Causes of Rear-End Collisions

In most cases, the fault for rear-end collisions is assigned to the driver who strikes the car in front of his or her vehicle. Several primary factors have been found to contribute to rear-end accidents, including:

  • Distracted driving such as texting or talking on the phone while driving
  • Failure to pay attention to traffic conditions
  • Inclement weather
  • Excessive speed
  • Following too closely, also known as tailgating
  • Driving while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Potholes and other road damage
  • Road construction

Whiplash, neck and back trauma, and other minor and major injuries can result from rear-end auto crashes. Consulting with a personal injury attorney promptly after an accident can help you protect your legal right to full compensation.

Head-On Collision Causes

Widely considered the most dangerous type of automobile accident, a head-on collision occurs when two vehicles traveling in opposite directions collide front to front. The forward momentum of each vehicle adds to the severity of the impact in these crashes and can cause catastrophic injuries to drivers and passengers in both vehicles.

If there is a significant weight or size differential between the two vehicles, the smaller car or truck may take the brunt of the damage.

Common causes of head-on collisions include:

  • Going the wrong way on a highway
  • Improper passing procedures
  • Falling asleep at the wheel
  • Driving under the influence or while intoxicated due to drugs or alcohol
  • Speeding
  • Loss of control over the vehicle
  • Mechanical failure
