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
Following too closely, also known as tailgating
Driving while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs or alcohol
Neck and back trauma, 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
Loss of control over the vehicle
