A traffic accident can change your life forever. Unfortunately, we see many people hospitalized with traumatic brain injuries, internal organ injuries, and even broken bones. Regrettably, many of these accidents that they are harmed in are entirely preventable. In fact, rear-end accidents are incredibly common and continue to be one of the leading causes of crash injuries in our state.
There are many things that can cause a rear-end car accident. One of the most common is distractions. When drivers take their eyes off the road, even for a second, it can lead to an accident.
Speeding is another major cause of rear-end accidents. When drivers are going too fast, they may not be able to stop in time if the car in front of them brakes suddenly.
Failing to yield is another leading cause of rear-end accidents. When drivers fail to yield, they may not give the other car enough time to stop, leading to an accident.
