Rear End Collisions

One of the most common types of car accidents is the rear-end collision. It is also a type of case in which victims are often injured twice: first, the property damage to their vehicle, and second, the physical injury suffered at the hands of the person who rear-ended them. At the North Carolina law firm of Powers Landreth, our lawyers will serve as zealous advocates to ensure that you are treated fairly.

Most cars today are designed to withstand the forces involved in a rear-end collision. However, the following injuries can still occur even when the vehicle appears to be only slightly damaged:

In some cases, the injuries are caused by the very systems that are designed to protect us, such as seat belts and air bags.

Insurance adjusters often assume that if your car is not severely damaged, you must not be severely injured. As a result, they will often try to pressure you into accepting a low-ball settlement offer. However, you may incur significant ongoing medical expenses, chronic pain and lost wages from your injury that insurance will not cover.

When you bring your rear-end collision claim to Powers Landreth, we make certain that you understand all of your options. We fully explain the legal, medical and financial issues that are involved in your case so you can effectively participate in decisions that affect your future. You should never allow yourself to be pressured into accepting a settlement before you have received competent and compassionate legal advice.

Client Reviews
My daughter had a second DUI and when it all seemed hopeless, Bill was able to get the charges dropped. This is a man who is extremely knowledgeable, yet still keeps his integrity which was impressive to me. He handles himself with dignity. If you hire him, you will have the best of the best, along with his expansive intellect and wisdom about the law. Please don’t feel hopeless, when you can hire such a great attorney to be on your side.
Bill Powers’ staff has handled several traffic citations for me over the years, and they exceeded my expectations each and every time. Would highly recommend anyone faced with a traffic citation or court case contact his office and they will handle it from there. M.C.
I utilized Bill Powers and his firm after my DUI infraction in December 2011. During my initial consultation he immediately made me feel at ease with his knowledge of the law and his confidence in moving forward. Not to mention a great personality. He filled me in on all the ramifications and the process as a whole. I am a realist, and did not expect miracles. But Bill is stickler for procedure and that is what you need in a crises such as this. It took a good year, and the results were more than I could ever anticipate or hope for. I would have paid more had I known the results ahead of time. If you find yourself in a similar situation, trust me, he is your go to lawyer. J SJ
