What is a Rear-End Accident?

As a personal injury attorney, I have seen many cases of rear-end accidents, which are a type of motor vehicle collision that occurs when one car strikes another car from behind. This is a common type of car accident, and while they are often considered minor, they can lead to significant injuries, especially if the car is traveling at a high speed.

Here are a few things you should know about rear-end accidents:

  • Most rear-end accidents occur due to driver negligence, such as texting while driving, tailgating, or failing to pay attention to traffic.
  • In some cases, weather conditions or mechanical problems with the car can cause a rear-end accident.
  • Rear-end accidents can cause a range of injuries, from minor whiplash to more severe injuries such as head trauma or spinal cord damage.
  • Even if you feel okay after the accident, you should always seek medical attention. Some injuries may not be apparent until later, and prompt medical care can help you recover more quickly and also help support any future claim you may have.
  • It is important to contact an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible following a rear-end accident. An attorney can help protect your rights and work to obtain the compensation you deserve for your injuries, lost wages, and other damages.
