Back-End Traffic Accidents Can Lead to Serious Injuries
If another driver slammed into the rear of your vehicle in Hillsborough County, Florida, they could be responsible for your injuries, expenses, and suffering under Florida Statute §627.737. In many cases, rear-end accidents occur because a driver is drunk, distracted, driving recklessly, or just acting carelessly.
Some ways these accidents occur include:
- Following too closely
- Failing to obey a traffic signal or sign
- Failing to react to a hazard or stopped traffic
- Speeding or driving too fast for conditions
- Failing to heed changing weather or road conditions
Injuries in this type of collision can vary depending on the speed of impact, size of each vehicle, and many other factors. Some injuries caused by rear-end collisions include:
- Whiplash, including chronic pain and other lasting impairment
- Spinal cord injury
- Traumatic brain injury
- Broken bones
- Loss of limb or loss of use of a limb
- Burns and scarring
- Internal injuries
- Other serious and permanent injuries
If you suffered one of these injuries or another serious or permanent injury as a result of a rear-end collision, we are here to review your case. If we think we can help you hold the at-fault driver responsible based on the details of your accident, we will pay for the investigation into your accident, your insurance claim and negotiations, and your lawsuit, if necessary. We receive our attorney’s fees from the settlement or payout we recover on your behalf. We only get paid out of this financial recovery. If we do not confirm a payout in your case, we do not get paid.

Recoverable Damages in a Riverview Rear-End Collision
At Distasio Law Firm, we will collect proof of your losses related to your injuries and accident. We can then present this proof to the insurance company and pursue a claim based on the fair value of your case. We will negotiate with the insurance company as long as they show an intention to reach a just payout based on the proof we present. If we do not believe the insurance company intends to pay you a fair settlement, we can proceed with the litigation of your case.
Whether through an insurance claim or civil lawsuit, the damages potentially available in rear-end accident compensation include:
- Current and future treatment and care costs
- Ongoing medical expenses and other related costs
- Current and future missed income
- Reduced earning capacity
- Miscellaneous expenses
- Pain and suffering damages
- Diminished quality of life
- Other intangible damages
Some people may also be eligible to recover wrongful death damages. These damages cover the financial and emotional losses suffered by surviving family members of those who pass away from their accident injuries. Those who qualify for wrongful death damages are listed under Florida Statute §768.21.
Time Limits on a Riverview Rear-End Accident Lawsuit
Florida law sets a deadline for filing a car accident lawsuit under Florida Statute §95.11. If you were the victim of a back-end accident in Riverview and need to pursue a personal injury case, you generally have up to four years to file the initial documents in your case. However, if a family member passed away due to injuries from the accident and a wrongful death action is necessary, you only have up to two years to file your case.
At Distasio Law Firm, we can ensure you understand and meet all applicable deadlines in your back-end wreck case as long as you contact our lawyers with enough time to do so. It is imperative to meet these deadlines, or you could lose the right to hold the at-fault driver accountable in a jury trial or a trial in front of a judge.
