A rear-end collision is essentially a collision in which one car hits the back of another. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, rear-end collisions account for almost a third of all car crashes throughout the country. These types of crashes, while rarely deadly, can still cause serious injuries and significant loss of property.
Rear-end crashes, while seemingly minor, often result in painful neck or back injuries. Injuries as a result of a rear end collision may not manifest themselves immediately, or in severe ways either. Injuries from what at first seemed minor accidents may take days or even weeks before causing any adverse effects.
