At Cohen & Cohen, P.C., we know the importance of being able to find a compassionate and experienced rear end collisions lawyer when you have been in a rear end accident. Any accident can be frightening but so often a car will be hit from behind when the car is going at slow speeds or stopped at a sign, light, or traffic hazard.
And so often, the person who gets hit while they are stopped is paying attention to the signals and traffic in front of them, while the person who hits them is not paying attention to the road and what is in front of them.
To add more injury to the insult of being hit while patiently adhering to the rules of the road, if your car was stopped or going slow, the laws of physics tell us that the stopped car is going to receive more of the impact and most likely, more of the damages.

- Looked at a map or a piece of paper with directions on it
- Was eating or drinking
- Leaned or glanced over to look for something
