Rear-End Accidents

West Plains Rear-End Accident Lawyer

Car Accident Attorney Serving West Plains

Out of all of the types of car accidents that can occur, rear-end accidents occur the most frequently. A rear-end accident occurs when a driver follows another car too closely and is unable to stop in time when the leading car slows down or stops abruptly.

Who Is at Fault in a Rear-End Collision?

The second driver (the person behind the first car that stopped) is usually to blame in rear-end accidents, especially if they were following too closely or not paying attention to the road. However, there are some situations where this is not the case:

  • If the lead driver reversed into the rear driver
  • If the lead driver was negligent in some way and failed to properly react to their surroundings
  • If the lead driver's brake lights are not functioning properly

Regardless of the circumstances that led to your accident, you should contact a West Plains personal injury attorney for help.

What Injuries Are Typically Sustained in a Rear-End Accident?

Some of the most common rear-end collision injuries include:

  • Whiplash
  • Spinal cord or back injuries
  • Head injuries (including brain injuries)
  • Facial injuries (serious or minor)
  • Wrist or arm injures (often from bracing upon impact)
  • Injuries caused by a seat belt

If you have sustained any injuries in your accident, you should see a medical professional immediately to determine whether or not you have sustained serious damage. Even minor injuries may be cause for concern following a rear-end accident.
