Rear-end accidents happen for numerous reasons, and they occur with great frequency. A careless driver could hit moving and stopped vehicles from behind on Texas roads. Hopefully, only property damage results, but victims might suffer injuries from such a collision. Sometimes, the victims find themselves wondering who caused the accident.
Liability and rear-end collisions
Determining who caused a car accident may guide a victim’s approach to taking legal action. When a drunk driver suffers from concentration and perception issues and crashes into a parked vehicle, that driver’s negligence appears obvious.
However, an intoxicated driver may overreact and hit the brakes without warning, causing the vehicle behind the car to crash into it. The driver who hit the vehicle may have a liability suit against the drunk driver in such a situation. So might the passengers in both cars.
Even a pedestrian or a bicyclist could be at fault for a rear-end collision. Anyone whose actions cause an accident may face civil consequences.
Rear-end collisions and their injuries
Car accidents involving rear-end collisions could leave people suffering from serious injuries. Even minor whiplash may leave someone with medical expenses and could force them to take time off from work. Spinal injuries might leave someone with a permanent disability, and some rear-end collisions could result in fatalities.
Among the worst accidents that anyone could face involve a moving vehicle hitting one that is not moving. Hitting a car stopped at a red light or a stop sign may leave an unaware driver or passenger suffering significant harm.
Similar collisions may occur on a highway. A distracted driver might not realize that upcoming traffic has slowed or stopped and could run into another vehicle, resulting in a multicar accident.
Auto liability or uninsured driver coverage may help someone seeking compensation after an accident. However, filing a lawsuit might be necessary as well.
