Rear-end collisions are the most common type of
Rear-end accidents occur when one driver's vehicle collides with the
vehicle in front of it. Rear-end accidents most often occur when the driver of the second vehicle
is following too closely or is distracted and therefore does not have
enough time to stop when the motorist ahead of them slows down or stops
unexpectedly. In some cases, however, it is possible that the first driver
may be partially responsible for pulling out suddenly in front of the
second driver or cutting them off, and therefore not giving the second
driver the opportunity to stop in time.

How To Recover Damages for a Rear-End Accident
It is very common for victims of rear-end collisions to experience the pain of
whiplash. Whiplash is a soft tissue injury that damages the neck when the head
and neck are thrown forward because of sudden impact and then back into
place again. Additionally, many victims also suffer neck and back injuries,
air bag and seat belt injuries, and even concussions. The settlement that
may be awarded in a rear-end accident claim may vary depending on the
extent of injury and property damage.
