Out of the 6 million car accidents that the United States averages every year, nearly half of them are rear-end collisions. These are the most common types of car accidents and thousands of them are nothing more serious than “fender benders” where no real damage is done to the vehicles or the occupants of the cars. If you’ve been in a rear-end collision that did cause injury or damage, Hinkle Law Offices can help.
How Rear-End Collisions Happen
Driving requires all of a driver’s attention to be done safely. But there are thousands of distractions available on the road, and it’s easy for people to think it’s safe to look away from the road when they’re creeping along in slow traffic. However, most rear-end collisions happen at less than 10 MPH. And they still cause damage to vehicles as well as injuries to the neck, face, spine, brain and knees.
When a car’s front end collides with another car’s rear end, a rear-end collision has occurred and people can be seriously, even permanently injured. Whiplash, an injury to the neck caused by a severe jerk to the head, can be mild to severe and can cause pain in the neck and shoulders that makes it hard to resume your usual activities. And the worst part of rear-end collisions, especially low-speed incidents, is that those affected rarely get the compensation they deserve.
