Rear End Collisions

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.
