Common Injuries Sustained in a Rear End Car Accident

Rear end car accidents are especially known for causing injuries to the back or spine. This is because a rear end car accident causes a person to violently jerked forward in the collision's impact. The most common rear end car accident injury, whiplash, is a result of this jerking motion. Here are some of the most common injuries rear end accident victims suffer:

The severity of injuries caused by a rear end accident will depend on how hard the collision's impact was and if the people involved were wearing seatbelts or not.

Top Causes of Southern California Rear End Car Accidents

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), about 40 percent of all United States car accidents are rear end accidents. This means that if you're involved in a car accident, there's nearly a fifty-fifty chance that it will be a rear end car accident. Here are the most common causes of rear end car accidents our clients have reported over the years:

  • Driver distractions: talking on the phone, texting, checking messages, or even grooming in the rear view mirror – there are many ways a driver can be distracted while behind the wheel. Someone who takes their eyes or attention of the road for even a second can easily cause a rear end car accident.
  • Fatigued drivers: drivers who are too tired to be driving or dozing off behind the wheel often cause rear end car accidents.
  • Tailgating: following behind another car can easily cause a rear end car accident if the vehicle ahead comes to a sudden stop.
  • Weather conditions: many accidents are caused by roads being slippery due to rain, snow, or ice. A slick road can make stopping difficult. Also, poor visibility in bad weather can also cause rear end car accidents.
  • Excessive speed: speeding drivers may have a difficult time stopping in enough time to avoid a rear end car accident.
  • Drivers under the influence: drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs may be too impaired to come to complete stops in enough time to avoid rear end car accidents.
