According to some statistics, rear end accidents are the most common form of car accidents on American roads and highways. Drivers following too closely and tailgating may not have enough time to react to a braking incident, crashing into the rear end of the automobile in front of them. In other situations, distracted or intoxicated drivers fail to see that traffic has stopped at an upcoming intersection, colliding full speed into the drivers waiting at the light or stop sign. No matter what the exact cause of your crash, the results are often devastating and personal injury litigation is required to fully compensate the injured.
