Rear-end collisions are the most common type of car accident, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Between 2012 and 2014, nearly half of all 2-vehicle crashes were rear-end collisions. In 2017, about 2,456 of these crashes were fatal, accounting for 7.2% of the year’s fatal accidents. In 2018, rear-end crashes killed 1,310 motor vehicle occupants. Even those who survive rear-end accidents can be left with catastrophic injuries. To make matters worse, 87% of rear-end crashes involve a driver failing to pay attention to the traffic ahead.
If you lose a loved one to a rear-end crash in California or Texas, we can also help you file a wrongful death lawsuit, which can help you pay for your family member’s funeral and give you the resources you need to grieve without worrying about finances. In cases of extreme negligence, we may also ask for punitive damages to punish the wrongdoer and provide you with extra financial comfort.
Most rear-end accidents are caused by the inattention of the rear driver. If someone is texting while driving they are 7 times more likely to run into you (AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety).
All the behaviors listed above or failing to account for dangerous conditions on the road can account for rear-end accidents and serious injuries.
If you’ve suffered any of the injuries above, you may be entitled to compensation. Having the right resources can help you recover or adjust to the permanent changes the accident may have caused.
