted driver was preoccupied with their radio or GPS while stuck in traffic, accelerating and braking suddenly immediately before your crash.
Of course, there are many other ways rear-end collisions can happen. No two accidents are the same. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions about your car accident.
We're ready to protect your rights
Our rear-end accident lawyers in Detroit understand that the days, weeks and months following an accident can be difficult and confusing.

When your accident was caused by somebody else's careless or negligent behavior, you deserve to be treated fairly.
