  • Rear End Accidents

An inattentive driver that loses focus on the roadway and causes a rear end accident can permanently affect the life of the injured victim. The victim of the impact was commonly stopped in traffic or at a stop light or stop sign.

Despite fault for these accidents often being clear, insurance companies sometimes take a dismissive attitude and deny whiplash and back and neck injury claims from rear end accidents. Despite the position insurance companies often take in rear end vehicle accident, serious injuries often result from such accidents. Such injuries include whiplash or disc damage in the neck and back. Injuries may also be sustained to the head and face, including injuries cause by the seatbelt and airbag following impact.

According to the National Safety Council, over 2.5 million rear-end collisions are reported every year, making them the most common type of automobile accident.
