What Caused The Rear-End Accident?
There are numerous scenarios that can lead to rear-end accidents, including:
- Following too closely on the highway
- Distracted driving
- Failure to leave appropriate stopping distance
- Failure to recognize traffic signals
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
This type of collision forces the driver in the lead car to jolt backward and then forward in a rapid manner. These forces can have devastating results in the head, neck and spine. The most common injury is a cervical strain, often referred to as “whiplash.” This neck injury can result in serious symptoms such as migraines, blurred vision or loss of balance. A severe whiplash injury can lead to loss of work. Let us fight to ensure you are financially compensated for your injuries.
