Common Causes of Rear-End Accidents

Getting hit from behind in a rear-end accident can be far more dangerous than some other types of crashes. When you are side-swiped in traffic or hit at an angle, your vehicle’s safety systems immediately begin working to protect you. However, this is not always the case with rear-end collisions. If a negligent driver hits you from behind, your body will immediately be whipped forward. If you were struck at a high rate of speed, the force could cause severe injury or even death. While these types of crashes can occur on just about any roadway, understanding the causes of them can help you reduce your risk. Some of the most frequent causes of rear-end crashes include:
