Actually, It Is a Big Deal: Do You Know Your Rights and Legal Options?

Often, drivers feel they can handle these accidents themselves, perhaps because of how common they are. But insurance companies are not on your side. You deserve to have someone looking out for your interests. At the Law Offices of Miller & Mallett, we specialize in representing victims of rear-end accidents and car accidents of all kinds. We provide expert legal guidance and compassionate support to help you navigate the complexities of the legal system and recover the compensation you deserve.

Not As Obvious as You Think: Rear-End Accidents

Rear-end accidents occur when one vehicle collides with the back of another vehicle. These accidents can happen for various reasons, including:

  • Distracted driving: Activities such as texting, talking on the phone, or adjusting the radio can divert a driver's attention from the road, increasing the risk of a rear-end collision.
  • Tailgating: Following another vehicle too closely reduces the driver's reaction time and makes it more likely for them to rear-end the vehicle in front if it suddenly stops.
  • Speeding: Driving above the speed limit or too fast for road conditions can make it difficult for a driver to stop in time to avoid a collision.
  • Driver fatigue: Tired or drowsy drivers may have slower reaction times, making it harder for them to brake quickly when necessary.

Regardless of the cause, these very common rear-end accidents can result in a range of injuries. The truth is, a “minor” fender-bender can cause years of pain and suffering. Get checked by a doctor and consider retaining legal counsel. The small bit of extra effort now can save you a lot of suffering later.

Rear-End Accidents: Most Common Injuries 

Common injuries resulting from rear-end accidents include: 

  • Whiplash, where the sudden jerking motion of the head strains neck muscles and ligaments. This can lead to neck pain, stiffness, headaches, and even cognitive issues like memory problems or difficulty concentrating. 
  • Back injuries such as herniated discs or spinal fractures may occur due to the impact's force, causing intense pain and mobility issues. 
  • Soft tissue injuries like strains and sprains are also prevalent, affecting muscles and ligaments in the back and shoulders. 
  • Additionally, victims might experience psychological trauma such as anxiety or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) due to the accident's suddenness and severity.
