Common Causes of Rear End Accidents
Accidents are reported and analyzed federally and in each state in order to address the problem and determine how to reduce the chances of these accidents happen.
Within this research, analysts found that some of the most common causes of rear-end crashes included:
- Defective vehicle
- Unexpected road hazards
- Unsafe lane change
- Bad weather conditions (fog, heavy rains, etc.)
- Failing to maintain a vehicle (brake lights, brake pads, etc.)
One of the dangers of these types of accidents is that it can involve multiple vehicles, sudden braking can lead to pile-up which commonly occurs on two-lane highways.
Although the trailing driver is often at-fault for this type of accident, if a vehicle's brake lights are out or the vehicle's parts malfunctioned the individual in the preceding driver may be held liable.
Rear End Accident Injuries
Even if an accident occurs at slow speeds, victims are likely to suffer injuries that could require hospitalization and extended medical care.
Some common injuries associated with rear-end collisions include:
Seeking medical treatment is not only expensive, it is also time-consuming as rehabilitative treatment could last several months.
