Rear-End Collisions

Posted on 08/15/2014Back

Rear-end collisions are quite common on Minnesota’s roads and highways. These are sometimes the results of inclement weather, including heavy summer rains that reduce visibility or strong winter storms that make braking difficult. More often, however, rear-end collisions are caused by a distracted driver or one who is tailgating the car in front of him.

GoldenbergLaw’s car accident lawyers know that rear-end collisions can be quite serious. When another car strikes yours from behind, you can suffer significant injuries, including:

  • Whiplash
  • Herniated Discs
  • Other neck or back injuries
  • Concussions or other brain injuries

These injuries are painful and often come with significant medical bills or impact on your income.

The rule of thumb on a rear-end collision is that the driver of the car which struck the rear of the first vehicle is almost always liable for the accident. There are some scenarios in which the rear-ended car behaved in such a way as to cause the collision, but state law requires all drivers give the car in front of them enough room so that they can maneuver appropriately in a sudden stop situation.

You can count on GoldenbergLaw’s car accident lawyers to find the cause of your accident and pursue all possible compensation on your behalf.
