Protecting rear-end collision victims in Omaha
In a rear-end collision, if each vehicle is relatively the same size, the level of damage to both is about the same. Injuries, however, are another story. Injuries sustained by occupants of the first vehicle are often much worse than those of the rear vehicle. Have you been injured in a rear-end collision.

Bumpers protect vehicles, not passengers.
When properly designed, the rear bumper system is an important safety feature. A quality rear bumper system is designed to compress upon impact and absorb the force of a low impact auto collision. Today, there are questions about whether or not car companies are developing increasingly less reliable rear bumpers. These lower quality bumper systems are less absorbent and allow the brunt of the impact forces to be transferred to the occupants of the car.
Insurance companies do not protect your rights.
Did you know that the driver of the car that rear-ends another car is almost always considered at fault? Although this sounds straightforward, insurance adjusters work to minimize their liability and legal representation is often needed to ensure just compensation. Although serious injuries can result from what may appear to be a minor impact, insurance companies often argue that because the vehicles sustained little or no visible damage, the occupants of the vehicles could not have been injured. But, even low-velocity rear-end collisions can cause the passengers severe injuries like whiplash, spinal cord and lumbar trauma and head trauma.
Don’t go it alone.
Many people are unaware of the extent of their injuries and the resulting damages until weeks or even months after an accident. Even if you do not notice anything out of the ordinary, you need to seek medical attention and legal representation.
