The Dangers Of Rear-End Accidents

Rear-end collisions do not have to happen at high speed for the driver and passengers to be injured. These types of accidents can be dangerous at all speeds because the force that hits the vehicle from behind can cause the vehicle's occupants' heads to bounce back and forth, putting them at risk for a traumatic brain injury. If you suffered a concussion or other injury from a rear-end accident, speak with an attorney today.

How Did Your Accident Happen?

Rear-end accidents often involve issues such as:

  • Speeding
  • Following too closely
  • Driving aggressively
  • Drunk or distracted driving
  • Multi-car accidents
  • Commercial vehicles that cannot stop in time
  • Accidents at intersections and stop lights
  • Dangerous road conditions

We will investigate your accident to determine the cause and the liable parties. Our lawyers seek compensation from all liable parties to increase the amount of compensation you recover.

Some of the most common types of injuries people suffer in rear-end collisions include whiplash, neck and back injuries, spinal cord injuries, concussions and other brain injuries, broken bones and air bag injuries. Head and spinal injuries typically require months or years of medical care, so the compensation you need may be significant.
