Common Causes of Rear-End Accidents

Rear-end accidents are almost always considered to be the fault of the person in the back, known as the tailing driver. Traffic safety laws dictate that drivers should travel a considerable distance behind the car in front of them, that way they can stop safely and without incident.

The common causes of rear-end collisions include:

  • Tailgating
  • Congested streets or freeways
  • Panic stopping or a sudden stop by the lead car
  • Inattentiveness or driver distraction

Lead drivers should have little difficulty in proving the tailing driver's fault for the accident, as insurance companies usually assume the tailing driver's fault.

Proving Fault for the Lead Driver in a Rear-End Collision

In some cases, it is actually the lead driver who is at-fault for the accident, and this is extremely hard to prove. Drivers should obtain counsel from a skilled rear-end accident lawyer in Cape Cod before making a claim.

Frequent situations that may assign blame to the lead driver include:

  • The sudden entrance of another vehicle or object into your lane. If another driver pulls out in front of you and brakes, you may be able to show that you are not liable.
  • The unexpected reversing of the lead driver. While stopped at a light, it is actually quite common for drivers to accidentally put their cars into reverse, causing them to hit a vehicle behind them.
  • Staged crashes. Some drivers will maneuver around others and then purposely cause a crash that looks to be the other person's fault. These situations can be extremely difficult to prove, as you must be able to show the other driver's fraudulent behavior.

Regardless of what your insurance company may have said, you need to speak with a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible when you are involved in this kind of accident. The right representation could be the difference in preventing an increased insurance premium and recovering compensation for your injuries and damaged vehicle.

Types of Damages You Could Recover

Many serious injuries can result from a rear-end accident, from herniated disks to head trauma. Recovering from these types of injuries takes time and often requires substantial medical intervention and extensive time off work. Besides the physical pain you have to endure, you may also struggle financially. Filing a personal injury claim is often the only way you can maintain financial stability.

As a result of your rear-end collision, you may be entitled to significant compensation for a variety of losses, including:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Pain and suffering
