What Are Common Causes of a Rear-End Collision?

Common causes of rear-end collisions include:

Tailgating

Following too closely behind the vehicle in front reduces stopping time, increasing the likelihood of a rear-end collision, especially in sudden braking situations.

Distracted Driving

Activities such as texting, talking on the phone, adjusting the radio, eating, or attending to passengers can take a driver’s attention off the road, leading to rear-end accidents.

Speeding

Driving above the speed limit or too fast for road or weather conditions can make it difficult to stop in time to avoid a collision if the vehicle ahead slows down or stops suddenly.

Sudden Stops

Sudden stops due to traffic congestion, traffic signals, or unexpected obstacles can catch following drivers off guard.

Driver Fatigue

Drowsy drivers may have delayed reaction times and reduced cognitive function, making it harder to respond quickly to changing road conditions, including the need to brake suddenly.

Impaired Driving

Operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or prescription medication can impair judgment, coordination, and reaction times, increasing the risk of rear-end collisions.

Poor Weather Conditions

Rain, fog, and other adverse weather conditions can reduce visibility and traction, making it more challenging to stop or maneuver safely and increasing the likelihood of rear-end accidents.

Mechanical Issues

Malfunctioning brakes, worn tires, or other mechanical failures can compromise a vehicle’s ability to stop or slow down effectively, contributing to rear-end collisions.

Road Hazards

Potholes, debris, uneven road surfaces, and other roadway hazards can necessitate sudden braking or swerving, potentially causing rear-end accidents.

Inexperienced Drivers

Inexperienced drivers may lack the skills necessary to anticipate and respond appropriately to changing traffic conditions, increasing their risk of being involved in rear-end collisions.

Injuries Sustained in Rear-End Crashes

The injuries sustained in a rear-end collision can range from minor to life-changing, depending on the speed at which the vehicles were traveling at the time of the crash, whether one vehicle was stationary, whether seat belts were used, and whether a vehicle’s safety features were effective. 

Common injuries that can occur in this type of crash include:

  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Chest injuries
  • Whiplash

What is the Statute of Limitations for Rear-End Accidents?

In Georgia, you will have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit against the other driver. If you miss this important deadline, your case may be dismissed. This means you will be unable to pursue compensation for any of your accident-related losses. While two years may seem like a long time, it’s important to pursue compensation as soon as possible following a car crash. When you hire a rear-end accident attorney at the Hines Law Firm, they will begin investigating your accident right away and will ensure all paperwork is filed correctly and within the statute of limitations.

What Types Of Compensation Can I Recover After a Rear-End Accident?

If you were involved in an accident that was caused by a negligent driver and you suffered injuries, vehicle damage, and other losses, you may be entitled to the following types of compensation:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Past and future medical care costs
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Loss of consortium
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of quality of life
And more.

Your attorney will evaluate your case to determine which damages you’re entitled to. They may even consult with experts, depending on the severity of your injuries and whether your condition will require medical treatment in the future.
