Rear End Accidents

Rear-End Car Accident Lawyer in California

Common Causes of Rear-End Collisions

One of the most common types of serious auto collisions in the Northern California area is rear end accidents. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that nearly 90% of these collisions are the result of driver distraction, when the following driver fails to note that the vehicle ahead is coming to a stop, either slowly or suddenly, at traffic lights, stop signs, or in slowed traffic.

The causes of many rear-end accidents include:

  • Simply not paying attention to the road ahead
  • Eating
  • Internal distractions (children, passengers)
  • Talking or singing
  • Smoking
  • Personal hygiene such as applying makeup or arranging hair
  • Paying attention to the dashboard, radio, or GPS

Taking one's eyes away from the road for just a few seconds could lead to some of the most catastrophic car crashes imaginable. Even low-speed fender benders could result in serious whiplash or soft tissue damage. Regardless of the different causes of rear-end collisions, the end result can often be tragic and catastrophic.

If you or someone you love has been involved in a rear-end accident caused by no fault of your own, contact our California personal injury attorneys immediately.
