Rear Ended On Highway When Traffic Suddenly Slowed


Car Accident Lawyer for Rear End Crash
Car Accident Lawyer for Rear End Crash

Our car accident lawyers handle many rear-end accident cases every year. These crashes can happen different ways.  In most cases, the accident happens because the other driver was distracted.  Everyone knows about the problem with cellphone use in the car. However, there other distractions as well. For instance, the “infotainment” system is very distracting.  We have had several of cases where the driver was adjusting the music or setting the GPS. If traffic slows ahead, there can be a bad rear end crash in just seconds.

Another frequent problem, of course, is when the car behind you was following too close. Again, when traffic suddenly slows the driver fails to react in time and causes a crash. It is really a poor excuse to blame the crash on traffic stopping ahead of you. The driver is responsible for leaving enough space and keeping control of their vehicle. Traffic can always slow. That is why you need to keep some distance between cars.

A rear-end collision can cause significant damage and very serious injuries. For one thing, most car’s airbags don’t go off when they are hit from the rear.  That leaves the passengers more exposed to injury.  In addition, of course, the collision is usually completely unexpected so the passengers cannot brace for impact. It is common to sustain a neck injury from a rear-end accident. However, our lawyers have seen many different types of injuries depending on the severity of the impact.
