When most people think of rear end collisions, they do not think about people getting seriously hurt.
“But, it was just a fender bender,” they may say. You may even hear the insurance company say that in the aftermath of a crash.
We want you to know that rear-end collisions cause injuries, sometimes serious ones. The most common injuries we encounter due to rear-end collisions include:
While those injuries range in severity, they all require medical attention. For more severe injuries, a person may need multiple medical procedures performed and even long periods of rehabilitation in order to make a full recovery. A victim who loses valuable income may struggle to pay household bills, not to mention the costly medical bills that will be coming in.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the most common causes of rear-end collisions are:
Any time a driver is following the vehicle in front of it too closely, there is a risk of a rear-end collision occurring. We also need to point out that these incidents often become chain-reaction events. If speeding vehicle slams into a line of vehicles stopped at a traffic light, there could potentially be dozens of people affected.
The attorneys at Shenderovich, Shenderovich & Fishman recognize that each vehicle accident has its own dynamics and cannot be treated the same. If you have been rear-ended, you may need to seek legal assistance to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
