Common Injuries in a Rear-End Crash

Injuries in a rear-end collision may differ from other types of accidents. When one vehicle forcefully collides with the back of another, the driver in front may sustain substantial damage to their head and neck. When the neck is hyperextended, it can lead to injury of the soft tissue known as whiplash. Whiplash occurs when the head snaps backward and then forwards rapidly.

Who is Liable in Tailgating Accidents?

Finding the cause of a crash is central to an injury claim. In many cases, rear-end accidents result from a distracted driver. In other instances, these crashes can stem from careless or intoxicated drivers. There is a common belief that the following driver is always at fault in a rear-end crash.

Motorists owe a duty to other drivers to watch the road in front of them. Because of this duty, the following driver is ultimately responsible for avoiding collisions with hazards in front of them. When these drivers fail to keep a reasonable distance or become distracted, they can cause severe crashes. In these situations, the following motorist could face liability for the injuries of the other driver.

However, there are situations in which the motorist in front could be responsible. Therefore, a plaintiff should never assume that they will prevail on these claims. Still, with the right legal counsel, obtaining a positive outcome could be possible. A Columbus attorney could assess a rear-end accident case and identify the best legal strategy for that particular situation.
