What Is A Rear-End Accident?
As the name implies, rear-end accidents are vehicular collisions involving one car crashing into the rear of the vehicle in front. Rear-end crashes are pretty common. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that rear-end collisions are the most common type of collision, accounting for almost a third of all road accidents in the U.S. As is the case with other accidents, rear-end crashes can cause severe injuries, including:
- Chest injuries
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injuries
- Seat belt injuries
- Facial disfigurement
- Arm and wrist injuries
The common causes of rear-end crashes include:
– Distracted driving
– Aggressive driving
– Drunk driving
– Drowsy driving
However, in some cases, the crash can be caused by natural phenomena.
Who Is At Fault In A Rear-End Accident?
In many cases, the driver that crashes into another is usually at fault. That being said, in Mississippi, we use the Mississippi Code Section 11-7-15 to establish the guilty individual and assert the right of the claimant to receive compensation. By showing that the individual at fault had a duty to drive safely, breached the duty, and caused damages, the claimant can receive compensation for damages, including injuries and property losses.
How Do I Get Compensated If I Have Been In a Rear End Accident?
Asserting your rights to compensation can be a tall order if you do not have the right legal representation. Keep in mind that the insurance company covering the driver at fault is hell-bent on reducing the pay-out they make. After all, their main concern is their bottom line. As such, you should entrust your case to experienced attorneys whose primary goal is to maximize your compensation and to ensure you receive proper medical coverage.
