Portland Rear-End Accident Lawyers
Our personal injury attorneys never back down
Rear-end car accidents are common in Portland and throughout the state. People who are injured in these types of crashes deserve financial compensation. Recovering compensation can be a difficult process. The experienced car accident lawyers at Jabar LaLiberty & Dubord, LLC have been fighting for the rights of the injured since 1979.
A rear-end crash can happen on Cumberland Avenue, Route 25, I-95 or on a Portland side street. One vehicle crashes into another from behind. Depending on the force of the crash, people in the car in front can be left with whiplash, broken bones or injuries to the head, neck, back, arm or wrist.
When you’ve been injured in a rear-end accident in Portland, you may need surgery, hospitalization, medication, physical therapy and follow-up appointments with doctors. The medical expenses can add up very quickly and you may not be sure how to pay them. If you miss time from work, there is less money coming in.
