Rear-End Accident Injury Lawyer
Rear-end accidents are one of the most common types of auto accidents that generally involve the front end of a vehicle colliding into the rear of another vehicle. These collisions can occur at high and low speeds and almost always result in significant material and physical damage to vehicle occupants and to the vehicles themselves.
Unfortunately, many rear end collisions can be prevented as most are caused by drivers who simply fail to stop in time which is often the result of the at-fault driver being distracted, speeding or experiencing a mechanical failure.

Causes of Rear-End Collisions
Driver inexperience is a common causes of rear-end collisions as new drivers are unable to fully grasp how slowly the vehicle in front of them is going and how much room is in between them. A study by the National Center for Statistics and Analysis of rear-end crashes in 2003 found that male drivers under the age of 18 are the most likely driver to be involved in a rear-end crash.
Some other common causes of rear-end accidents include:
Drivers who fail to properly maintain their vehicles brakes and tires can cause rear-end collisions as stopping can be much more difficult with poor tire tread and poor brakes. Drivers who recklessly drive in bad weather conditions may also not permit enough space between themselves and the vehicle in front of them while could cause a rear-end accident.
Common Rear-End Collision Injuries
When the front of end of one vehicle crashes into the back end of another, passengers in the backseat may suffer injuries as can those in the front seat. If a person was not wearing their seatbelt they are more likely to suffer serious injuries.

The sudden jerk forward and back of such an accident is what makes drivers and passengers more susceptible to suffering neck injuries and head trauma should they collide with the dashboard or headrests.
