Rear-end Accidents

Proven Anchorage Auto Accident Lawyer – (888) 295-6566

Rear-end accidents occur when the front of one car collides with the rear of another. The sudden forces of these accidents can cause serious injuries, and your car may be pushed into another car, resulting in further damage.

If you’ve been involved in a rear-end collision, it can be a challenge to prove fault in your accident and prove that your injuries are due to the accident. As an Anchorage car accident attorney with over 20 years of experience, I am prepared to help you gather the evidence you need to recover compensation for your injuries.

Rear-End Accident Injuries

This type of collision often results in some very specific injuries. Often, these accidents occur at low speeds, but they still can cause severe injuries. Even minor rear-end accidents may cause airbag deployment, which can cause further injuries. Often, the lead car is subject to much greater damage, and the passengers and driver may sustain far more serious injuries than the other car.

Common rear-end accident injuries include:

  • Whiplash
  • Facial and head injuries
  • Ankle and knee injuries
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and wrist injuries
  • Nerve damage
  • Spinal cord injuries (SCI) and paralysis
  • Blunt-force trauma and internal organ damages
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Neck and back injuries

Not every injury may be apparent immediately after the accident. Some injuries, such as whiplash and other soft tissue injuries, may take days or weeks to manifest. For this reason, it is critical to seek medical care after your accident to ensure that your injuries are properly addressed, and you can make a claim for these injuries.

Causes of Rear-End Accidents

Rear-end accidents are often caused by a combination of factors, including deceleration by the lead car and the lack of reaction time afforded to the driver of the second car. Other actions can affect these factors and can contribute to a rear-end collision.

These behaviors include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Texting
  • Speeding
  • Driver negligence
  • Drunk or drugged driving
  • Tailgating
  • Ignoring traffic laws
  • Failure to stop
  • Failure to pull completely off the road
