Blake Williams, Prince Glover Hayes Attorney, Settles Rear End Collision Case

Blake Williams recently settled a rear end collision case on behalf of his client.  She was rear-ended as she was waiting to make a right hand turn at the intersection of University Boulevard between 21st Avenue East and 22nd Avenue East in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.  Blake’s client suffered injuries to her neck, back and hip, resulting in her receiving multiple steroid injections and lumbar medial branch blocks, as well as attending numerous physical therapy sessions. Fortunately, Blake was able to negotiate an ample settlement for his client.  The attorneys  at Prince Glover Hayes think all drivers should know these facts about rear-end collisions. These facts are from the Drive-Safely.Net website.

“For legal purposes, a rear-end collision is when a vehicle following another vehicle fails to stop in enough time to avoid colliding with the car in front of it. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) states that rear-end collisions are the most common type of car accident. They happen every eight seconds in the United States, which adds up to a staggering 2.5 million rear-end collisions every year.  Unfortunately, drivers and passengers in both vehicles can sustain serious injuries in this type of crash. This is true even when the vehicles were traveling at a low speed. Injuries and property damage can become more serious when multiple vehicles are involved, causing a domino effect with each car striking the car in front of it.”
