Applicability to Rear-End Accidents

All of the usual defenses may come into things when a rear-end accident happens. If any of the defenses are found and applied against you, you could well find yourself in an unfortunate situation where it appears that nobody is liable to pay for the accident and you to pay the bills out of pocket. The very common mistake which people make is when they see their case only from the perspective of themselves. People think “I got hit from behind so it cannot be my fault…therefore it must be the other driver’s fault.” Sadly, exclusion one person’s liability does not always equal liability on the other party. In Texas, and thus in Corpus Christi, there is unfortunately also the possibility no one being liable. To maximize the chances of the other party being held liable, call one of Carabin Shaw’s Corpus Christi Rear End Liability attorneys today. We are here to help you and your family get the award you deserve.

What You Can Learn From This

One way that sneaky insurance adjusters will try and spoil your claim is when they calling you and get you on record agreeing that a cause of the accident was a “sudden emergency” or that the traffic “stopped suddenly.” They may even start this off when they say “we will in all probability just accept our liability but I really need a statement recorded from you to finish up the investigation.” Then they ask you leading questions:

Adjuster: “You really didn’t do anything that caused this wreck did you?”
You: “No, I didn’t.”
Adjuster: “the traffic just suddenly stopped and you really had to slam on your brakes but there was really nothing you could do, correct?”
You: “sure, that’s right.”
Adjuster: “That’s what our insured said. That it wasn’t your fault because there wasn’t any way you could stop and she couldn’t either when the traffic stopped suddenly. You agree with that too, don’t you?
You “sure, oh yes.”

Congratulations. You just helped them prepare their defense. You can fully expect to letter denying coverage shortly in the mail.


The above verbal exchange with the adjuster is only one way that injured victims can get tricked by an experienced adjuster into doing damage to their own case. Do not ever make the real mistake of thinking that because the adjuster seems friendly and you got rear-ended that the insurance company is just going to accept legal liability and pay you for your claim. These folks have all too many tricks up their sleeves and will pull them to damage or destroy your claim. You need advice from a Corpus Christi Rear End Liability accident lawyer well before you talk to any insurance adjuster and you should never, ever agree to any statement being recorded or signed by you without your own legal representation to assist and advise you.

Call Carabin Shaw for your free consultation before you hurt your own claim by being tricked. In injury cases our initial consultation is always free of charge and we charge no legal fees for handlining your claim unless we get you a recovery for your case.
