Rear End Accident
Rear-end accidents often cause serious injuries and considerable damage to the vehicles. Rear-end accidents are the most common type of auto accident in the U.S. According to National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA), out of the 6 million car accidents that happen in U.S. every year, 40% of them (2.5 million) are rear-end collisions.
Rear-end accidents may cause serious injuries such as head injury, brain injury, broken bones and more. Although most rear-end collisions involve impacts that occur at less than 10 mph and the vehicles may sustain little or no visible damages, they can still cause long-term injuries on your bone, spine, brain, neck, face and knees
Cause of the Rear-end Accident
Rear-end accidents are often caused by the inattentiveness of the driver directly behind you. Distracted driving is the leading cause of auto accidents in U.S. today. The NHTSA reports that drivers are four times more likely to have an accident when using a hand-hold device while driving. Common types of distraction include:
- Talking or texting on cell phone
- Eating and drinking
- Talking to passengers
- Watching videos
- Adjusting a radio, CD player or MP3 player
