Rear-end accidents are the most common type of auto accident, but are often unavoidable. Many people never see the car that hit them before impact. Those who do, often see the oncoming vehicle too late to take any action to avoid being hit.Some drivers may look into the rearview mirror at the last moment and see the other car moments before impact. The knowledge of the impending impact causes the driver to "brace" for impact, which may cause additional injury. Common situations where rear-end accidents occur include:
- At intersections
- At stoplights
- In stop-and-go traffic on the highway
- Exiting a parking lot or side road onto a busy street
Rear-End Accidents Often Cause Serious Soft Tissue Injuries
Rear-end accidents cause serious injuries that can have a lasting impact on a person's quality of life. Soft tissue injuries such as "whiplash" are a common result of rear-end collisions. This is challenging in that insurance companies are very aggressive in their attempts to minimize or deny claims based on soft tissue injuries because of the subjective nature of the injuries. Soft tissue injuries lack definitive proof like an X-ray of a broken bone. These types of injuries require additional proof and reports from medical experts in order to properly educate the person who is valuing the claim, whether it is the insurance company or a jury.
This makes it all the more important that you secure the representation of a skilled attorney who knows how to build the strongest case in even the most difficult circumstances.
