Rear-End Accidents


Rear End Accident Attorneys

Proving Fault and Pursing Results

Rear-end collisions are the most common type of car accident, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Between 2012 and 2014, nearly half of all 2-vehicle crashes were rear-end collisions. In 2017, about 2,456 of these crashes were fatal, accounting for 7.2% of the year’s fatal accidents. In 2018, rear-end crashes killed 1,310 motor vehicle occupants.

Even those who survive rear-end accidents can be left with catastrophic injuries. To make matters worse, 87% of rear-end crashes involve a driver failing to pay attention to the traffic ahead.

A successful claim can help you account for:
  • Medical bills
  • Transportation to and from doctor’s appointments
  • Rehabilitative care
  • Time off work
  • Changes to your personal or professional life
  • Pain and suffering
  • And more

If you lose a loved one to a rear-end crash in California or Nevada, we can also help you file a wrongful death lawsuit, which can help you pay for your family member’s funeral and give you the resources you need to grieve without worrying about finances.

In cases of extreme negligence, we may also ask for punitive damages to punish the wrongdoer and provide you with extra financial comfort.

Causes and Effects of Rear-End Accidents

Most rear-end accidents are caused by the inattention of the rear driver. If someone is texting while driving they are 7 times more likely to run into you (AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety).

Other common causes of rear-end collisions include:
  • Drunk driving
  • Drowsy driving
  • Speeding
  • Tailgating
  • Improper lane changes
  • Aggressive driving or road rage
  • Disregard of traffic signals
  • Failure to yield
  • Reversing into another vehicle
  • Hazardous road or weather conditions

All the behaviors listed above or failing to account for dangerous conditions on the road can account for rear-end accidents and serious injuries.

The following are some of the most common injuries we see at our firm:
  • Whiplash and other soft tissue injuries
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Concussions and other traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Broken bones and fractures
