Rear End Collision Lawyer in Tampa, FL
Tampa Auto Accident Attorneys
A rear end car accident is one wherein one vehicle collides with the back
of another vehicle. These accidents most commonly occur because one vehicle
stops suddenly, although even in the event of a normal stop the second
driver may collide with the vehicle in front of him or her if he or she
is not paying attention. Everyday
distractions such as eating, drinking, talking on the phone, texting and talking to
a passenger may cause a driver to become involved in a rear end collision.
These types of accidents are common, contributing to millions of car crashes
across the United States every year.

Common Injuries and Seeking Compensation
The injuries that a victim may sustain in a rear end collision are often
unique, most often due to the front driver seeing the vehicle approaching
from behind and bracing for impact. In some accidents, the driver that
is colliding into the car in front of theirs may also make attempts to
decelerate, slamming on the brakes and reducing the total speed of their
vehicle before impact occurs. Since this can lower the speed of the vehicle,
the types of injuries received in rear end accidents are different than
those caused by other impacts.
Injuries that may occur during a rear end car crash:
Either driver in a rear end collision may suffer injury from airbag deployment,
as it may strike the face or even the hands and cause scraping injury or even
broken bones in some cases. Getting immediate medical attention can be important in
discovering, diagnosing, and taking the appropriate steps to treat these
conditions. In addition, this can help any
personal injury claim you may make against another driver since it can be shown that the
car accident directly impacted your condition.

Although a minor rear end collision may not seem to warrant the need to
work with an attorney, this can result in extensive property damage to
your car as well as physical injuries and therefore medical bills. While
it is generally assumed that the driver of the second car is responsible
for all damages, it may not always be the case. If the other driver attempts
to lay the blame of the accident on your shoulders, you may find that
you are facing increased insurance premiums, as well.
