Rear-End Collision Injuries Are Sometimes Serious
Rear-end collisions are exceedingly common and sometimes lead to serious, permanent injuries, extended time away from work, and other concerns. Some common reasons these collisions occur include:
- A speeding driver
- Tailgating or otherwise not leaving enough distance between vehicles
- Drunk driving or drugged driving
- Distracted driving
- Rain, ice, and other weather that makes it take longer to stop
If you were in the front vehicle in a rear-end collision, you may have injuries that include abrasions, lacerations, leg or foot injuries, back injuries, wrist and shoulder injuries, internal injuries, and more. According to the Mayo Clinic, these accidents are a major cause of whiplash and other neck injuries.
Rear-end collisions are the most common type of motor vehicle accident. Every year, half a million people suffer injuries, and thousands suffer fatal injuries in rear-end accidents. While they are often minor, serious injuries do occur relatively frequently. New York auto accident laws allow victims to hold the at-fault driver liable in many of these incidents.
Call Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. at (516) 932-0400 today for a review of your case. We will determine if your injuries and other details of your case support pursuing a fault-based case against the driver who hit you from behind.
