Back-Up Collisions

Injured? We're Here to Help!

Back-up collisions can occur when a negligent or distracted driver hits a person, object or other car while backing out of a driveway or parking spot. Although all vehicles come equipped with rear-view mirrors, they are not always helpful in detecting small children or objects close to the ground. For this reason, most victims are often young children.

While the vehicle may not be traveling at high-speeds, the impact can be enough to cause serious injuries, including:

  • Broken bones
  • Abrasions
  • Head trauma
  • Paralysis

If you or someone you love has been injured in such an accident, you should not hesitate to pursue compensation for the losses that you have suffered.

With the help of our firm, you may be able to recover compensation for:

  • Hospital bills & other medical expenses
  • Past and future loss of income
  • Costs of emergency transportation
  • Pain and suffering & mental anguish
  • Funeral expenses (for wrongful death)
