Have You Been Involved In A Rear-End Collision in Florida?

It is a lot easier to prove who is at fault in a rear-end collision than other types of car accidents. However, it may still be difficult for the victim to prove that his or her injuries were caused by the accident. The good news is that if you have an experienced car accident attorney on your side, then you may be able to recover losses. If you have been trying to find an attorney to handle your case, then you should consider contacting Baker & Zimmerman.

What Causes A Rear-End Collision?

In most cases, rear-end collisions occur as the result of distracted or inattentive driving. However, there are several other things that can cause a rear-end collision. Below are some of the things that can lead to a rear-end collision:

  • Aggressive or reckless driving
  • Speeding
  • Not abiding by the laws of the road
  • Driving and texting
  • Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Driver negligence

What Are Some Of The Injuries That Commonly Occur After A Rear-End Collision?

  • Whiplash or another soft tissue injury
  • Ankle and knee injuries
  • Injuries to the face or head, which commonly occurs as the result of airbag deployment
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome, which often occurs because the driver braces for impact

If both of the cars involved in the collision are about the same size, then both of the cars will probably experience about the same amount of damage. However, if there is one vehicle is a lot bigger than the other, the smaller vehicle can likely experience significantly more damage.

Passengers who are in the front car typically experience worse injuries than those who are in the second car. Below are some examples of severe injuries that people commonly experience:
