You’ve probably passed them on the road: accidents involving multiple vehicles and multiple drivers. These accidents can happen on Florida streets for a number of reasons.

Rear end shunt accidents happen when one car stops and the car behind them crashes into that first vehicle. Rear end collisions can cause serious injuries, including head injuries, facial injuries, spinal cord and back injuries, whiplash, and even fatalities. This is because a car suddenly braking or being shoved forward can snap your neck, back, and head forward violently. You can crash into your steering wheel or an airbag with enough force to cause serious injury.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
