Voted Best Personal Injury Law Firm By Georgia Lawyers
Atlanta Rear-End Collision Lawyers
I called Matt after several people recommended him. He was very kind and did a very good job on my son’s case. We are very thankful for the work he did. Most importantly, he was never hard to reach and answered every question we had while going through the process. Matt is the only attorney I will ever call in the future.
My husband is a cyclist that did not fair well against an SUV recently. Matt and his team took phenomenal care of us, allowing us not to stress out (too much) about the little things. Matt and his team handled everything with professionalism. We know we made the right call.
So glad I hired this firm after my rearend car accident. Matt embodies the skill set and values I was looking for. He treats every case like a mini war, and was a zealous advocate on my behalf. And he did so in the most competent and skillful manner. He listened, was empathetic and understood my legal and nonlegal problems.
My 85-year old mom was in a motor vehicle accident with an uninsured motorist. His love, thoroughness and commitment to her case helped us through this accident and her cancer treatment. She underwent successful lobectomy and chemotherapy and is doing exceptionally well. We are immensely grateful.
It was important to me to get the maximum money I could for my broken neck and arm. After getting jerked around for months by State Farm, I interviewed several firms and chose Mr. Wetherington. I’m glad I did. He forced the insurance company to pay twenty times their last offer to me.
It is an honor to share my experience with Mr. Wetherington. He was able to get answers about what happened in my son’s wreck that other attorney’s were not able to do. I am so thankful for the work that he did and he was very thorough in his explanation of why the vehicle had a “defect.”
My case did not settle. The person that hit me only had minimal policy limits. Fortunately, I had my own insurance, which should have provided more money. My insurance company, Allstate, treated me like garbage. We had to sue them and go all the way to trial, which we won.

Matt Wetherington is the attorney who is suing the booting companies. We need to do everything we can as a community to help him succeed. God bless you, Mr. Wetherington!
The best! Great people and always friendly.

According to a comprehensive study published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), rear-end collisions are consistently the most common type of multi-vehicle crash in the United States. Approximately 50 percent of all multi-vehicle accidents are rear-ended collisions. While these may seem like minor accidents, they can lead to serious injuries and mountains of medical and auto repair bills.
Georgia is an At-Fault Car Accident State—Rear Driver Often (But Not Automatically) Liable
Georgia is a fault-based motor vehicle accident jurisdiction. The party (driver or otherwise) deemed responsible for causing an accident is liable for the damages. Most rear-end collisions are caused by the negligence of the rear driver. Some common reasons why these crashes happen are because of speeding, tailgating, distracted driving, or a combination of multiple forms of negligence.
That being said, a rear driver is not automatically liable for a rear-end collision in Georgia. While less common, the front driver could also be found liable for a share of the accident. The specific circumstances always matter. Every rear-end collision in northern Georgia requires a thorough investigation by an experienced Atlanta auto accident attorney.
