Rear-End Collisions

Injuries From Rear-End Collisions

Rear-end collisions can lead to serious, devastating injuries, particularly to the neck and spine. If you hit your head on the steering wheel or head rest, you may have a traumatic brain injury (TBI) or other type of head injury.

Rear-End Collisions and Insurance: Who Is at Fault?

Generally, insurance companies assign fault to the driver of the car who rear-ended the car in front of him or her. In the view of the insurance company, this driver should have left room to stop or could have swerved to prevent a collision.

This means that if you were rear-ended, you are entitled to benefits for the accident to help you cover medical costs and lost wages. Additionally, you may have a personal injury claim against the negligent driver who caused your rear-end collision. This can provide you with the compensation you need to cover additional out-of-pocket expenses and entitle you to damages for your pain and suffering.
