Rear-End Accidents

Rear-end car accidents are often quite serious and can leave you suffering severe and debilitating injuries.

Any type of car accident is a serious matter. Even in a seemingly minor fender bender, the injuries you suffer can have major long-term impacts on both your health and your financial security. This is particularly true in rear-end car accidents. These are generally caused by the reckless actions of others involved. The Law Offices of Edward Chavez, Jr. helps you hold these drivers accountable, so you can get the compensation you need to recover in a claim.

As an experienced Albuquerque car accident attorney, Ed Chavez, Jr. is aggressive in representing injured clients in these types of claims.

In the majority of cases, it is the reckless and negligent actions of others which causes victims to be rear-ended. Ed helps victims get the compensation they need to recover in rear end accidents resulting from the following:

  • Speeding and going too fast for conditions;

  • Tailgating and other aggressive driving behaviors;

  • Running stop signs and traffic signals;
