What Causes Rear-End Crashes?

Occasionally, we see a rear-end collision caused by failing brakes, but most happen because someone wasn’t paying attention.

Some common causes of rear-end crashes are:

  • Distracted driving (such as texting while driving, reaching for something in the backseat, or talking on the phone)
  • Speeding
  • Running a red light
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Defective or inoperable traffic signals

And it’s not always the rear car that’s at fault, so even if you hit someone from behind, you could still be entitled to compensation.

What Damages Are Available to Rear-End Crash Victims?

Most people injured in a rear-end collision can seek economic damages as well as non-economic damages.

Economic damages are calculable monetary losses such as:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages and loss of future earning capacity
  • Home medical equipment
  • Nursing care
  • Property damage
  • Out-of-pocket expenses related to your accident
  • Travel expenses related to medical treatment
  • Physical and occupational therapy

Non-economic damages compensate you less tangible losses such as:

  • Physical pain
  • Emotional trauma
  • Fear of driving
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Loss of consortium
  • Disability or disfigurement

We hire experts to help us accurately calculate the full value of your damages–including all future medical care and the lifelong traumatic effects of the accident.

We Fight to Recover Compensation for All of Your Injuries From a Rear-End Crash

We see a wide range of injuries from rear-end collisions, including:

  • Whiplash
  • Seat belt injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Face and neck lacerations and bruising
  • Crushing injuries, particularly to legs and feet
  • Amputations
  • Paraplegia and quadriplegia
  • Airbag injuries
  • Burns and abrasions
  • Wrongful death

We work to recover the maximum compensation for medical treatment and the long-term effects of all of your injuries.

How Much Is My Rear-End Crash Case Worth?

We won’t know until we have more information about the specifics of your case, but there are some general factors that affect the value of any case, such as:

  • The severity of your injuries
  • How long you were forced to miss work
  • Whether you were in any way at fault for the accident
  • The value of the insurance policies involved
  • Whether you promptly sought medical attention
  • The extent of property damage
  • How the accident affects you mentally and emotionally
  • How the accident affects your ability to support your family (financially, physically, or emotionally)

Fatal accidents or ones with serious injuries tend to be worth more, but there’s no hard and fast rule.
