Getting rear ended can take you by surprise. Most drivers never see the other car coming. Rear end accidents often present the same types of injuries. However, just because these injuries are common, does not mean that they are not painful or should not be compensated. Even the more minor injuries left by an accident can take months to fully heal.
As is the case with any car accident, it is important to wait a few days or weeks to wait for all symptoms to develop.
Common injuries in rear end collisions include:
Is the Other Driver at Fault?
Typically, the driver in the front car of the rear end car accident will not be found to be at fault in causing the accident. Usually, the car behind is at fault for failing to control his or her speed.
However, there are complicating factors such as the weather, roadway conditions and the front car’s brake lights. These types of factors can call into question which car was at fault. In these cases, a lawyer can be helpful in convincing a court or insurance company that you were not at fault and should be compensated for 100 percent of your injuries.
