Rear End Collisions
REAR END COLLISIONS
Rear End collisions are the most common type of automobile accident. Nearly 3,000,000 rear end accidents occur in the United States each and every year. Almost 1/3 of every car accident is of the Rear End collision type.
The most common reason for rear end accidents is the negligence of the driver in following too closely for the weather conditions, road conditions or rate of speed or quick braking by a driver to avoid another vehicle. The accident occurs when the front car stops suddenly and the driver behind it is unable to avoid the collision. You will also see accidents that occur when the vehicle is stopped and due to the negligence of the driver behind it, due to distraction or inattention, strikes the vehicle from behind at a light, stop sign or other traffic control device.
Rear end collisions, while not as forceful as the head-on collision, can cause serious injuries to the driver and passengers of the motor vehicle. Rear end collisions can cause cervical and lumbar disc herniations, disk bulging, whiplash, concussions and other painful and severe injuries.
