Rear End Collisions

Posted by:

In terms of automobile accidents, rear-end collisions are one of the most common types of collisions.  Even a relatively minor collision has the potential to result in significant damage.

 Common factors resulting in rear-end collisions include:

  • Driver distraction

  • Driver inattention

  • Panic stops

  • Tailgating

  • Reduced traction due to weather

The most common injury resulting from a rear-end collision is whiplash, a catch-all term for a variety of neck injuries. In 2012, there were over 500,000 whiplash claims in the US alone. For collisions occurring at high speed, victims are at risk of herniation, death, and a long list of permanent injuries.
