We help seriously injured victims of rear end car accidents across Florida, including, those in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, the Palm Beaches, the Florida Keys, Naples and Tampa


The most frequently occurring car accidents in Florida, the ones that Fort Lauderdale car accident lawyer Joseph Lipsky helps injured clients with the most often, particularly happening upon the roadways in Miami, Fort Lauderdale and the Palm Beaches are so-called rear end crashes. Rear end type accidents happen over a million times annually across the United States. These accidents happen when a car traveling behind another runs into it. Typically these types of crashes happen because the driver of the second, or following, vehicle is doing something other than watching the traffic and road in front of them.

Florida law has a rebuttable presumption which states that the second/following vehicle is the cause of rear end car accidents. This presumption may be overcome if there is proof that the first vehicle was negligent, for example, by stopping their car unexpectedly. Miami car accident lawyer Joseph Lipsky understands the importance of preserving the evidence from the scene of a rear end car accident and from the vehicles involved in the crash to insure that his clients prevail in recovering their maximum financial compensation for their injuries. Over the past 25 years, Miami car accident lawyer Joseph Lipsky has helped his injured clients recover tens of millions of dollars as compensation for their injuries, lost wages, medical bills and mental anguish.

Some of the most frequent causes of rear-end car accidents include, the following driver:

  • Using their phone to text, call or email
  • Driving too fast for changing weather conditions
  • Not paying attention to traffic control devices
  • Trying to beat traffic light while its changing from green to red

Rear end car accidents in Florida result in the occupants in the first vehicle being subjected to acceleration/deceleration forces. This means the following vehicle is traveling at a higher rate of speed than the vehicle it strikes, it delivers that additional force to the occupants in the first vehicle, causing them to be thrown against the back of their seats. Thereafter, as that force diminishes, the first vehicle’s occupants move forward, being restrained by their seat-belts. As the occupants of the first vehicle are often unaware that an accident is about to happen, their bodies are susceptible to being seriously injured. The driver and passengers in a vehicle which is struck from behind generally suffer what is commonly referred to as a “whiplash” type injury.

Miami rear end car accidents result in injuries, including:

  • spinal injuries
  • herniated discs
