Consequences Of Rear-End Collisions
A rear-end collision can cause a concussion or more severe brain injury. Even if you do not hit your head, the blow to your body can result in a brain injury. It is a good idea to go to the emergency room to make sure you do not have a brain injury. People in rear-end accidents may also suffer injuries such as whiplash, spinal cord injuries, back injuries and broken bones.
The rear vehicle is usually liable in a rear-end collision. Even if the car in front slows or stops, the rear vehicle is responsible for avoiding the accident. Many of these accidents involve issues such as:
- Failing to stop at an intersection
- Trucks unable to stop in traffic
- Speeding and reckless driving
- Multivehicle pileups
If your car was rear-ended by a drunk driver or a distracted driver, you may be entitled to punitive damages in addition to the compensatory damages.
