What are Rear End Collisions?
Rear-impact collisions, also referred to as rear enders, are among the most common types of car accidents in Utah. They can lead to a wide variety of serious injuries, including back and neck injuries such as whiplash.
Rear End Accidents Caused by Tailgating
Driving too close is extremely commonplace on the streets and highways of Utah, so much so that people take for granted just how dangerous it can be. It is often the cause of rear-end collisions, because it does not allow the driver enough time to stop if a car ahead of him or her comes to a sudden halt. This problem is made even worse when the driver who is following too close is also texting and driving or is distracted in some other way.
Negligence Is Clear
One of the steps in a personal injury case is proving liability. This step may be simplified in rear-end collision cases, because it is obvious that the person who caused the accident should have stopped when the driver in front of him or her stopped at a stop sign or red light. It is clear that the driver who caused the accident was negligent. In some cases, however, distracted driving or other causes can lead to these types of accidents. Such causes can only be found through the hard work and thorough investigation that we provide in every case.
