Common Causes of Rear End Crashes

In fact, most rear end accidents involve one of the following activities:

Any of these actions can have deadly consequences if they keep a driver from recognizing approaching dangers.

Typical Injuries for Those Involved in Rear End Crashes

Victims of rear end crashes often suffer from neck and spine injuries, usually as a result of the force of an impact causing the head to snap forward or backward, which in turn, can tear ligaments, damage the spine, and pull muscles. Vehicle occupants who are rear ended may also suffer from chest injuries caused by coming into contact with the steering wheel.

Organs with ligament attachments, such as the spleen and liver are especially vulnerable to injury in these types of crashes. Facial injuries are also not uncommon in rear end accidents and are often the result of forceful impacts with the airbag, dashboard, or window.

The seriousness of someone’s injury also depends on a series of other factors, including:

  • The age and general health of the injured party;
  • The number of vehicles involved;
  • The speed at which the cars were traveling; and
  • The size of the cars.

Depending on the severity of the injury, a car crash victim may be required to pay thousands of dollars in medical bills. Fortunately, injured parties can often collect compensation because in almost all rear end car accidents, the driver who crashes into the other car will be considered at-fault.

This is due to the fact that he or she should have been driving far enough behind the first car to avoid the crash. In most situations, the responsible party can recover compensation from the at-fault driver’s insurer, through settlement negotiations, or a lawsuit.
